Shepard Fairey, Amanda, and daughters

With the pleasure of attending the event together with Shepard Fairey and his family, AM headed over to the opening of Small Gift Miami (previewed) for a bit of cross-generational fun during the 50th Anniversary Celebration of Sanrio. Coinciding with Art Basel Week, the Floridian version of last months successful group exhibition and mobile pop-up shop in Los Angeles (covered) lived up to it’s predecessor, with attendees enjoying a host of the hottest artists of the day reinvent Sanrio’s timeless characters.

Curators Roger Gastman and Zio Fulcher spared no expense for the exhibition and pop-up shop, also garnering assistance from Spotlight Tattoo for those brave enough to get inked with Sanrio imagery. With “daddy” producing a fitting piece for the show – a screenprint of his Hello Kitty piece also released in Miami in conjunction with the events print showcase, where proceeds will go to non-profit Hands On Miami – it goes without saying Shepard’s daughters had a ball. Yet regardless of age, fun was had by all.
