After hosting a memorable after-party for Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater last month, the Green Room Society, Adrienne Arsht Center’s young patrons group, followed up with a different approach to “the arts” – visual arts! On Thursday, May 7, GRS hosted the private opening of Hong Kong-based painter Simon Birch, who was making his US debut at the gallery, AE District.
More than 100 GRS members and their guests attended this intimate gathering at the chic Design District gallery where Birch’s colorful paintings adorned the brick walls. Birch, who has been featured at the Hong Kong Museum as well as the Louis Vuitton Gallery, was thrilled to be a part of the GRS’ effort to reach beyond the performing arts community. Visiting Mami for the first time, Birch recognized the vibrancy of the emerging cultural community. Max Pierre, owner of AE District as well as a co-chair of GRS, also agreed by stating, “GRS’s mission is to bring the arts to the youth and the youth to the arts. To do events like this not only helps expose GRS to a whole other audience but we’re exposing the performing arts to another world. We are bridging the different arts communities and leading the way in building this growing cultural scene.”
