Law Office,
Pedro Vélez:
The Fountain of Youth


After months of rumors, it is with deep regret that
LOCUST PROJECTS announces that it will be taken over
by the Chicago-based culture raiders and full-time
party boys LAW OFFICE featuring Puerto Rican outlaw
Pedro Velez. 
LOCUST PROJECTS, which always prided itself in
being the last bastion standing against the forces of
LAW OFFICE, will turn its building over on January 11,
2003. This date will mark a difficult moment in the
history of LOCUST PROJECTS. 
After weeks of speculation the stage is set for
LAW OFFICE’S controversial exhibition “Fountain of
Youth.” This ruthless and politically incorrect
extravaganza will comment on colonization in
contemporary America and the “ground zero” role Miami
has had in our fucked up evolution. To help you
swallow their conceptualism with a smile, LAW OFFICE
and Pedro Velez will provide the right amount of
alcohol, Jason Vorhees, and peanut butter and jelly
sandwiches. 
In lieu of a press conference, LAW OFFICE
featuring Pedro Velez will hold a panel discussion
entitled “Artist as Curator” on January 11 @ 7p.m.
This event will be co-organized by the quickly
dwindling LOCUST PROJECTS management team and an
individual of whom next to nothing is known, except
that he goes by the alias Alfredo Triff.


LOCUST PROJECTS is sponsored, in part, by The Dade
Community Foundation with support of The Miami-Dade
County Department of Cultural Affairs, The Cultural
Affairs Council, The Mayor, and The Miami-Dade county
Board of County Commissioners
