Jason Moran (1993 Winner in Jazz) will bring an inspired blend of jazz, skateboarding and new media to the YoungArts Campus for an intimate Salon about Moran’s creative inspiration. Join Moran who will meet iconic street skater and childhood hero Mark Gonzales (also known as Gonz”) for the first time. Often called the Salvador Dali of skateboarding, Gonz has been credited with reinventing the wheel for street skaters and for bringing street skating to the forefront with a 1984 cover for Thrasher magazine. Following the talk, Moran will share a site-specific iteration of this body of work replete with a carved-out half-bowl, half-pipe ramp installed on the Plaza in a family-friendly, multidisciplinary Outside the Box performance on the YoungArts Plaza. Featuring Miami’s best street skaters organized by professional skateboarder Joel Meinholz and acclaimed skateboard photographer Ian O’Connor, experience a 360-degree immersion filled with the art of improvisation in both music and sport. STARR Catering Group will be offering a range of beverage options, and light to hearty bites will be available for purchase. Tickets are $35 general admission, $28 members and $20 students; admission is free for Outside the Box performance.
