youngARTS, DCOTA Winter Market, Lingerie Miami
A First Person Perspective
youngARTS is the core program for the National Foundation for Advancement in the Arts and identifies the nation’s most talented high school seniors in nine different disciplines in the performing, literary and visual arts. The students are flown to Miami to engage in master classes taught by the literal masters of their specific discipline.
Past masters have been Edward Albee and Frank Gehry, to name only two. This year legendary pop artist, James Rosenquist, taught the master class to the visual arts and photography youngARTS winners and was honored with the Arison Award at the An Affair of the Arts performance and gala.
DCOTA Winter Market

The Design Center of the Americas (DCOTA) brought together a powerhouse group from the world of interior design and architecture for their annual Winter Market. Editor in Chief of Architectural Digest, Paige Rense, moderated a panel discussion that was staged as a town hall meeting, a scenario inspired by the recent presidential debates. On hand were design legends Geoffrey Bradfield, Alex Gorlin and Scott Snyder to share their insights on the business aspects of design. Those who attended had the opportunity to ask questions and receive advice from these interior design masters.
