Lost at Sea

Downtown’s MIA Encore Art Exhibit goes inside a yacht


What do Picasso and Banksy have in common?

Revered as they both are, neither has shown his work at a floating gallery like next month's MIA Encore aboard the SeaFair.

Hop onboard this ridic luxury boat docked at Bayfront Park to check out both emerging and established contemporary artists' work, all in the name of helping launch the First Friday Downtown Art Walk.

Saunter through the interior of this ship-turned-gallery to witness modern art of all masses: mixed media, sculpture, photography, installation. You might even catch a glimpse of underwater photos taken at the bottom of the ocean aboard the sunken Vanderberg ship. 

Then take it to the top deck overlooking the skyline, where you'll mix and mingle with the artists while swigging back glasses of champagne during the ArtAfterHours cocktail cruise starting at 10p.

Or you can always wait till morning to get your Bloody Mary fix during their elaborate brunch with eggs, bacon, and all the fixings on the sky deck

Beat that, Samberg and T-Pain.
