Downtown's growing art scene is getting a global boost with the opening of CU-1, a 5,500-square-foot gallery and photography space located in the historic Security Building. CU-1 will celebrate its grand opening on June 27, debuting its first group show, "Look at Me" (through August 23), featuring five international fashion and art photographers. 

The works of Paul Solomons, Billy & Hells, Tina Luther, Christopher Thomas, and Roger Weber will all be making their Miami debuts. Though new to the Miami scene, each "Look at Me" artist has garnered personal success. Solomons is currently the creative director for British GQ; Thomas published the acclaimed pictorial New York Sleeps; and the combined works of Emmett, Luther, and Weber have graced the pages of Rolling Stone, Vogue, and Vanity Fair, amongst many illustrious others.

Weber is also one of CU-1's founders, alongside industry veterans Stephan Goettlicher, Bernd Mueller, and Marc Schmidt. "There are not many venues dedicated to photography in the city, and none with our emphasis," says Goettlicher. "Our goal with CU-1 is to introduce the Miami audience to the art of incredible photographers, most of them European, whose work is generally new to Miami." 117 NE 1 Ave., Miami
