Donna Karan promotes Haitian Artisans At Little Haiti Cultural Center in Miami

Discover Haiti Miami: Donna Karan Showcases Haitian Artisans At The Little Haiti Cultural Center (PHOTOS): ""A painting can say anything, but let's get it out there in the world where people buy T-shirts," Karan said at the opening of a Little Haiti Cultural Center exhibition of art, accessories and furnishings produced by artisans in Haiti and sold through Karan's Urban Zen Foundation.

It's no charity craft fair. The items artfully displayed in the Miami gallery would sell in any mainstream home furnishings store. What sets them apart is their origin: handmade in Haiti from stone, wood, metals and textiles sourced or repurposed in the Caribbean country."

Eve Sussman Video Work at the Bass

Eve Sussman's Stunning Video Work at the Bass - Page 1 - Arts - Miami - Miami New Times: "Isolated in a darkened room near the entrance of the museum's second-floor galleries, Sussman's evocative film places viewers squarely in the moment when Velázquez painted his immortalized scene. It offers a sensational behind-the-curtain peek at the daily trappings of royal life, with opulent costumes, sinuous choreography, and a shadowy atmosphere." (more at link above)


"Primary colors with glorious Miami Beach blue skies"

Carole Mallory: Pain and Gain Belongs to Michael Bay: "The look of this film is bold -- shout out primary colors with glorious Miami Beach blue skies on the horizon a result of the fine art direction by Sebastian Schroder of this handsome film. But it is the closing credits and accompanying music that cap off a totally enjoyable viewing like an exclamation point. Don't run out of the theatre and turn your evening into a near miss. This exciting movie is based on a true story from a magazine article by Pete Collins while the cartoon-like dialogue, hip in its Miami Beach trendy magnificence, was created by screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely."
