What would Miami Beach look like were it not for the efforts of the Miami Design Preservation League (MDPL)? We can only guess what kind of '80s architectural monstrosities we avoided by declaring our Art Deco buildings off limits for developers who would do away with them. The result has been the unique and beautifully-maintained streetscape of boutique hotels, shops and restaurants we have come to take for granted in South Beach. This weekend, the MDPL makes us reflect on the era that gave birth to some of the architectural gems that we pass every day with its annual Art Deco Weekend, taking place from Friday to Sunday on Ocean Drive. Here are the highlights: Fun and games What was it like to be an Art Deco kid? For one thing, paper dolls were all the rage. Board games taught you how to be high-stakes real estate speculators (Parker Brother dropped Monopoly in 1935, right in the midst of the Great Depression). Die-cast toy motorcycles and rockets helped kids to play out the plots from their favorite comic strips. Some of the toys that children of the Art Deco period coveted will be on display at an exhibit at the…

Get in bed with Flo Rida at the Great Grove Bed Race on Sunday, Nov. 3. He joins celebrity judges Mayor Thomas Regalado, Grammy Award-winning singer and Miami local Karina Iglesias of The Voice and Commissioner Marc Sarnoff, to be Grand Marshall of the mattress madness. For the uninitiated, the Great Grove Bed Race, which takes place on Bayshore Drive by Peacock Park, brings together five-person race teams plus their five-person pit crews for a mad dash down the road all in the name of charity. The 2013 competition will benefit Dress for Success Miami. The teams are challenged to create rolling beds that can pick up enough speed to dust the competition without tossing off the team member chosen to ride on top. The race isn't just about speed, though. Teams will also be awarded in categories like "Best Artistry," "Best Engineered," "Just Plain Funniest" and "Most Dressed For Success." The teams have been fundraising since the summer, the team who raised the most funds will get a one-foot head start. Entries in recent years have depicted everything from a bed-ridden President Obama to last year's top prizewinner, a Victorian themed bed by The Olfactory Company complete with white…
At Box Park, chef Matt Hinckley cooks exotic proteins like alligator, wild boar, and Asian snakehead fish. But on October 28, the chef will offer a different style of cookery. Hinckley will co-host a vegan dinner with Love & Vegetables' Keith Kalmanowicz and Avril Johnnidis. Proceeds of the event will benefit Love & Vegetables' mission of providing healthy, pay-what-you-can meals to the community.   This isn't the first time Hinckley and Kalmanowicz collaborate in the kitchen. "I've worked alongside Keith in the trenches of the Genuine Hospitality Group and he has tremendous talent and dedication to his craft. I'm excited to share kitchen space again," said Hinckley. The chef has supported Love & Vegetables since its inception. When Kalmanwoicz was just getting started with his community cafe, Hinckley let him borrow equipment and supplies.   "Matt's a badass," said Kalmanowicz. "He believed in me when others thought I was crazy. He loaned countless kitchen supplies when I was cooking for 100 people with one pot on a four-burner stove with only one 4 quart to store it all in." The collaboration will celebrate this relationship. The six-course plant-based meal will be modeled after Box Park's "Just Send Food" option --…

Red Bull Flugtag returns to Bayfront Park on Sept. 21 offering a day-long parade of insane teams of daredevils and inventors who fearlessly (read: foolishly) throw themselves off of a 30-foot platform into the waters of Biscayne Bay in homemade flying devices that may or may not take flight. Judging the event this year is a team of daredevils in different fields: Cliff diver Steven Lobue; skydiver Amy Chmelecki; Miami's own DJ Irie; wakeboarder Parks Bonifay; Telemundo personality Mirella Grisales and Miami Herald sports guru Dan LeBatard. This year's spectacle, which will be taking place in four other cities simultaneously, is free to watch and will feature 27 motley crews of misfits and weirdos. The team that gets their craft to fly the farthest wins the chance to skydive with the Red Bull Air Force, runners up get VIP access to Red Bull events.   Here are some of the teams to look out for. University of Miami ASME Miami, Florida Take everything we know about human flight and put it in reverse and you have the idea behind Enalpria: The Backwards Airplane. Though the concept may sound illogical, this team is comprised of University of Miami engineering students, so…

