Eleven local artists have been selected to participate in â€œThis Art is So Gay,â€ a visual art exhibition at the Miami Beach LGBT Visitor Center, sponsored by MetLife. The exhibition will kick off with an artistsâ€™ reception during Sleepless Night, November 5, from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., with the artists in attendance and all art will be offered for sale with proceeds benefitting the not-for-profit MDGLCC Foundation for its LGBT scholarship program. The reception and exhibit are free and open to the public with the exhibition running through December 5 during Art Basel. In addition to the visual art exhibition, the Sleepless Night kick-off reception will feature interactive â€œflash-mobâ€ hurricane parties in celebration of â€œCaptiva,â€ a new comedy that will be making its world premiere at the Adrienne Arsht Centerâ€™s Carnival Studio Theater. â€œCaptiva,â€ from 2011 Carbonell Award recipient Christopher Demos-Brown, explores what happens when a family is stranded together on that western Florida island during a hurricane and they are forced to face each other with honesty and bottles of wine. All events and the exhibition are FREE and open to the public. Parking: 12th Street Municipal Garage & Metered Street Parking.
