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.
The death of HWH PR client, Andre Blay, the creator of home video, was recently announced. Andre was the one who thought of putting movies on tape. Our PR agency pioneered the category with Andre’s company Magnetic Video. We reported to Jack Dryer and later Len White. Steve Roberts at Twentieth-Century Fox did the deal with Andre. They were all fabulous to work with. RIP to a very special human being.
I’m looking for people to participate in a huge book exchange. My favorite librarian started it. You can be anywhere in the world to participate. All you have to do is buy your favorite book (just one) and send it to a stranger.
You’ll receive a maximum of 36 books. It’s going to be so much fun. If you are interested in participating, please let me know. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will send you the details. Thank you.

I think someone was reading my mind. As we get older, I worry that many of us are going to need a lot more assistance in doing household chores, visiting doctors, and preparing meals.
Obviously, I was not alone in my thoughts. A start-up in Miami has dedicated itself to pairing up college students with seniors who need help. I think this is such a wonderful idea.
Go to http://www.joinpapa.com if you need assistance. Encourage a college student that you know to get involved. Pricing is outlined on the website. I am told that every student goes through intense training and is completely vetted. I have included a phone number so you can call and ask all kinds of questions.
