12/8 Young Collectors' Ice Cream Social | Get Tickets
At Superfine! we always like to keep things light, sweet, and refreshing.

Like ice cream.

On December 8th at 7pm, for the second year running we're welcoming Miami's young collector community (as well as all PAMM Contemporary level members) to spend an evening in dialogue about art...and ice Superfine! - The Fair during Miami Art Week. We're upping the ante this year by partnering with Time Out Miami to bring you oversized ice cream sandwiches from local favorite Wynwood Parlor.

As the cherry on top (...dare I??) we're helping you jump start your art collection. Beyond eating tasty local ice cream and jamming to sexy sax tunes by Leon's House of Sax, Ice Cream Social attendees will also be eligible to win a $500 artwork voucher by participating in our ART-stagram scavenger hunt challenge. At a fair where 70% of the works are priced accessibly from $100 to $5,000, five bills go a long way towards filling your walls with delicious, original art. Only 300 tickets are released for the Ice Cream Social and they always sell out - get yours early and don't miss out on this sweet opportunity to grow your collection!

Locust Projects: Support the Next Generation of Artists on Give Miami Day!

On Give Miami Day your donation to Locust Projects will impact the lives of 25 high school-age, aspiring artists from across Miami who are selected to participate in Locust Art Builders. For four weeks every summer, a new group of LAB students work under the mentorship of established contemporary visual artists to learn about the practical and creative aspects of mounting a public exhibition, which they will develop and produce in collaboration with their peers.

Tomorrow, November 16, every donation to Locust Projects will receive a bonus match as part of Give Miami Day a 24-hour giving campaign organized by The Miami FoundationPart of every donation on Give Miami Day helps us make Locust Art Builders possible.

This invaluable hands-on experience allows young artists to widen their perspectives, connect with other artists and arts professionals and gain insights into careers in the arts as they build an exhibition from scratch.

Here is how far the impact of your tax-deductible donation goes:

$25 pays for transportation to Locust for one student for one week

$50 buys artmaking materials and supplies for one student for one week

$100 goes toward paid internships for student LAB assistants and LAB videographer

$500 pays for one field trip to a local museum for a behind-the-scenes tour with insights from museum staff

$1,000 pays for one week of lunches for 25 students

Tomorrow, click here to donate and make art happen for the next generation of artists!
