Drank all the wine and left.

Justin Long did, during his last visit. Straight out of the bottle by the end of the night. A meeting of the minds nevertheless. One of those rare Miami natives that has earned the right to wear shorts and a tropical shirt to any art event just for living here his whole life. 

His recent exhibition tittled "The Youth Fair Bro" featured a collaboration with good friend and artist Robert "Meatball" Lorie for which they recreated  a typical youth fair. The thrill rides built for the exhibition included a functional "Gravitron" man powered with a bicycle by the artists. 

"It took about eight people to run all the rides and host the show. But it was a lot of fun for those who attended. We wanted it to be fun above all and i think we accomplished that" said Long. And we agree, this was possibly the most fun art show we have ever seen. 

The Miami blog ArtLurker wrote a great article on the event. For more information on Justin Long and his work, visit his website
