Death to Disco Wednesdays Brings Art and Music to Miami Beach
Something special is going on here. Tony Goldman may have sadly passed last year, but his last cultural mission in Miami's Wynwood area continues to blossom down the path of a growing artistic force with a mind and manner of its own.

It's an exciting time in this district, and the people who find themselves making a home there are embracing the new ideas the city has brought to them. Olivia Kirzhneva and Kairo Gudino, for instance, are two young artists so inspired by the community around them, they've been feverishly creating for months.
Of course, once you've created, the only thing left to do is share, and they're kicking off a new exhibition at Mister Wolfe tonight, Wednesday, July 31, free for everyone to enjoy.
Kirzhneva and Gudino aren't new to the creative worlds, but working together in their current mediums is a new experience for both. Kirzhneva, originally from Russia, studied art in London and got her start showing around Europe before recently relocating to our city. Meanwhile, Gudino has made quite a name for himself in the music scene as DJ and producer Chalk.
"After we met, we got along," Kirzhneva said of their chance meeting back in April. "He started opening up to me in other ways, not just musically. I saw him doing little things here and there and it kind of brought another spark back to me. I started to look at my work differently."

The show at Mister Wolfe will be the pair's second show together in the past month. The artistic partnership has been beneficial to both of them, and is definitely something both will continue to pursue.
"It happened by accident but it's a happy accident," she said. "We kind of have fun seeing what the other is doing. It's kind of harmonious."
