We may not have Banksy's bus — yet — but Miami's art scene is one of the fastest-growing, with monthly art walks, graffiti'd walls, and high-ballers coming in December for the mecca of all art exhibits.
Before Art Basel's chaos come wintertime, make it a win-win at the Locust Projects Annual Smash & Grab, a combo raffle/art event featuring solid, want-to-take-home contemporary art.
That's right, it's a raffle.
The artists are taking a page out of the local nursing homes' book. Just like at the home, everyone's a winner of fine art: each raffle ticket guarantees a win.
While bumping elbows with graffiti artists and crafty enthusiasts, listen up for random drawings throughout the evening giving out TJ Ahearn’s provocative vintage album covers, Colby Bird’s offbeat brick lamp, and Domingo Castillo’s How To Steal Stuff From The Internet corrupted portable document file.
Then take your winnings to Seven Lounge for the afterparty for complimentary vodka-mixed cocktails.
There are no sore losers in this art scene.
