This Is It
When Art Basel rolls into town, try not to be blinded by its international glamour and Im-so-cool-I-come-to-Miami-only-once-a-year bravado. Our advice: Keep your 305 spirit high and patronize the local artists who grind it out year-round. The folks at Miamis It are all about keeping the spotlight on South Florida. Just as our city is a crossroads of cross-cultural pollination, the organization brings together artists working in various mediums, in both public and private spaces, and will feature them all during Basel at Miamis Independent Thinkers, a multimedia satellite fair designed to showcase new talent and blow your mind.
The event is still weeks away, but join Miamis It this Friday for a fundraiser that will make sure each sculpture, painting, and collage will be primed and ready for viewing. From 7 to 11 p.m., partake in Fashion, Film & Music a place to mingle with fellow culture lovers and float a few dollars to a great local cause. A minimum $15 donation is required, but feel free to dig a little deeper if you want to play patron for a night. The giving, fashion, music, and art will go down at Club 50 in the Viceroy Hotel.
Fri., Nov. 20, 7 p.m., 2009
