The Miami Art Museum has turned a corner in its efforts to build a new $220 million Herzog & de Meuron–designed home in downtown Miami, earning access to one hundred million dollars in much-needed county bonds toward the project. The Miami-Dade County manager approved the funding after the museum announced that it had secured the thirty million dollars in private pledges required to open the public coffers.
MAM chairman Aaron Podhurst, who has been one of the primary proponents of the proposed 120,000-square-foot building, told Matthew Haggman for the Miami Herald, “This is the day we’ve been waiting for, this is a very exciting day for us.” The museum is slated to open in 2013.

A fashionable contemporary art gallerist in Chelsea, New York falls for a brooding new music composer in this comic take on the state of contemporary art. Adam Goldberg (Two Days In Paris) plays the composer, whose work calls for paper crumpling, glass breaking and bucket kicking. Marley Shelton (Grindhouse) plays the gorgeous Chelsea gallerist, whose latest show features an artist, played by Vinnie Jones (Snatch), who employs taxidermy and household objects. Further complicating the affair is the composer’s brother, played by Eion Bailey (“Band of Brothers”), whose highly commercial art work - the financial backbone of the gallery - is sold to corporate clients discreetly out of the gallery’s back room.
