Art/Work Connections is a monthly series of seminars presented by Life Is Art featuring business professionals speaking on a variety of topics vital to the success of working artists. This month we are covering financial planning for artists. Because an artist’s income is not stable, it is important to manage money properly, in order to be able to keep up on bills and not be left out in the heat when sales are slow. We will break this down and make it easy for everyone!
Bedside is very excited to debut their live sexy dance sound at Miami’s premier weekly dance music party, Slap & Tickle! Join the duo as they perform their original production and favorite songs with live samples and trumpet!

Some things don’t need to be defined. Some aren’t meant to be in a box, held in proverbial captivity. They inherently defy a need for classification. BANKS makes music. Great music. Why not just stop there? Allow her to be a siren for a generation, beckoning for self-discovery. She begs for it. Conveying her sound seems almost unfair. It’s built on a simple notion of emotion. Perhaps that explains the near explosion of eager fans frantic to share their own discovery, ultimately propelling this songstress’ art to the top of Hypem charts. A toy keyboard is all it took to awaken the inevitable. That evolved into a piano. The notes articulated feelings. Then chords turned to melodies. Heart-piercing lyrics cloaked in lush orchestration. Now BANKS’ EP London applauds her arrival. The four songs introduce this budding self-taught songstress, one whose voice echoes a generation. She writes with a restless urgency, lyrically candid yet relatable, weaving vivid imagery into pop-skewed lullabies as she lures with every note, every chord, every breath. A hypnotic blend of beats, pianos, echoes and an addictive vocal presence, BANKS slips in and out of genres with an ease so effortless, it once again serves as a reminder to leave your tags behind. Hip-hop, Pop, R&B, Alternative, Electronic… they all live in this very place. And she can be any or all. Or none. A singer. A poet. A pianist. A narrator. An artist.

Each month, Life Is Art brings the community together at our River Of Art pop-up art-in-public-places show to socialize through the power of the arts with the goal of exposing new artists, introducing new people to art appreciation, providing an inspiring space to make new connections, showcasing local businesses and charities, while providing a fun break during the work week. Cocktail Collection is providing a complimentary welcome drink and light bites! The modest $10 door fee goes to support Life Is Art’s mission.
Art is an inspiring talking point, discussing it is a great way to break the ice. Culture is one of the primary elements that build community and hosting a business networker within an art show is a unique way to encourage socializing, so be sure to bring plenty of business cards and an open mind!

Simon Green, AKA Bonobo, is an artist very much at the peak of his powers. His 2013 album ‘The North Borders’ was the high watermark of his career to date: a masterful record, marrying Green’s inimitable melodic genius to cutting edge electronics, bass and drums.
An artist that constantly pushes himself outside of his musical comfort zone, Bonobo’s ranging personal tastes and regularly expanding range of synthesizers and instruments continue to take his productions to new levels. This outlook has earned him a reputation as one of the most pioneering figures in electronic music, in both his solo DJ sets and 12-piece live band shows.
Kastle’s forward-thinking music results from his long-time love of hip-hop and R&B, fused with the magnetizing effect that dubstep, garage and bass-heavy music has had on him. Last year, his track “Stay Forever” from the eponymous EP reached the iTunes Top 10 Best Electronic Songs of 2012, and he embarked on his highly successful ‘Stay Forever’ tour across North America, and into Australia and NewZealand.

Breast cancer is manageable and preventable. The key is early detection. However, studies have shown that minority women in Miami-Dade are less likely to seek preventative breast health care.
The Mammography Art Initiative (MAI) was established at the Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine at FIU in 2011 to address the need for better access to affordable breast health services and breast health education for underserved women in Miami. Through the fundraising efforts of the previous two years’ art shows, we have been able to raise over $50,000 in funds and services to sponsor mammograms and follow up care for hundreds of women all over Miami-Dade County.
The MAI has been inundated with support from local artist and the healthcare community. We are continually expanding our program and hope to close this health disparity gap in the near future.
