Downtown Hollywood’s art scene has been buzzing hard this year. Curious? Here’s your chance to scope it out…
An iPhoneography exhibit, Never, Neverland by Miami-based artist, Jaime Ferreyros, opens tomorrow night at Gallery 2014.
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.

Okay, so my boy AholSniffsGlue just introduced me to a semi-local duo, Feathermeal, for whom he just wrapped up the artwork for their first EP, The Great Destroyer. I must say these dudes made quiet the impression on me, not only for their musical instrumentations (composed of melodies and the elements they’ve listed for us above) but also for their super legit personas…
Every now and again I find myself longing to adventure, a getaway from the Miami madness. Some weekends I get on the road, sometimes on the A1A, and I head North with no particular destination in mind. These day trips have become my favorite way of exploring South Florida.
Word is that the Downtown Hollywood historic arts and entertainment district is transforming into a vibrant live music hot spot. This year, the City of Hollywood also initiated the Downtown Hollywood Mural Project to curate contemporary outdoor murals by some of our favorite local artist, including Luis Pinto and Jessy Nite, at key locations in Downtown Hollywood.
And so, my last day trip which had started off as a quest for bargain antiques, became a street art treasure hunt in Downtown Hollywood…

Fellow vinyl addict James Zabiela from the UK is in town and we’re giving you a chance to score a pair of free tickets to the show!
If you missed his set last time he was in our town, let us break it down for you in simple terms — On July 1st, 2011, Zabiela packed the house and tore up the dance floor at The Vagabond. He is fresh off his summer gigs at Space Ibiza for the We Love Music parties.
Tonight he’s back. Here’s your chance to catch up Miami style!
Dejha Carrington, local art, design and culture guru, turned us on to Downtown Hollywood’s budding art scene. Last month, the district launched the Downtown Hollywood Mural Project, a new curated outdoor mural program, with an inaugural jazz-inspired mural by Lebo.
Robin Van Arsdol, better known throughout the art world as RV, is exhibiting his original paintings and sculpture at Kill Your Idol. The show runs through August, giving you plenty of time to head over to South Beach to witness the work by one of the pioneers of the 1980′s New York City street art movement.
