Following dinner, guests will dance the night away under the stars on the magically-transformed outdoor plaza as Crash the Ball attendees join the party.

Parodi Lecture in Philosophy of Art: “Currency, Value, Hype”
Sunday, December 9, 2012 / 11:30am – 1pm, doors open 11am
Miami Art Museum and University of Miami, Department of Philosophy present Martha Buskirk, Professor of art history and criticism at Montserrat College of Art, Beverly, Massachusetts. Despite the astonishing volume of activity in the realm of contemporary art, the subject itself defies easy categorization. Tangible objects may still have a certain edge in the marketplace, but that is less true in other contexts where programing often centers on ephemeral gestures and their reception. How have recent situation-based works transformed expectations about art? To what degree do these simply draw attention to the larger role of art as a social nexus?
Lecture admission free and open to the public.Light refreshments following lecture.
