If you've been on the beach (or at the South Beach Wine & Food Festival) too much recently, it's time to add a little culture to your diet, at New Times' fifth annual Artopia.
Tomorrow, Thursday, February 28, from 7 to 10 p.m., the Coral Gables Museum will transform into an epic celebration of art, music, film, fashion, and culture as all these world collide -- with cocktails.
Winners of MasterMind Awards, $1,000 grants given to local artists who show promise in the arts community, will also be announced at the event.
The evening will also feature live performances by Palo!, the Larry Joe Miller Band, Cirque
