Artopia, New Times' annual celebration of Miami's artistic scene, will take over the Coral Gables Museum this week with a gathering of art, music, and food.
Thursday, March 2, from 7 to 10 p.m., experience live performances by Angels Entertainment and Native American Powwow Dancers; an interactive digital graffiti wall; multimedia makeup artist Desiree Vazquez; music by DJ Surge; interactive tiles courtesy of 8bit Lexicon; and artist Wen Ju.
In addition, New Times' MasterMinds Awards will acknowledge three local creatives as winners of cash grants to further fund their passions.
And because even artists need fuel for their fire, Artopia offers delicious food and drinks. Check out bites from Philly Grub, Divino Ceviche, Los Ranchos, Sokai Sushi & Bar, and Plomo. In addition, Dunkin' Donuts will serve coffee and doughnuts, and Becks, Prescribed Spirits, and Sparkling Ice will provide refreshments.
Tickets to Artopia cost $25 for general admission and $45 for VIP, which include entry at 6 p.m. and access to the exclusive VIP lounge, offering a sponsored spirits bar, sponsored beer bar, and additional restaurant samplings.
New Times' readers can enjoy an exclusive two-for-one GA ticket offer by using promo code FLASHART. The offer is good only through today, Wednesday, March 1, at 10 p.m. To purchase tickets, visit newtimesartopia.com.
It's a delicious way to ease your South Beach Wine & Food Festival withdrawal.
