Frost Museum New On-line Exhibition
The Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum at Florida International University will launch its first on-line exhibition and project space and host an introductory panel discussion for the project on Wednesday, April 3, 2013, from 5 pm-6 pm. Along with the panel, a reception will usher in The Drawing Project; What is line and how does it travel through space. This exhibition/project space will be live through September 3rd 2013, and the panel and reception are open to the public and free of charge.
The act of drawing is quite possibly the oldest form of art. Through the millennia, it has shifted shapes with cultural changes and innovations, even taking on the form of written language as pictographs, cuneiform, and hieroglyphs turned into written words and binary code. This project responds directly to the notion that a drawing is not only an object, but an action as well: the trace of a point in motion. This definition and the constantly shifting boundaries of space are what the project is seeking to respond to.
The Drawing Project at the Frost Art Museum is a collaborative investigation curated by artist/educator and FIU graduate Emmy Mathis. Frost Museum of Art, at FIU, 10975 SW 17th Street, West Miami
Mia Sea Fair Art Exhibition
Miami Sea Fair is back next April 4th 2013 at Bayfront Park in Downtown Miami. SeaFair is the world's first mobile mega yacht venue and one of the ten largest privately owned yacht in the United States.
Ground breaking in scale, ingenuity and style, the yacht - which remains dockside during each event pairs international fine art, jewelry and collectibles with harbor view dining and special events in cities along the eastern seaboard. The $40M purpose built yacht was designed by internationally acclaimed yacht designer Luis De Basto. It is the largest ART ship built for commercial operation in the Intracoastal Waterway and requires a draft of only 6.5 feet allowing it to dock at small yacht facilities in central city locations rather than use commercial ports.
Deck One features a formal entry, ten individual exhibit spaces and a coffee bar. Deck Two features twelve exhibit spaces and the Luxe Lounge, an open-air champagne and caviar lounge on the aft deck. Deck Three features six exhibit spaces and Sapore’, and a formal glass-walled restaurant.

Cruz Diez Public Crosswalk in Wynwood
Residents and visitors of Wynwood can enjoy the neighborhood’s first permanent artistic crosswalk inaugurated this month of March. A work aimed to transform the intersection of Northwest Second Avenue and 25th Street. The effort is part of the Miami Biennale’s Wynwood Ways, an initiative to make the neighborhood a more pedestrian-friendly cultural destination.
The crosswalk, dedicated to Wynwood visionary Tony Goldman, consists of a kinetic design by Carlos Cruz-Diez, which changes as the pedestrian is crossing. Cruz Diez's work can be seen on the walkways of the Marlins Stadium and outside the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. The abstract geometric design is donated by Cruz-Diez and is supported by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation Fund at The Miami Foundation.
