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.

Flashback to 2016, and I, and all Miamians, were both surprised and excited to hear that nightlife impresario David Grutman – the man behind the likes of LIV, STORY and most recently, Komodo – was teaming up with Miami Design District’s Craig Robins and New York City's The Smile Cafe to open a casual café #atMDD. Fast-forward to January 2017, and it’s hard to tell if the line out its door will ever stop. OTL, which goes by the slogan “Everyone Welcome,” is a two-story space that’s part neighborhood hangout, part coffee shop and part creative space. But above all, it’s a laidback food spot with a small menu of well-made breakfast items, sandwiches, salads, toasts and pastries that have been calling me back since the day I tried it myself. And that was nearly a week ago.

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.
