Art Blimps Over Miami

abmb_skywalkers.jpgIt's what I've always said Art Basel Miami Beach needed more of: blimps. And now they've got'em. It's almost enough to make me wish I wasn't going to be in Kyoto.

A beachside Blimp Parade with characters from artists I actually like, like Ara Peterson, Misaki Kawai, and others, is curated/organized by Friends With You, the Miami vinyl/naugahyde art collective whose Malfi dolls have tea parties with my daughter on a regular basis.

Alas, I'll be watching the proceedings on flickr.[1]

If you're free and want to wrangle a blimp Friday, Dec. 7th, 2pm, get in touch with the blimpfolks asap. Details are at supertouch.

[1] Then we'll reconvene here to talk about the differences between Arne Quinze's Burning Man-to-Basel publicity stunt for Lexus and an art event sponsored by Scion. It's not what kind of Toyota you drive that matters; it's who's driving.

Since 2001 here at, I've been blogging about the creative process—my own and those of people who interest me. That mostly involves filmmaking, art, writing, research, and the making thereof.

Many thanks to the Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Program for supporting that time.
