Andy Warhol was onto something. Prescient to the weight that celebrity, fame and commerce would hold in popular culture, Warhol is today regarded as one of the most influential artists of the last century. Not only is he the poster-child of the popular American Dream, he designed and produced the actual posters that would, in time, play a part in reshaping what “the Dream” looked like. It’s no wonder that, in a collaborative traveling exhibition titled Letters to Andy Warhol, The Andy Warhol Museum has teamed up with Cadillac—the all-American brand of social mobility. Showcasing the artist’s intimate connection with both art and the artifact, this multimedia show celebrates his legacy and cultural impact.
Maestro Eduardo Marturet of the Miami Symphony Orchestra (MISO) once said that "ultimately MISO belongs to the community, and our job is to raise the artistic level each and every year.” In its latest pop-up series the internationally respected conductor and professional symphony are keeping their promise with free open-air concerts in the heart of the Miami Design District. Mark your calendars for the next event on Friday, January 27, and prepare for an evening of discovery along with some of the greatest classical masters of all-time.
In a final hurrah at the landmark Moore Building, the Institute of Contemporary Art Miami has organized an ambitious exhibition by German artist Thomas Bayrle. “One Day on Success Street” offers the ultimate farewell as the museum looks toward opening its permanent space in late 2017.
