Friday, April 1 from 8:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. the Bass Museum of Art in Miami Beach celebrates another installment of their monthly happy hour “beats after sunset @ the bass.” Launched earlier this year, the successful happy hour takes place at the museum’s terrace and attracts art and music hipsters. Scheduled on the first Friday of every month, the event serves complimentary specialty cocktails generously sponsored by Herradura Tequila. Pabst Blue Ribbon beer and Vitamin Water are also plentiful. Beats will be provided by DJ Yanni Difranco.
This week’s beats after sunset @ the bass will also serve as the opening reception for the museum’s latest exhibit, Come Together: Frances Trombly and Leyden Rodriguez-Casanova.
Now through June 19, 2011
Come Together: Frances Trombly and Leyden Rodriguez-Casanova
The Bass Museum of Art will exhibit the work of Frances Trombly and Leyden Rodriguez-Casanova, two prolific Miami artists who also happen to be married. Both artists will create intriguing installations inspired by everyday objects. Trombly’s sculptures of mops, blank canvases and painters’ drop cloths fool the eye; these things appear to be mass-produced, but in fact they have been meticulously hand-stitched, crocheted and embroidered. Rodriquez-Casanova works with home-decorating items in an attempt to deconstruct the domestic environment. His installation will feature a section of ceiling, vertical blinds and a chandelier, skewed at an angle. In a third installation the couple will combine their efforts merging the hand-made and mass produced, using contrasting elements that are either organically soft or rigidly structured.
Members: free, non-members: $8 (cost of museum admission)
