Unscripted Bal Harbour, Christy Gast
Bal Harbour’s signature public art project hosts two exciting events
Two events were hosted in the Bal Harbour Shops in celebration of Unscripted Bal Harbour’s second iteration “Self Portrait as a Barefoot Mailman,” by artist Christy Gast.
The first, at Books & Books Bal Harbour, was an Unscripted Bal Harbour Art Chat, Christy Gast in conversation with Thom Collins, Director of the Miami Art Museum. Christy and Thom spoke about her public art installation, her performative practice and the support of public art by artists living and working in Miami.
The second, sponsored by Neiman Marcus Bal Harbour, Suntrust Bank, and Bal Harbour Magazine, was an Intimate lunch with Christy Gast at Neiman Marcus Bal Harbour. Christy and Unscripted Bal Harbour Curator Claire Breukel gave a behind-the-scenes look at the nomination, selection, and creation of the installation. The artist also unveiled the limited edition print she created for the program. The lunch was hosted by Sarah Harrelson, Editor of Bal Harbour Magazine and Unscripted Nominators: Silvia Karman Cubina, Executive Director & Chief Curator of the Bass Museum.
