In case you were worried that Miami’s art community was a little malnourished, this Saturday a wine and food festival will set up shop in the midst of the monthly melee that is Wynwood Art Walk to feed both bellies and souls with works of visual and edible art.
Miami Bacchanalia will occupy 31,000 sq ft of space to offer cuisine, an art auction and plenty of alcohol. All this lavish revelry will serve the greater good; a portion of the evening’s proceeds will go to the children and families of the Miami Children’s Hospital Foundation. But don’t let the do-gooder spirit ruin your debaucherous fun: The party will be stocked with a full bar for those who need liquid inspiration.
Event organizer David Sadkin, an Art Walk regular, saw the need to create a hub for Wynwood Art Walk. “We saw that everything was spread out and there was not one central place so we found this lot and had the idea to bring things together.”
The outdoor locale will host a fleet of food trucks and feature a wine tasting for revelers to really praise Bacchus – not a bad destination for art lovers who can actually pay for their own drinks. Also, on exhibit will be an extensive collection of works owned by artist Nelson Delgado, Jr. as well as works by students at Miami International University of Art & Design and New World School of the Arts.
Sadkin says he has the event locked down for the next two upcoming Art Walks, so maybe there’s a chance that Miami Bacchanalia will become a tentpole of the Wynwood arts scene.
