Art à la Carte

If you’re craving a mixed-media medley with your wild mushroom linguine or a conceptual canvas to spice up that order of clams sofrito, belly up to the Brickell Art Walk (BAW) this Tuesday from 5 to 10 p.m. and tickle both your peepers and your palate. With more of a boho-café-society vibe than a traditional gallery feel, BAW, held every last Tuesday of the month, features emerging local talent showcasing their wares at some of the Magic City’s trendiest eateries. The event takes place in Mary Brickell Village (901 S. Miami Ave., Miami) at venues such as Perricone’s, Dolores but You Can Call Me Lolita, Barú Urbano, Burger & Beer Joint, and Balans. Participant creative types during this month’s cultural buffet will include Felipe Garcia, Pablo Gehr, Olga Molina, Eva Marcela Avila, Emil Bodourov, and Laelanie Larach. Make sure to knock back a couple of apple martinis before joining Avila for some of her trademark Brittoesque body painting. Next, bone up on Bodourov’s squid-like abstract confections while taking in Larach’s opulent blooming orchid concoctions. And if art à la carte isn’t enough to set your senses slavering, organizers say Plan Beat and guitarist Peter Betan will get their groove on to engage your ears.
