The Melech Collection translates to “King”, and is the genesis of Stoudemire’s acclaimed career in sports, a lifelong interest in culture, and dedication to philanthropy. Uniting seemingly disparate audiences of sports and contemporary art, The Melech Collection teaches the value of cultural capital through the cumulative knowledge of mind and body; to be truly empowered, awareness and action must exert in conjunction.
Stoudemire will curate a 40 foot installation as a highlight of SCOPE Miami Beach’s Special Programs. Additionally, Stoudemire will conceptualize and lead a lively panel discussion in SCOPE’s Atrium, moderated by Sotheby’s.
Definitely on my “Must-See” List for this edition of SCOPE Miami Beach!

Lousy weather did not stop me or some of the regions arts movers and shakers from attending the “Seat at the Table (for the future of Broward Arts)” at the Broward Cultural Division this evening. In attendance were people from the visual arts, theater arts, filmmakers, dancers, musicians, teachers, arts organization chairs, curators, collectors, an art appraiser and other arts disciplines – all of us united by our serious concerns for the future of the arts in the county.
The origin of this event was based from the exchange of ideas at an earlier event that took place last month: “Art, Culture and the Creative Economy in Ft. Lauderdale” Panel Discussion at Pipeline Workspaces.
While there was no official agenda, there was a considerable amount of sharing of information that made 2 hours fly by. At the start we were given large index cards with instructions to draw or write what our vision or mission for the future of the arts in Broward is. These we learned would be complied for a future slideshow as part of the branding for moving those visions forward.
Then we learned about the Creation Station Lab, covered a brief overview of advocacy techniques, and did get to discuss a couple of the visions attendees had for the future of the arts in the region.
Afterwards, there was time for some quick networking where I got to exchange information with several amazing creators and found out about a great monthly event in Historic Sistrunk from writer/director educator Darius Daughtry , and about her upcoming film about domestic violence and her dating web series from actress/producer Sandra Justice :
For sure, I’m looking forward to the next Seat at the Table Discussion session and to being more involved in the Broward County local arts scene.
