Savvy art lovers flock to ArtCenter/South Florida’s winningART every
year, where collectors and partygoers in-the-know add to their collections with
the region’s most promising up-and-coming artists. Winners take all this year
at the new crowning event for winningART: the pARTy on Lincoln
Road, Saturday night March 16, 7:00-11:00 p.m. Proceeds help fund
ArtCenter’s mission of advancing contemporary visual arts and culture in South
Florida, providing affordable studios, programming and work space for
professional artists. ArtCenter/South Florida, the cultural epicenter of South
Beach's Lincoln Road, welcomes more than 100,000 visitors every year and has
been home to more than 1,000 resident artists since its founding in 1984.
This year’s winningART culminates with ArtCenter’s new pARTy on Lincoln
Road, featuring live entertainment from a specially curated group of
- The beautifully bizarre antics of CircX
- Renowned artist-designer and new ArtCenter resident artist Karelle Levy;
- Nu Flamenco, featuring Miami’s very own Niurca Marquez and
musician Jose Luis Rodriguez, direct from Spain
- DJ Mauricio Parra from MTV/Tr3s
The evening includes a digital scavenger hunt and a silent auction replete with
sexy travel getaways and more surprises.
If the secret to successful collecting is all about discovering new trends and
artists first, winningART’s pARTy is the perfect event to master this

This year proves to be no exception thanks to ArtCenter’s current roster, some

winningART was created in 2001 by ArtCenter’s community of
artists to honor the memory of one of their own, artist Michael Richards who
died during the September 11th attacks (the artist was in his New York
studio that morning, on the 92nd floor of the World Trade Center’s Lower
Manhattan Cultural Council galleries).
His friends at ArtCenter spearheaded the very first winningART event to
establish a fund in his name to support emerging visual artists. The ArtCenter
then adopted winningART as an annual fundraiser to benefit the ArtCenter and
All of the works donated by the resident artists are on
exhibit at ArtCenter’s Richard Shack Gallery at 800 Lincoln Road, starting
February 23rd and on view for the three weeks leading up to the pARTy on
Lincoln Road on March 16th.
The collection of works may also be viewed online at artcentersf.org/winningart.
