The minute I received the above email from The Jewish Museum of Florida, ( a few blocks from our condo), I knew that Eliot and I would have to be one of the first to see the new cutting-edge exhibit that combines street art, high-end fashion and digital technology. We were there for the set-up. This exhibit is going to attract audiences that have never stepped into Miami Beach’s first Jewish congregation. It’s going to make headlines everywhere.
The featured artist is Daniel Chimowitz, an internationally renowned painter and fashion designer. He works very closely with Patricia Field, an American costume designer and stylist. She is best known for her work on the ever popular, Sex In The City, TV series.
Chimowitz literally creates walking canvases. All of his fabrics incorporate high energy, street art. One of his newest designs is a reflective fabric that lights up when you photograph it with a flash. It’s startling and exciting.
The exhibit was the brainchild of Jacqueline Goldstein, the Jewish Museum’s curator. Listen to her explanation of what you will see.
Chimowitz has shown his designs in Paris, London, Beijing, New York, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, San Francisco and Miami. He is a breath of fresh air. His interview below not only talks about his inspirations, but gives you insight into the life of an artist.

I can’t figure it out. Why do some people want to go backwards. I have friends who are collecting vinyl records and now use cameras that give you instant printed pictures. We worked so long, and hard, to go digital, and now the purists want to prove older technology is better.
Kodak recently announced that it is partnering with retailer Forever 21 for a 26-piece collection — T-shirts, crop tops, jackets, loungewear, polos, and sweatshirts. This is all in an attempt to get young audiences familiar with the Kodak name.
The current Kodak has nothing to do with the giant film company. The new Kodak is following in the footsteps of Urban Outfitters which features Fujifilm’s instant-printing Instax camera. The new Polaroid who also has its own instant camera.
I know a few college students who love having an instant camera so they can print pictures on the spot. It’s novel to them, but not to us. They think they are cool, but in my opinion, it’s a fad that will not last. The digital world is much cheaper, and much more efficient.

For some reason, Google feels it’s necessary to offer a feature that allows readers to access only good news. Google said they developed this feature with a group of journalists who want to fight the fatigue from negative news.
As far as I am concerned, there is only one way to get rid of most of the negative news we face today. I hope you know what I mean.
To access the new feature, all you have to say to Google Assistant is, “Hey Google, tell me something good” to hear positive news. You can write the same words in the Google search box on your electronic devices.
Personally, I think Google should be focused on helping this country get sane again. I don’t want Google to be spending time on people who want to put their heads in the sand. These are the times we live in. Helping people escape the facts is not going to help us get past this administration.
If you don’t agree with me, then watch what the Republicans have to say about their leader.
