Locust Roundtable: Cara Despain

At those moments when contemporary art talks become insular, impossibly esoteric, or drift into territory no one knows much about, maybe it’s best to call a life-line. Whether sought out or entirely unsolicited, fathers often offer their two-cents to their adult children. This might be embarrassing, hilarious, right on, or right off. What might happen if a Roundtable discussion concerning a specific topic in contemporary art were extended to an exterior panel of participant’s Dads? Inevitably this will change the course of the conversation, encourage insight from other fields, and expose familial dialogue.

End: August 28, 2014 8:30 pm
Venue: Locust Projects
Address:

Locust Roundtable: Elizabeth Shannon

Miami has institutions offering various types of arts education and training, yet there seems to be a perceived ‘lack’ in terms of certain types of provision. Does this ‘lack’ actually exist, and if so, how is it best addressed? Could training via alternative educational models be just as, if not more, effective than that provided by more traditional institutions?

End: September 2, 2014 8:30 pm
Venue: Locust Projects

Smash & Grab Fundraiser

There is no other fundraiser quite like this one. The event revolves around a raffle , for which over one hundred local, national and international artists have donated artwork — enough so that each raffle ticket is guaranteed to win an artwork. Tickets are drawn at random during the party, with the winner getting their choice of artwork (i.e, first called gets first pick, and so on). The result is a fun way to place artwork into collections, connect with Miami’s art community, and support Locust Projects.

Start: October 25, 2014 6:30 pm
End: October 25, 2014 9:30 pm
Venue: Locust Projects
Address:
3852 North Miami Avenue, Miami, FL, 33186, United States
