Special project: "Brazil Through The Eyes of Portinari" by Ronaldo Fraga (Miami, FL)

ART, Fashion & SOCIAL:Fashion Show | Art Talk | Experience

The55Project, together with the Portinari Institute, brings the stylist Ronaldo Fraga and the ballerina Ana Botafogo to promote the connection between art and fashion, on May 16 to 18, at Ironside Miami.

All the project elements revolve around what the poet Carlos Drummond de Andrade defines as the “Portinari Universe”. It will be three days of dynamic activities – a fashion show, documentaries, art talks, public schools’ children’s’ workshops with activities in Portuguese – all these in a set design inspired by Portinari’s work. The event will also include a presentation from the Miami City Ballet inspired by the work “Guerra e Paz” as a tribute to the Brazilian ballerina Ana Botafogo.
