Of course everyone knows Art Basel by the goliath tents set up in Wynwood and on the beach, and the massive gallery and warehouse takeovers that draw most of the crowds. However the small, personal galleries – the ones that rule the day during the monthly Wynwood Art Walk – worked just as hard this year. One of the best as always was Atelier 1022.
Artist Yvonne Pfeiffer’s exhibit ‘Las Calacas Reinvented’ at the Brisky Gallery was a lovely evening of art with an introspective into the female emotion.

ArtCenter re-boots its New York-Miami affair, opening a new window into the future of this symbiotic tale of two cities. The new exhibition I-95 South features 3 artists from Miami, FL and 4 from New York City. Commonly known as New York City’s sixth borough, Miami was the ideal place to host this exhibition. 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.

Miami’s historic Freedom Tower, which was the original home of the Miami News and then a Cuban Refugee Center, was donated to Miami Dade College (MDC) in 2008. Since, the college has not only protected the iconic structure but through well curated exhibitions, MDC’s Museum & Galleries of Art + Design (MOAD) has also established the Freedom Tower as a cultural center for visual art and design, free and open to the public, for the entire community to enjoy. Ever since MDC’s Museum & Galleries of Art + Design opened its doors, the Freedom Tower has without a doubt become one of my favorite spots to visit when adventuring around town, hungry for art. This past weekend, I finally stumbled in to check out FLASHBACK: Miami 1980s, an exhibit by freelance photographer (y compatriota mia), Alexia Fodere.
The heart of the 1926 Security Building has been dramatically transformed into our new favorite exhibition space. Seemingly, Downtown Miami is where it’s at (ssshh don’t tell Wynwood).
