Miami has a new up-and-coming cultural epicenter: the Miami Arts and Entertainment District or A&E District. Since its recent inception, the developing neighborhood has hit the ground running with a constant stream of arts, music, and nightlife programming that put our packed social calendars to shame. This past weekend, the A&E District hosted an event called "A Blank Canvas", a 90-minute art battle produced by Miami's Independent Thinkers (MIT). We stopped by in our Perrier capacity to cover the scene and snap some photos of Miami's killer style.
The event was fun, engaging, and made us proud to be Miami locals. On par with the A&E District and MIT's missions, "A Blank Canvas" promoted local artists and banded the Miami community together to choose the battle champion. And, Miami's artists really stepped up to the plate. Everyone from DJ Patrick Walsh and MC Komakozie to the four competing artists absolutely killed it. A special congratulations to Jenny Perez who the crowd crowned as the night's winning artist. Read the excerpt and click on the photo for the full Perrier feature.
