Visit Philadelphia’s Love + Grit On the Road, Miami Art Week
VISIT PHILADELPHIA®’s popular Love + Grit Podcast is putting a spotlight on some of Philly’s top creatives in fashion, music and art on Friday, December 2, 2022, in South Beach. Miami Art Week visitors will have an opportunity to enjoy a slice of Philadelphia with Love + Grit: On the Road.
The event will include artist engagement, food, cocktails and much more – all with a Philly twist.
Guests can explore a special audio-visual exhibition about the journey of Darrell Alston, owner of Bungee Oblečení Footwear. Alston was recently featured on VISIT PHILADELPHIA’s podcast.

There also will be a meet and greet with Philadelphia artists Symone Salib, Lawren Alice, Alloyius McIlwaine and Tiff Davis x AmericanQueenTJD, who created custom Bungee sneakers that will be displayed on site as sculpture.
Philadelphia DJs including international and legendary Rich Medina – also recently featured on the podcast – Joshua Lang and DJ Matpat will provide the music. Takeaways for guests include Polaroids by UV Lucas and DIY screen print totes.
