ArtSoBay Event Night

ArtSoBay Event NightSaturday, February 18, 6:30–10pm – Deering Estate at Cutler, 16701 SW 72 Avenue, Miami

Contemporary art exhibits, one-time only art performances and site-specific installations are certain to awaken one’s senses when ArtSoBay opens on Saturday, February18 at the Deering Estate at Cutler. Uniquely alternative experiences are created for the viewer when sound, taste, smell and touch are integrated into the artists’ messages. The unconventional day and evening art event is a highlight of the annual SoBay Festival of the Arts, a two-week celebration (Feb. 14-26) of visual, literary, and performing art collaborations. The evening also features on-going performance art: Contact with Rene Barge and the transformation of sound with crowd participation, Lucinda Linderman Excess Extravagance, Jason Hedges Vertical Spits and C.M. Clark presenting a poetry reading. There is an informal reception with an opportunity to meet all of the artists and curators. Proceeds from SoBay Festival of the Arts benefit the Deering Estate at Cutler for preservation, education and restoration of the historic estate. ArtSoBay Event Night runs from 6:30pm to10pm and there is no admission charge.
