Smash and Grab 2018

Annual Art Raffle Fundraiser

There is no other fundraiser quite like this one. The lively event revolves around a raffle, for which over one hundred local, national and international artists have donated artwork — enough so that each raffle ticket is guaranteed to win an artwork. Tickets are drawn at random during the party, with the winner getting their choice of artwork (i.e, first called gets first pick, and so on). The result is a fun way to place artwork into collections, build visibility for artists, connect with Miami’s art community, and support Locust Projects.

When: Saturday, October 13, 2018, 6:30 – 9:30pm

Ticket price includes fabulous food by Shake ShackHarry's Pizzeria and 222 Taco, and bar by Bacardi.

Music provided by The Rhythm Foundation DJs Par, Benton, and Ricardo.

During her tenure with the museum, Zuckerman has boosted its stature from local art gallery to internationally-recognized institution.

To date at the museum, she has curated 100+ exhibitions, including traveling exhibitions to 15 venues across North America. She established the Aspen Art Press, which has produced exhibition catalogues distributed nationally and internationally. Previously, Zuckerman served as chair of the art curatorial department at the University of California, Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive.

Art21: Johannesburg (runtime 55 mins.) features Locust Projects alumni, Nicholas Hlobo, a performance artist and sculptor, as well as photographers David Goldblatt and Zanele Muholi and muralist Robin Rhode--all artists living and working in post-apartheid South Africa. The film focuses on how they are using their work to empower and amplify the voices of marginalized communities in South Africa, mining their own histories to look forward to an empowered future for their communities.
