HOTBED 2013 is Thursday December 5


The annual outdoor art exhibition at CasaLin in Wynwood, a renown event on the ABMB VIP circuit, will host our HOTBED project on the morning of December 5th, a pivot point in the season’s pinnacle week.

The 2013 edition of HOTBED features three original performative installations conceived and produced by collaborative visual arts teams from Miami’s New World School of the Arts. Each team is a duo: a recent alumnus and a current BFA senior, together meeting the challenge of the theme, REVERENCE.

You can experience the one-time exhibition between 10am and noon at The Yard@CasaLin, 55 NW 30 Street, Wynwood, Miami.

Collector to Collector @ MOCA on Public TV


Wet Heat Project produced a Public TV program for Bonnie Clearwater just before her move from MOCA North Miami to becoming Director and Chief Curator at the Museum of Art | Fort Lauderdale.

The program presents lively and rich conversations with major art collectors that reveal unique histories, influences and decision-making behind some of the art world’s most extensive collections, and the unique people that assertively support art museums worldwide.

Collector to Collector was a live event in March of this year hosted by Bonnie Clearwater which was filmed at MOCA and condensed into the 2-part, 6-segment program airing on South Florida’s flagship Public TV station WPBT’s Channel 2 art loft this week and next week.
