Meet the 2017 MasterMind Finalists

The MasterMind Awards submissions have been judged. The finalists have been chosen. Now it's time to reveal who will take home New Times' artist grants — and to party in the process. New Times' Artopia, presented by Miracle Mile Downtown Coral Gables, is your chance to mix, mingle, munch, move, and more. The event will feature a lineup filled with fun and interactive culture, from live music to art, performance, and beyond. This year's finalists produce work in a wide range of genres, addressing topics from feminism to Miami history and the challenges facing at-risk youth. There's just one thing these creatives have in common: They're all producing excellent work in South Florida.
