Miami, FL – June 23, 2016 – Beck‘s, the world’s most recognized German-style beer, returned to Miami to kick-off Beck’s Urban Canvas, a project that showcases emerging visual artists and aims to enrich local communities through artistic expression. The annual program provides artists a platform to showcase their stories and work to audiences they might not otherwise have access to, and supports the local community by fostering and strengthening its creative programs. The brand hosted a launch event in Little Haiti where five emerging artists identified by Beck’s showcased original works of art. The selected artists, Santiago Rubino, Christina Angelina, Juan Travieso, Leza One, and DJ Neff, were also asked to put their own distinctive style and twist on a Beck’s billboard – their take on what a Beck’s billboard could, or should, be and revealed these ‘remixed’ billboards at the event. The public can now vote for their favorite ‘remixed’ Beck’s billboard on BecksUrbanCanvas.com. The winning artwork will be used as the creative direction for the next Beck’s billboard campaign.
Guests enjoyed live music by Mr. Brown and Bedside as well as Beck’s beer and hors d’oeuvres by Chef Creole. Additionally, as part of Urban Canvas 2016, Beck’s will partner with the Rhythm Foundation to re-launch the recently defunded Big Night in Little Haiti event program later this year as an on-going annual series.

Miami, FL – December 3, 2015 – Pérez Art Museum Miami was transformed by PAMM Presents Dimensions by Devonté Hynes and Ryan McNamara. “Dimensions” was an interdisciplinary performance that spread across the museum’s expansive terrace and featured eight moving sculptural platforms holding live dancers and musicians. In a surprise finale, the platforms came together, like puzzle pieces, to reveal interwoven musical compositions and choreography. The performance was the result of the museum bringing Hynes and McNamara together for their annual Researcher-in-Residence program. As part of that program, they spent weeks exploring Miami and its diverse cultural history–the inspiration for “Dimensions.”
The evening began with a toast to artists who are currently on view at the museum, led by PAMM’s new director, Franklin Sirmans. Notable guests of the evening included singer Solange Knowles, gallerist Andrea Rosen, the Guggenheim’s JiaJia Fei, designer Mara Hoffman, editor Dorian Grinspan, musician Nelly Furtado, actress Arielle Kebbel, and R&B artist Miguel.

An artistic highlight of the show was a golden bamboo forest installation, which also served as a backdrop for the summer ’16 look book images.
