Getting down LITERALLY at Nu-Deco’s debut show.

Sooo! Every year the fancy artsy folks in Miami get together on the Monday of Art Basel week at the Perez Art Museum to give out $$$ for the arts in Miami! This year, Sam Hyken of Nu-Deco Ensemble was named a Champion of the Arts by the Knight Foundation. He was tasked to choose an artist & a project to support and he chose US & our hybrid-documentary in production, Birthright?!

We are so grateful for this award and can’t wait to share our progress with you!

Thank you Knight Foundation, Sam Hyken & Nu-Deco Ensemble!

We love our local burn. If you haven't or have ever been to Burning Man, it is something to experience. The weather is a breezy 70 degrees and the ocean sounds are lapping at your tent. We have met burners here from Seattle, Chicago, New Orleans and even as far as Finland!
