Miami Grand Prix Returns to Miami in 2015 (view race course map)

It hasn’t been since 2003 that Formula 1 racing was part of an annual event in Miami. It was called the Miami Grand Prix. Remember that? People would crowd up the metromover in downtown to get free vantage points of the sports cars whisking by. The atmosphere was electric. (remember that word) But then the Homestead Speedway was built and so went the excitement of race cars in Downtown Miami. Yesterday at a ceremony at the Perez Art Museum, Mayor Tomas Ragalado announced that Sports Car Racing will return to the streets of Downtown Miami. This time not Formula 1 but Formula E. The newly electric race car circuit being promoted by Fia Formula e Racing, will once again bring car racing to the streets of Miami. This time the Miami ePrix. Mark your calendars for March 14 2015.

Beautiful Rainbow Hallway at Miami International Airport

Rainbow Hallway at Miami International Airport

Finally made it to this one of a kind work of art by artist Christopher Janney. Being that I am an Instagram fanatic, I have been dying to add a pic of this location to my gallery on Instagram. But it is not as easy as it seems. The lighting for this picture has to be perfect. Weather must be clear, as any increase in cloud coverage will ruin the effort of going there. Also timing has to be perfect. The multicolored diamond-shaped stained glasses all face west. A 4pm to 6pm arrival is ideal. So  yesterday was a perfect clear blue sky in Miami and I took advantage of it. We parked in the center parking garage at MIA. After quickly asking for the location of this piece we were happily surprised to find out that it was just an elevator ride to the 3rd floor of the parking garage. As soon as we arrive the colorful rays welcomed us. It really lives up to what it looks like in pictures and more. Art that speaks to the masses is my favorite. This public art by Christopher Janney is powerful enough to cause busy passengers to pause for a least a second to experience something unique and routine breaking in their busy lives. Here are some pictures from my trip to Christopher Janney’s art at Miami International Airport.

Dwayne Wade’s Makes Art, Like with Paint

Dwayne Wade’s art can now be seen at Brisky Gallery in Miami Wynwood District. Part of the #ArtOfBasketBall Series. On display at Brisky is an original 46″ x 36″ inch abstract work of art painted on a slab of the 2012 NBA All Star court. Miami Heat’s Dwayne Wade took to what he knows best, basketball, as his dribbling skills came in handy to create the one of a kind splatter marks and intuitive impressions.
