Free Night of Art every Monday at InterContinental Miami

Come lounge in the InterContinental Miami's lobby every Monday night during the Noche de Arte, a weekly live art event where you can watch art being created right before your eyes.

Noche de Arte  is hosted by local artists Jean and Iggy Font, founders of CollaboARTive in the Bird Road Arts District. Their monthly event strives to bridge the gap between artist and viewer. Although artists often work in seclusion, the Fonts offer them the opportunity to showcase their art to the public and appreciate those who step out of their comfort zone to do so.

The program offers artists a month of solo exhibition in the Lobby of the InterContinental Miami Hotel, and features the artist making work in the Lobby every Monday evening from 5 to 7 p.m.

Noche de Arte is presented in partnership with collaboARTive, InterContinental Miami Hotel, Greater Miami Convention and Visitors Bureau, and with support from the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs.

Here's a preview of 2024's resident artists:

March 4, 11, 18 and 25:

March Artist in Residence is Lila Lopez: A native of Nicaragua, LiLO has lived and worked in Miami since 2001 and is an emerging artist recognized for developing innovative techniques that create multimedia artistic experiences. LiLO found her artistic calling through involvement in the 305 art community. LiLo is experienced in mixed media, oil, lithography, sculpture and digital art/video and has a diverse and varied portfolio.

Ritchard Rodriguez: A New York-born, Miami-based painter known for his gestural, painterly, and vivid paintings. Rodriguez creates work with temperamental movement and a balanced  atmosphere with “controlled abandon.”
Elaine Defibaugh: Elaine Defibaugh received her BFA from Texas A&M Commerce and received her MFA from RIT. Her work is inspired by the transitional world that we experience, particularly the relationship between natural and man-made environments.
Mariantonia Gutierrez: As a queer multimedia artist, Gutierrez is driven to explore the depths of the human experience, drawing inspiration from metaphysics, art history, artificial intelligence, and philosophy.
Isaie “Zeek” Mathias: Zeek is a multimedia artist who holds a Bachelor’s degree in psychology and a Master’s degree in behavioral science. With a goal to generate dialog through art, Zeek has received numerous recognitions for his artistic work.
