Paramount Miami Worldcenter Unveils Contemporary Art Collection With Show-Stealing Exhibit Of Flying Car
December 13, 2019
The art of innovation will be on display during Miami Art Week as PARAMOUNT Miami Worldcenter unveils a prototype of the world’s first flying car along with its contemporary art collection at a special preview exhibit on Tuesday, December 3rd.
PARAMOUNT, the world’s most amenitized tower known for its innovative flying car Skyport, will host the exhibit entitled:“Miami 2020 and Beyond” featuring the PAL-V (Personal Air Landing Vehicle) Pioneer flying car and an impressive contemporary art collection including“Red World” by renowned artist Steven Manolis, and “Miami Vice” and “Moons Over Miami” by Miami’s hometown museum-class graffiti artist Ahol Sniffs Glue.
The outer-worldly Dutch-made PAL-V Pioneer – already in production and selling for $599,000 with 70 flying cars already sold – is equipped with retractable overhead and rear propellers and tail wings, and can cruise at an altitude as high as 12,500 feet. Using automobile gasoline instead of jet fuel, it reaches speeds of 200 miles per hour in the air and 100 miles per hour on the ground.
Miami is regarded as the “City of the Future” and PARAMOUNT prides itself on being light years ahead of all other projects in South Florida. Its 58 th floor Skydeck is designed so it can be modified in the future as a Skyport with a hydraulic floor capable of transforming its rooftop pool into a take-off and landing pad for flying cars.
The exhibit unveils works in PARAMOUNT’s permanent collection including a painting by Steven Manolis as well as canvases by acclaimed street artist Ahol Sniffs Glue (also known as David Anasagasti).His murals depicting “drowsy eyes” have gained notoriety with a recent showing at the Norton Museum in Palm Beach and Wynwood’s newly debuted Museum of Graffiti. Two canvases,measuring 12 feet x 14 feet and 12 feet by 15 feet,feature his trademark “eyes” in spray paints combining silvers, grays and whites in step with the tones of the PARAMOUNT lobby and the building’s sophisticated urban design.
Other works include dreamy, floating sculptures by Tatiana Blanco, paintings by Janos, photographs by Rafael Balcazar,and Gonzalo Fuenmayor,and many other acclaimed artists.
“We are delighted to support, promote and celebrate innovation as well as prominent local and international artists at PARAMOUNT Miami Worldcenter,” said developer Dan Kodsi. “Miami is the city of the future and an international art world capital. We are pleased to celebrate Miami Art Week by unveiling our Contemporary Collection.”
