"The Doc" - Located in the main floor gallery. A 2 piece series by Marianna Fox, granddaughter of Dr. James McCormick. The 2 pictures document 'The Doc' himself watching one of his greatest loves - the sport of boxing. Both photos were taken at the 1966 fight between Big Cat and Muhammad Ali.

McCormick Place is certainly a place to go visit. Rich in history (specifically, Miami history) stories emerge from each corner, room and floor, as well as, the elevator, walls, and the roof! However, it's a place where new ideas and stories are born each day. Peek into the artist studios, visit the exhibits, and, on First Friday Art Walk in Downtown Miami, sit under the tree out front, gaze at the stars, the Downtown Miami skyline...

And, as Sean McCormick (Owner/Curator) will tell you, it all began with a concept. I was going to reveal the story behind the concept shown here which is now a rooftop mural, designed by Eleazar Delgado ...but you'll just have to go visit and find out yourself.

My Art Escape

This blog documents my weekly art adventures in South Florida. To me, the first response to art should be visceral. Then, and when ready, I move beyond the visceral and develop an intellectual response. I like to take notes and photographs, research and think, and then return to write about my experience. South Florida's art scene is exploding! I hope that my adventures will help you develop a greater appreciation of art. I won't write much down, but I'll provide you the links, a couple of photos, and a bit of information. The rest is up to you. Go out and discover art, hone your appreciation, and share your knowledge!
