Friends With You: Dream Maker
FriendsWithYou is an art collective based in Miami, Florida, founded by Sam Borkson and Arturo Sandoval in 2002. The group promotes the two artists' common message of magic, luck, and friendship in popular culture by creating and sharing designer toys, multimedia, paintings, sculptures, performances and art installations. FriendsWithYou presented their floating blimp parade Skywalkers at Art Basel Miami Beach in 2006. For the IMA’s Efroymson Family Entrance Pavilion, FriendsWithYou fashioned a new blimp mobile entitled Dream Maker, made up of brightly colored vinyl balloons suspended from a rotating metal frame. FriendsWithYou’s rainbow-colored, inflatable caterpillar Mr. TTT was featured in the IMA’s downtown Fountain Square Art Parade on April 26.
Special thanks to the Efroymson Family Fund, a CICF Fund, for their generous support of this project.
