Every year the Miami New Times offers Mastermind Awards: a $1,000 cash grant and city-wide exposure to creatives all over the 305. Not only do we give three creatives some cool cash, but we also celebrate their artistic achievements at our annual shindig Artopia.
Artopia gives our Mastermind winners a chance to exhibit their work to broader public and allows you to rub elbows with Miami's up-and-coming creatives. You can say you knew them before they were famous and maybe even down a drink -- or two -- with our winners.
If past years are any indication, you won't want to miss it.
Artopia returns for its seventh showing on Thursday, February 26, to the Coral Gables Museum. This is your chance to buy your Artopia tickets early. Buy your tickets before they go on sale to the general public by visiting this link to Ticketfly.com. Enter the promo code PREART2 to buy your tickets early.
Better get to it, the offer ends Sunday, January 11 at 10 p.m.
If you're an artist, musician, culinary master, or performer and you're thinking this Mastermind Award sounds like a pretty sweet deal, then be sure to turn in your applications by Monday, January 19.
Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
