Basketball Season Kicks Off…with an Art Show?Juxtapoz // Tuesday, 26 Oct 2010
This show will see an “explosive re-purposing of the iconic official NBA Game Basketball and Backboard as defined by some of today’s most celebrated graffiti and street artists.”
Presented by Public Works Department and curated by Billi Kid and James & Karla Murray, this exhibit brings together visual art and athletics in an unusual way, but the show should offer a refreshing array of works during Miami Art Basel.
