Art and design have forged an alliance in the fashion capital of Bal Harbour. Visual synergy created by top brands, South Florida based artists, local galleries and museums happened last season at Bal Harbour Art Nights and is back this season - bigger and better!
During the 2011-2012 season, Bal Harbour Village, Bal Harbour Shops, The St. Regis and Art Nexus will host four collector worthy evenings, which will start on Thursday, November 3 at 6pm at the Bal Harbour Shops. Bal Harbour’s intention is to please the eyes and inspire the mind by creating a platform that celebrates the relationship between fashion and art. The Art Night events also embrace the high level art components present in South Florida through museum presentations, Miami-based artist installations, and innovative chats. Future Art Nights are scheduled for January 11, February 8 and March 29.
A few highlights of this first event:
-Bal Harbour Chat Series, Neiman Marcus (2nd floor): "Miami: A Cultural Chronicle" with Tony Goldman, developer and visionary. Tony Goldman is known for transforming declining historical districts into thriving, global destinations. He is the driving force behind the evolution of SoHo in New York City and South Beach and Wynwood in Miami (Interview by Nina Johnson-Milewski, Owner and Director, Gallery Diet)
-100% Capri will feature the work of Miami-based artist Michael Genovese, benefiting MAM (Miami Art Museum).
-Ellie Tahari will feature a Renato Freitas photography exhibition, benefiting Care Resource.
-Books & Books will celebrate artist Sheila Elias and her dynamic collection with the book Somewhere-Anywhere. The book highlights her collection of paintings, collages, sculptures, photographs and installations over the past three decades.
And much more with exhibitions throughout the iconic Bal Harbour Shops.
