Every year, New Times‘ MasterMind Awards reward Miami’s best creative talent with cash grants and citywide exposure.
Artopia gives MasterMind winners and finalists a platform to show their work to a broader audience — and gives you, the reader, the opportunity to shmooze with Miami’s up-and-coming talent. This year’s Carnival-inspired theme will bring together artists, musicians, fashion designers, culinary masters, and cocktail creators, all driven to fete Miami’s weird and wonderful creative culture.
The 2017 edition will take over the Coral Gables Museum Thursday, March 2, 2017, with a talented cast of local artists and creatives that includes Cuban American artist Rei Ramierez, interpretive artist Max Lazega, brushless artist Melinda Gallop, and graffiti artist Rey Nas. Even more creatives will be announced in the coming weeks.
In addition to meeting a talented slate of MasterMind finalists, attendees can look forward to performances by Angels Entertainment and Native American Powwow Dancers; an interactive digital graffiti wall; multimedia makeup artist Desiree Vazquez; music by DJ Surge; interactive tiles courtesy of 8Bit Lexicon; and artist Wen Ju.
