This year, our dream of having a white Christmas is finally a reality! 243 years after the first recorded snowfall in Miami in 1774, winter has come to Miami again in the form of “White Rain” — Charlap, Hyman & Herrero’s holiday commission in the Miami Design District. The neighborhood is transformed into a high fashion winter wonderland, courtesy of the whimsical and humorous installation.

Miami is alive with events, concerts, exhibitions and all the good stuff that comes with the cooler September air.  And while most locals have spent the past couple months looking for shade, it’s time to re-emerge from hibernation for the premiere edition of Miami Design District’s Day Into Night music event. 

Premiering this August at Palm Court is the Reel Creative Cinema film festival, a thoughtful selection of feature-length and short films chosen by locals who have been vital to the growth of the Miami Design District.  There are few better ways to build community than to collaborate with neighbors and stage a meeting of the minds around art, design, fashion and food.

The iconic LOVE sculpture by Robert Indiana is almost as complex as the real thing.  One of the most recognizable modern-day images this four-letter word with a forward-leaning “O” captures an important time during the Pop Art movement.  Originally commissioned in 1965 by the Museum of Modern Art for its annual holiday card, LOVE has since appeared in prints, sculptures, banners, t-shirts and so much more.  From the first “Love” stamp printed by the U.S. Postal Service in 1973 to the massive statue at Sixth Avenue and 55th Street in New York, many have argued that the popularity and widespread appropriation of Indiana’s design was partially responsible for driving the artist to retreat to the island of Vilhaven, Maine.
