On Saturday, January 17 and Sunday, January 18, the My Ceviche crew was selling ceviche and stone crabs to patrons of the Beaux Arts Festival at the University of Miami. This two-day juried show is consistently ranked as one of the top 200 fine arts shows in the United States. The festival benefits Beaux Arts, which works to promote art in the community and bring patrons to the Lowe Art Museum, located on the University of Miami’s campus.

Our time on campus allowed us to interact with lots of residents in the South Miami area as well as University of Miami students. We’ve worked with the University of Miami on several projects – all of our blog posts about nutritional data include information collected by University of Miami students, in fact – and have participated in events hosted by University of Miami students, including the Dance Marathon and the launch party for Distraction magazine. We’ve also been hooking up UM students – all students, really – with Student Day (50% off burritos with a valid student ID every Tuesday)!
If you weren’t able to make it to the festival this weekend, be sure to check it out in 2016! There will be plenty of food to be eaten and plenty of art to be admired. And if you can’t wait, just make your way over to the Lowe Art Museum.
