Balloon Blamed For Wynwood Art Gallery Fire
Fire Causes $100,000 Worth Of Damage
POSTED: Tuesday, December 11, 2007
MIAMI -- An advertising balloon tied to a Wynwood art gallery is being blamed for causing a morning blaze that destroyed about $100,000 worth of artwork.
The fire broke out just before 3 a.m. Monday at the Harold Golen Gallery at 2921 NW Sixth Ave.
Fire investigators said a large advertising balloon secured to the gallery for Art Basel might have cause an electrical fire.
The balloon was tied to the weather head outside the building, where the power comes into the gallery. Investigators said friction caused by the balloon bobbing around in the sky likely sparked the blaze.
"We have been concerned about the balloon because it has come close to the houses," said Beatrice Pantoja, who lives nearby.
Gallery owner Harold Golen told Local 10 he received a call from the alarm company early Monday morning alerting him to the fire.
Golen did not want to go on camera, but he told Local 10's Kellie Butler he has about 100 paintings inside the gallery from Art Basel week. He called the paintings pop surrealism art created by Ron English and Skotolen.
No one was hurt.

We can thank Brett Erlich for shedding some light on the subject. LOL

Just wanted to share some of my latest news with you. I was blessed to be featured in yet another publication. (This makes my 3rd this year… good stuff!). What makes this one special is that I was actually chosen over 7 other very talented artists by the readers of the magazine. When I spoke to the editor he told me that he has never had such a response for an artist that was being considered.
Above is the article as well as the cover of the Mag. you can pick it up on stands throughout West Palm, Broward, and Dade county. Thanks for the support!
