On October 5 and 6, 2016 Soho Beach House Miami’s popular “Artist In House” program - presented by Primary Projects - featured YoungArts master teacher Derrick Adams. The multidisciplinary New York-based artist’s most recent visit to Miami focused on inspiration, the fun in artmaking, and connecting artist and audience on a more intimate level.
For “Music Meets Art” on Friday Night, Adams invited members and guest to join him for a unique session of musical chairs, followed by a mashup of music and drawing where everyone came together to create a hybrid image made of individual sketches.
Saturday was all about masquerade. Inspired by Adams’ practice, which includes manipulation of structure and surface and explorations of self-image, members and guest joined the artist for mask-making with op-art materials in bold black and white patterns. The evening of the “unknown” continued in the Penthouse where guests disguised by their masks enjoyed cocktails and danced into the night.
