A Face Gift
A moment in time is often more appreciated in retrospect than in the actual moment. A song or a movie can evoke emotion as the subconscious harkens back to a time gone by.
A photograph can have the same effect; but when that photograph becomes a portrait by artist Leonardo Hidalgo, the actual presentation of the piece becomes one of those sentimental moments for the recipient.
Hidalgo is a rising star with an artistic mindset and demeanor that is transferred from his persona to the canvas. He has created portraits of Golden Age celebrities Sophia Loren, Elizabeth Taylor and Grace Kelly. These pieces adorn the walls of Miami restaurants and common areas of Miami condos and buildings.

As always, the compilation of these signature events is an exciting undertaking, and SocialMiami is there throughout the season promoting, documenting and supporting.
