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.
