Cultural Events

One of the aspects that differentiates BACARDI Sailing Week from other National and International regattas is the cultural tie-in. Our aim is to reach out to sailors and the local community alike and offer a different prospective on sailing and what it represents through the eyes of world’s best photographers.

Between 2010 and 2013 we worked with Nautical Photographers, Cory Silken, Franco Pace and Onne van der Wal whose exhibitions summarized their fantastic body of work from the past years in the filed of yachting and sailing.

In 2014, we worked with Cushy Gigs, a Wynwood based creative team, engaging ten local street artists to create ten custom-tailored white canvasses shaped as jibs showcasing sailing through their imagination. The sails were displayed at the iconic premier open-air shopping, dining, and entertainment destination in Coconut Grove.

Sailing Dreams was the title of BACARDI’s Sailing Week Annual Art Exhibit in 2015. We invited to Miami light painting forerunner Vicki DaSilva and organized a special pop-up exhibition in conjunction with Galleria Ca’ d’Oro.

For this year exhibit we partnered with our friends at Wooden Boat Magazine and Florida based boat builder George Krewson to build an original Shellback sailboat in one-week time. We will set-up a temporary boat-building shed in CocoWalk that, coincidently, was home, back in the 1950’s, of a real boat building business. 

In conjunction with this project we will also be partnering with Italian artist and painter, Roberto Fiorentino, an innovating artist and painter from Italy, which will feature his “OFFshore” collection in his pop-up “WeGallery” inside CocoWalk. Many of his works are sailing inspired pieces that explore different painting techniques. Bright, glistening characteristics dominate Roberto’s work: a purely recreational act, unaffected by any sort of logical complexity. Roberto’s past exhibitions, including those in New York, Florence, Sorrento, Milan, Naples, have all received critical acclaim and he has been featured in several publications.
