Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

The sun has been in hiding for the past couple of days, and we’ve all been going through withdrawal. Citizens of Miami have been seen huddling around fluorescent lights and doing the sun-dance – a move that strangely resembles the Macarena. Since wetness is in the forecast for the next few days we have a rainy-day, cabin fever suggestion for you that will make you appear cultured – as opposed to insane.

Go downtown Friday night, to Soya & Pomodoro (120 N.E. 1st Street, Miami), for the opening of “A Place to Call Home.” Neo-pop artist Ed King will be displaying his latest offering to the art gods, a collection of chromatic bliss. Take your mind off the fact that you haven’t been able to wear your favorite Jackie O shades and enjoy the fruits of King’s labor – the piece above can get you started.

Other artisans included in the exhibit are Xavier Cortada, Jean Villamizar, Luis Valle, Diego Romero, Eric Walton, Scott Hickey, Ignacio Font, and Matt Stock. The reception is from 7-10 p.m. but you can check out the exhibit until October 5. Visit www.kaleidoscopeconspiracy.com to see more of Ed’s work. --Raina McLeod

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.
