BARRY FELLMAN’S MIAMI CREATIVE:

A DECADE OF TRANSFORMATION

On view in our gallery through Jan. 2nd


About the Exhibition:

Photographs from Barry Fellman’s coffee table book Miami Creative: A Decade of Transformation bring the energy and drive of Miami’s creative community to Books and Books’ Coral Gables gallery for the month of December. A new vision for Wynwood’s blank urban canvas, charged by artists, social entrepreneurs and civic innovators, launches Fellman’s ten-year journey. The story expands into a sweeping culture shift throughout the city – the wide ranging movement dubbed Miami Creative, supported by major initiatives and investments in the arts from government, foundations, private individuals and local business.

The book includes over 200 dazzling images of our major cultural institutions and pivotal moments in the City’s history: Opening days at Frost Science Museum, PAMM, O-Cinema, ICA, Wynwood Yard and Art Basel, and the emergence of Wynwood’s outdoor murals; public activations like King Mango Strut and the Science March, all reflecting the brilliance of Miami’s indelible light and colors.

Fellman’s immediate style makes you part of the experience, breaking the barriers between observer and participant. His unorthodox angles pull you in and provoke you to consider the familiar anew. These vivid images give you a front row seat to iconic views and immersive experiences of the New Miami. A Miami that has matured from being a teenager enthralled with celebrity and nightlife, to an adulthood defined by a sense of pride and community in the cultural arts – A Miami that has become a top destination for visitors worldwide and a creative class that is reinventing the city.
