Friday, May 11, 6:30-10pm – The Colannade, 180 Aragon Avenue, Coral Gables
An art event and silent auction to benefit the March of Dimes and support their mission of education and advocacy to save the babies.
Paint the Town, the brainchild of Miami based artist Derek Wilson, will feature large-scale, outdoor roof-top paintings created on canvas specifically for businesses, as with Mia Cucina whose roof- top is in direct view from the Colonnadeâ€™s Pool Balcony. The work executed for the exhibit will reflect Wilsonâ€™s recent series Harrietâ€™s Secret, a body of work dedicated to his late motherâ€™s legacy of love. For more information on Harrietâ€™s Secret, please visit wilson-art.net.Â The exhibit will be followed by a reception and silent auction that will have a variety of items, including actual sections of the roof-top paintings, available for purchase. Proceeds from the auction will directly benefit the March of Dimes, Miami Dade and Monroe Division.
