Miami MediaMesh at the American Airlines Arena

Earlier this year, the American Airlines Arena installed on the western facade of the building a 3200 square foot flexible Times Square-esq video screen wall branded the Miami MediaMesh.

Coinciding with this year’s Art Basel Miami Beach, Gary Ressler, a property owner in Downtown, Richard Massey, a collector, and George Sanchez-Calderon, a Miami based artist, have coordinated to use this recent technological addition to Miami’s evermore vibrant skyline to screen artist films.

The project is simply called Miami MediaMesh at the American Airlines Arena. Micky Arison, who sits on the Basel Host committee, was instrumental in its inception and the committee as a whole has apparently been and very generous and forthcoming.

Projected screening times are 11pm to 1am from now until Sunday.

On Sunday the trio will curate a local compilation of work for a BYOB closing tailgate soiree, but for the moment are very much going with the flow.
