MUSEUMS IN MIAMI
“I believe people of success should give back and I think that’s what Jorge is doing,” Podhurst said. “To me, this is the American dream in action.”
Joining the ranks of major givers in Miami, developer Jorge Pérez has pledged to donate $35 million in cash and art from his personal collection to the new Miami Art Museum, which will bear his name when it opens in two years. The donation includes $5 million that Pérez has already pledged and partially paid; an additional $15 million for the capital campaign and $15 million worth of Latin American art to be chosen by the museum.
A $35 million gift from billionaire entrepreneur Phillip Frost and his wife, Patricia, will see the Miami Science Museum renamed the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science when its new building opens in 2014. The couple also gave a $33 million naming gift to the Frost School of Music at the University of Miami in 2003 and a $2 million naming gift to the Frost Museum of Art at Florida International University in 2002.

VIDAL SASSOON SOMERSET HOUSE
A great new haircut can undoubtedly revolutionise your life, so the Vidal Sassoon exhibition at Somerset House isn’t quite as grandiosely titled as it might at first appear. And Sassoon, who died in May, really did make a difference. Photography, artwork and film trace a trajectory from childhood adversity to a CBE for services to British hairdressing. Sassoon was responsible for the seismic ’60s shift that saw the sharp, geometric bob give the elbow to soft ’50s fluff – and in the process, freed women from the tedious nightly ritual of putting rollers in. The precision of Sassoon’s helmet-head style didn’t suit everyone who embraced it, but it definitely looked fab on that other seminal ’60s figure, fashion designer Mary Quant, and was exactly right with the clean lines of her clothes. Together, Quant and Sassoon defined a fashion moment.

“Religion is for people that don’t want to go to hell. Spirituality is for those of us that have been there.”
There is no better saying that captures the emotion of Stephanie Hirsch’s artwork.
Her work delves into the deeper or double meaning of words and sayings with both humor and enlightenment. “Initially, sayings can be static,” Stephanie says, “but once we apply our life experiences they can have infinite meanings.”
To convey her messages, she bridges the gap between fashion and art by utilizing beads and embroidery, which give her artwork a three-dimensional depth. The metallic sheen of the medium also serves to remind us that the mantras can shine a positive light on our inner struggles, both literally and figuratively.
by Stephanie Hirsch
Stephanie Hirsch is an Artist, Entrepreneur, Designer and Author.
Stephanie Hirsch appropriates once iconoclastic images that have become somewhat commonplace fashion logos and re-infuses them with the anarchistic spirit from whence they came. Through her use of beads, sequins and embroidery, Hirsch’s canvases are literally ‘illuminated’ with words of enlightenment and hope. Her simple text and quips often cause the viewer to question their moral standings and beliefs, all the while offering aesthetically charged images that are simultaneously foreign and familiar.
Hirsch states, “Mental and physical blockages in life are often self- inflicted, both literally and figuratively. I explore my journey through life as a quest to uncover the truth around me and to express my position through the multifaceted meanings inherent to the words we use and actions we do.”
Hirsch had her first solo show at The Lyons Wier Gallery Project Space in Nov 2011. Her work was most recently chosen by Mercedes Benz to be their featured artist during Fashion Week in their VIP lounge at Lincoln Center Feb 2012.
In 1996 she created the inca resort lifestyle brand. The boutique design house featured collections of luxury swim and resort wear. Entirely self-taught, Stephanie’s designs have been praised for her unparalleled attention to detail along with its flattering and superior fit, and it has also brought her wide acclaim and international recognition as a fashion designer.
Following the birth of her son Hunter, her journey as a mother led her to write the book Mother Nurture: Life Lessons from America’s Best and Brightest. The book is a conclusion of her interviews with the mothers of 52 highly successful people around the world and was published in 2008 by Harper Collins.
Stephanie has also collaborated with the premier indoor cycling studios SoulCycle. In bringing her design expertise and shared vision to reinvigorate the soul, she created their fitness line of comfortable yet stylish cycling apparel.
She resides in New York and Bridgehampton with her husband and two young boys.

