ArtCenter re-boots its New York-Miami affair, opening a new window into the future of this symbiotic tale of two cities.

Art Center Miami resurrected the New York/Miami affiliation, revealing the figurative fable between these two notoriously artistic cities. The Miami artists are Johnny Laderer, Gustavo Oviedo and Luis Pinto. The New York artists are Tyler Healy, Dean Levin, Evan Robarts and Kyle Yanagihara.
