October and Collective Arts Are Bringing the Beer to Miami’s Art Basel

Street artists, live music, and beer—all under the Miami sun—is our kind of party. Luckily for you, October has partnered with Chicago-based creative agency Cake to bring this party to Art Basel next month. More specifically, we’re bringing the beer via Collective Arts Brewing, and Cake is bringing five street artists from across the country, DJs, and an augmented reality photo booth. It’s all happening in the Wynwood arts district from December 5 to 9, 1 p.m. to 1 a.m. daily.

But back to the beer. The Canadian brewery will drop a new line of limited-release cans designed by the same artists whose work will be showcased throughout the five-day event. This includes Junkyard, a Los Angeles-based artist who explores the darker side of the American dream, as well as Jason Garcia, a Denver-based painter whose geometric murals can be found throughout the RiNo neighborhood. Their original art will grace Ransack the Universe, the latest in Collective Art’s impressive IPA lineup.

The beer will be served and sampled throughout the week, but you can join October and Collective Arts on Sunday, December 9 during a curated event featuring a surprise artist. This artist’s large-scale mural will utilize crowd participation to create a base layer of art, color, and tags. Then the artist will build off the crowd-sourced art to create a cohesive final creation. All the while, beer will be flowing and music will be going. The Art Basel Pop-Up is free to attend, but please remember to RSVP here.
