Here is an exclusive teaser of our newest documentary Rising Tide: A Story of Miami Artists with local artist Venessa Monokian.  She was an artist in residence with the ArtCenter/South Florida on Lincoln Road in Miami Beach when we caught up with her before Art Basel 2011.

Miami is in the middle of a cultural explosion. Filmed during the lead up to Art Basel Miami Beach in 2011, Rising Tide is a story about the visual artists who live and work in this emerging art city. Featuring Jen Stark, the TM Sisters, Venessa Monokian, Funner Projects, Brookhart Jonquil and gallery owner Brook Dorsch, this documentary takes you inside the working worlds of these unique creative talents and serves as the perfect introduction to the history and trajectory of Miami's creative development.