Aficionados of the acclaimed and equally flamboyant surrealist artist Salvador Dali will, for the first time in South Florida, have an extraordinary opportunity to view an extensive collection of work, Wednesday, March 7 through Sunday, March 11 when DALI MIAMI will bring more than 200 works of his expansive artistic repertoire to the Design District’s iconic Moore Building.
DALI MIAMI is being produced by Nick Betancourt and Michael Rosen, president and CEO of Colored Thumb, a driving force behind many of the area’s top art exhibits including Art Basel, Art Expo, and RedDot Fair. Curator of the show is Reed V. Horth President and curator of Robin Rile Fine Art, a specialist in Dali’s prodigious output, who will be providing the original paintings, drawings, lithographs, photographs and marquis sculptures from the master, valued at approximately $8 million. Among these treasures will be Dali’s seminal bronze “Venus de Milo with Drawers” (1964- 114cm), the gouache original “Spring Rain” (1949), the full set of “Dix Recette d’Immoralité” (1973), the rare original intaglio “The Grasshopper Child” (1934), and his Daum glass masterpiece “Montre Molle” (1971), depicting his quintessential melting clock. Taking his vision for a provocative exhibit one step further, Rosen has arranged for a continuous showing of the 1929 film, “Un Chien Andalou,” the iconic 17-minute French surrealist film in which Dali collaborated with friend and director Luis Buñuel. This graphic work explores the destructive elements of the psyche. The film clearly expresses pure surrealism and its relationship to the unconscious. Dali Miami has also secured celebrity chef Adrianne Calvo for the opening night reception who will recreate recipes inspired by Dali’s Cook Book. Since opening “Chef Adrianne’s Vineyard and Wine Bar in South West Miami, Calvo appears on The Food Networks “Chopped” and NBC’s ‘South Florida Today”, among other projects, Calvo is the author of a cookbook collection, “Maximum Flavor,” has for several years participated in the South Beach Food and Wine Festival and has been featured on The Food Network’s original series, “Chopped.” DALI MIAMI will be open to the public Wednesday, March 7 through Sunday, March 11 at The Moore Building. General Admission is $ 25 and VIP tickets are $90 with.by Maryanne Salvat

3 first Photos by Adriana Sassoon
The Wynwood Art Fair is an opportunity to see and experience art first hand like never before. Don’t just see art – be it – at the Wynwood Art Fair!
Virtually every form of artistic medium – visual, sound, movement, video, sculpture, installation, conceptual, music and performance – will invite participation by fair goers to create a spontaneous “happening” of “live” works of art, shaped as much by the audience as the artists.
The Wynwood Art Fair will feature street art performances and working “artist studios,” along side a diverse array of contemporary art galleries, art exhibitions, live music, and a taste of the area’s distinctive flavors and urban culture

Tatiana Suarez (b. 1983) is a Brooklyn-based Miami native. Her charming style is distinctive — first, the trademark eyes that draw the viewer into a beautiful and surreal world. Suarez takes full advantage of the oil paint’s ability to create creamy, soft images on canvas. Rich with symbols that stem from her Brazilian and El Salvadorian heritage, subjects appear as if they are under water, frozen in lovely stillness. The doe-eyed figures look childlike, but also exude sexual overtones, ornamented with plants, insects and other unsettling accompaniments. Beauty is presented concurrently with exotic — even creepy — creatures to create enchanted narratives
*Tatiana is also the daughter of my friend Fatima Suarez .
VIDAL SASSOON THE MOVIE
Mr. Sassoon of course changed the world with a pair of scissors.
Vidal Sassoon is more than just a hairdresser-he’s a rock star, an artist, a craftsman who “changed the world with a pair of scissors.” With the geometric, Bauhaus-inspired hairdos he pioneered in the 1960s and his “wash and wear” philosophy that liberated generations of women from the tyranny of the salon, Sassoon revolutionized the art of hairstyling and left an indelible mark on popular culture. This documentary traces with visual gusto the life of a self-made man whose passion and perseverance took him from a Jewish orphanage in London to the absolute pinnacle of his craft.
