"TIMESCAPES" Captures The Vibrancy Of South Beach Through Paint, Mosaics And Mirrors - "Jeffrey's background in large-scale graffiti art and spray-painting coupled with Sebastian's vast knowledge of stained glass, mirrored mosaic and public murals were instrumental to the success of the commission. "Both stained glass and spray paint have very highly saturated and flat qualities so it made sense to approach the design in terms of the architecture, the graphics, the space, and the whole context of the environment," noted Duncan-Portuondo. "Responding to one another's work as we moved along, having fun with the project and having the freedom to go where we wanted to artistically, is what helped us achieve Cricket's goal successfully.""

Miami Beach Corruption Troubles Deepen With Apparent FBI Leak - Miami - News - Riptide 2.0: "As part of the effort to clean-up corruption on the island, an FBI liaison is now working full-time with MBPD.
