Missing Art? New Exhibits and a Pop-Up Shop Open in Miami’s Design District

Jun 03, 2020 June 03, 2020

Let’s face it, for those of us who love art, checking out a new exhibit after staying home so long is as good as a perfect morning latte. It’s refreshing, invigorating, and definitely going to make your day. As Miami’s Design District reopened on the 20th of May, the style destination got itself a brand-new art collection under the direction of new curator Claire Breukel, who also curates the Craig Robins Collection. 

Here’s looking at all the exhibits on view in Miami’s Design District this summer:

3060 sq. ft.

By: Tom Scicluna

When: Through June 27
Where: Paradise Plaza 133

3060 sq. ft. By: Tom Scicluna

Miami-based conceptual artist Tom Scicluna is known for his focus on sculptural works using found materials. Represented by Nina Johnson Gallery, the celebrated artist is known for creative works that question the ideas of artistic control, display, function of the art, and distance between idea and reality, as well as the viewer and image.

This time, for his site-based intervention at Paradise Plaza, he has a special treat in store. The contemporary artist sourced and shipped a 36 x 85 feet vinyl billboard advertisement from an online used billboard website. So, the title 3060 sq. ft. is the actual, physical representation of the two-dimensional sculpture, whose contents were kept secret until installation.

Works from four Latin American sculptors - Verónica Vázquez, Pablo Rasgado, Artur Lescher, and Túlio Pinto - have been called in for an exhibit that reevaluates human understanding of the rules of space, time, and gravity. Each artist on the roster is known for signature works that are meant to redefine the way we comprehend the workings of physics. While Verónica Vázquez works with metal plates and iron to create large-scale works, Mexican artist Pablo Rasgado is known for transforming everyday materials into new abstractions. And, while Brazilian artist Artur Lescher is known for poetic sculptures, his peer Túlio Pinto uses industrial materials to convey his visual dialogue.

Miami Condos with Shabbat Elevators
Real Estate News Miami Condos with Shabbat Elevators
Last updated June 11, 2021. Whether you refer to it as the Sabbath, Shabbat, Shabbos, or by any other term, your religious commitment to observing a holy day of rest should not prevent you from enjoying a luxury condo lifestyle in the subtropical paradise that is Miami.  For this reason, a number of condo communities provide the convenience of a Shabbat or Sabbath elevator, which is a specially programmed elevator that stops automatically on every floor during the Jewish Sabbath, from sundown on Friday evening until sundown on Saturday of every week.  This service is provided in order to accommodate the Jewish religious law that prohibits religious observers from pushing buttons or operating machinery during the Sabbath. While Miami today is known as a particularly Jewish-friendly metropolis, Jews were not even allowed to enter Miami Beach Hotels until the late 1940s. But by the 1950s they began to lay down roots in Miami Beach and to impact the economy, politics, and social flavor...

Brickell Avenue Bridge Schedule, Traffic and Solutions -- All You Need To Know
Transportation Brickell Avenue Bridge Schedule, Traffic and Solutions -- All You Need To Know
Ever tried driving from Brickell to Downtown Miami for lunch? Most Miamians dread the thought of catching the dreaded Brickell Avenue bridge, a drawbridge that opens every hour or half-hour during non-curfew hours to allow river and traffic and boats to pass under.  * This article was updated on June 7, 2021 So what’s the problem? A big one! When the bridge opens, it ends up turning the city into a parking lot. With the last two building booms, there’s been a sudden surge in Downtown population since 2010 that has not stopped, and hence, denser traffic. And with Brickell now one of Miami’s hottest neighborhoods, serving as Miami’s vital financial hub, dense residential condo neighborhood and go-to place for nightlife, travel to and from Brickell and Downtown Miami is unavoidable.  This is why almost every second year, the FDOT faces requests to place restrictions on opening the bridge for maritime traffic during rush hour or extending curfew hours. However, listen to the marine...
