Best Art Exhibit Miami 2009 - "Sympathy for the Devil: Art and Rock and Roll Since 1967"

This nearly pitch-perfect exhibition, organized by curator Dominic Molon over a five-year span, explored the deep-rooted and primal alliances between rebellious spirits haunting both the sonic and visual realms. It featured more than 100 paintings, drawings, installations, and videos by 56 artists and artist collectives. The show was organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, where it drew stadium-size crowds. MoCA's turnstile numbers skyrocketed as well. Although some knuckleheads wailed about holes in the exhibition's version of rock history, you couldn't leave without giving this devil his due.

This was one of the best art installations I have seen in Miami(and I have seen many for I am a regular at Gallery Walk & many other art events...including Art Basel)so kudos to the person that picked this was absolutely amazing & even if there were some flaws in the history at least we had the opportunity to actually get to see some of this work up close...awesome!!!