For little girls, seeing their favorite Disney princesses skate around on the ice is definitely exciting, but it's also a dream come true for many of the performers from "Disney On Ice." The show - which hits the BB&T Center in Sunrise from Sept. 19-22, and downtown Miami's AmericanAirlines Arena from Sept 25-29 as part of its "Princesses & Heroes" tour – features many beloved characters from popular Disney films, including princesses Jasmine, Ariel, Tiana, Cinderella and many more.   As your little one's eyes light up while taking in the magic of the show, it might not occur to you that most of the skaters are feeling the same thing, having grown up huge fans of all the Disney movies and characters. "So many of the princesses in this show are my favorites, so it's really fun to sometimes skate those roles and hear the music every day," says Carlina Ramirez, a 23-year-old skater from Brooklyn who's particularly fond of "Aladdin" and "Beauty and the Beast." "This is a great show for little girls and boys, and even older folks, because we have a lot of high-flying, acrobat tricks, and you get to see some things that you normally…

The Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) hosts its annual Optic Nerve Video Festival on Aug. 23 which provides a glimpse at new and innovative ways artists are using moving images to create provocative works of art. The festival is the result of an open call to video artists, the 14 finalists represent five percent of the total entries and the winners, who will be announced at the screenings on Aug. 23, will have their works added to the MOCA's permanent collection.   MOCA has hosted Optic Nerve for 15 seasons, a testimony to the museum's role as a proponent of video as a medium. Last year during Art Basel MOCA presented a collection of celebrated video artist Bill Viola's preeminent works, the largest exhibition of its kind since his Whitney retrospective in 1997. Friday's screenings will be preceeded by a discussion between MOCA's new curator Alex Gartenfeld and Aram Moshayedi, curator of the Hammer Museum who has written extensively about artists that work at the intersection between video and art.   Video art can be perplexing; works often undermine the conventional use of moving images - to inform or entertain - forcing viewers into deeper cogitation. Optic Nerve finalists' works…

Marty McFly. Now there's a guy who could hoverboard. Although, technically, the thing was totally useless over water. Someone should've taken a couple of pointers from these guys... Get airborne with Flyboard305, a new outfit out of the Grove that'll have you surfing the skies on a water-propelled board, taking reservations now. You're probably already familiar with those water-powered jetpacks you strap on your back. Basically, that's the idea here. Except, well, the jetpacks are located under your feet. See, what you've got is a wakeboard with two water-propelled jets. And the force of those jets is what sends you careening 45 feet into the air. Kind of like the Silver Surfer. Without the time travel. (Sorry.) When you're ready to catch some air, grab a friend and head to the Grove. You'll meet up with your instructor and learn basic stuff like steering the controls, free flight and, you know, the importance of how to land. Upright. Then, it's showtime. You'll head into the middle of the water on a jet ski, strap on your board and start executing all kinds of aerial maneuvers. Flips. Barrel rolls. Nosedives. You can even take the board underwater. Might as well get…
The de la Cruz Collection will be hosting a series of art workshops directed at elementary middle and high school school students and their teachers. Gallery owner Rosa de la Cruz says the workshops are an important part of the collection's educational programs not only because they are free and open to the public, but because they teach children about the concepts behind art. "It's important to teach them not just the technique but also the concept. Concept and technique have to go together," de la Cruz says. For example, in the Castoffs - Sculptures and Found Art Objects Workshops, students will learn more about the concept of "found object", a form of art that was championed by artist Marcel Duchamp (whose work has been described as Dadaist and surrealist) that describes art that utilizes ordinary objects. Students will create "sculptures" using everyday objects like old clothing and stuffed animals; they then will modify these objects to suit their artistic vision. The Shadow Play workshop will teach children about the elements of film using shadow puppets. The students will design their characters, write the script, create the storyboard, direct the light and sound design and even score the film, all…
The New World Center will receive the Colombian Youth Philharmonic on Friday, July 26 in a free performance that will feature piano soloist Eduardo Rojas. The program, under the baton of Alejandro Posada, will include four orchestral pieces: Prelude and Toccatta Tiento del primer tono y batalla imperial by Cristobal Halffter; Piano Concerto No. 2 in C minor, Op. 18 by Sergei Rachmaninoff; the famed Firebird Suite by Igor Stravinsky; and Pines of Rome by Ottorino Respighi.   The Colombian Youth Philharmonic was established in 2010 to provide kids from all over Colombia the opportunity to bring classical music to a new generation. Executive Director Helena Barreto Reyes is proud of the Philharmonic's success in bringing the classics to the masses. "I believe we have helped elevate Colombia's social and cultural standing, and have provided scores of people, from all walks of life, with access to live classical music."   Much like the New World Symphony which calls the New World Center home, the Philharmonic is composed of the best and the brightest classical musicians in Colombia ages 16 through 24 who pass the rigorous audition process. The show will mark the first time a Latin American orchestra plays at…
