Recently, yours truly, Orlando Vega, founded Congreso Cubano, now a popular latin pop-up restaurant in New Orleans. I wanna share a recipe with you that my partner in crime, Rick Ostry, and I have been serving up. As a Miami native, it reminds me particularly of home because it includes so many of my favorite ingredients. It’s basically a layer-cake of savory Latin goodness with influences from many places. I highly recommend making it in bulk for large parties as its an affordable dish to scale up and its the holidays so why not share? One note, get started on this dish early!
Here are our picks of projects and exhibits happening during Miami Art Week. We’ve listed them by neighborhood so that you can plan your visits to the galleries and spaces accordingly. We hope this saves you some time driving around town, and gives you more time for ART! With so many sick parties going down, you may have forgotten, but that’s what it’s all about, after all! There’s a shit ton of dope art being showcased and we get new projects sent to us every day. That being said, we’ll be updating this list!
Painters have been obsessed with death since the very first artist took the very first breath. (Pretty much everyone else has too, but that’s another story.) But while successive generations of Futilists might’ve chosen to speculate on the finality of it all, the more compelling creatives concern themselves with what happens on the way to The Final Frontier. That of course means life. It also means living. And the lovely decay inherent in the day-to-day.
The local art scene, in the geographically clustered area of South Florida, took slightly longer to make it into the mainstream. Having finally done so, a light is shone on the underground talent that worked hard for years to get the scene to where it is. It also means that events are spreading throughout South Florida along with growing excitement for the arts.
