So if you didn't attend any of the art fairs this past weekend, you missed out on plenty of visual stimulation. This year, Scope definitely was my favorite fair, not only because the work for sale was superb, but their commitment to inviting local artists and musicians to take part in the festivities is pretty refreshing. Most fair tend to forget that for the other 360 days they aren't here, Miami still has a pretty vibrant artistic community.
In their continued commitment to the local community, Scope invited Miami artistic collective FriendsWithYou to set up a lounge, complete with inflatable bounce house, for attendees to enjoy. Well, apparently for the last night, FriendsWithYou got Otto Von Schirach and friends to close out the exhibit with a (impromptu?) performance. Check out the video above, courtesy of Aiden Dillard, of the show at Scope.
