The first episode of the three-part series premiered Wednesday featuring artist Jessy Nite and Christopher Pastor, director of corporate relations at the Pérez Art Museum Miami.
“The arts have really helped transform Miami in the sense that people look at us in a different way,” Pastor tells the show’s director and host, Aileen Quintana, in the first episode. Quintana is also a local artist and art director of III Points Festival.
