About Mylinh
Mylinh Trieu Nguyen is a designer based in Miami, FL. Her work explores ideas of distribution, collaboration and curation through new and appropriated systems and frameworks.

Born and raised in Los Angeles, California she slowly made her way east, stopping in Minneapolis, MN as a design fellow at the Walker Art Center and most recently completing her MFA in Graphic Design at Yale University in New Haven, CT. She currently is the Art Director at The Wolfsonian-FIU, a museum of design and art in the heart of Miami Beach.

What distinguishes the Wolfsonian from any other museum is it's unusual collection of design objects and ephemera dating from the late 19th century to mid 20th century. It's mission is to use objects to illustrate the persuasive power of art and design, to explore what it means to be modern, and to tell the story of social, political, and technological changes that have transformed our world. It encourages people to see the world in new ways, and to learn from the past as they shape the present and influence the future.

Many people flock to Miami during the winter months to escape the cold. For James Deering, Vizcaya was home away from home. Built with the help of his friends and 1,000+ workers during the early 20th century, the Renaissance Italian and French influenced architecture and gardens make for a transformative experience.

When it comes to food, Miami can be really fussy and expensive. Being from Los Angeles I've been spoiled with amazing and affordable Japanese food. The Japanese Market is a little difficult to locate at first. It is on the ground floor of a nondescript office building in North Bay Village. Although it's small compared to it's California counterparts, the market meets most of your Japanese culinary needs. You would never expect by the size and location of the sushi bar to have such delicious food, but as they often say, looks can be deceiving.

Liza Sylvestre was born in South Minneapolis, Minnesota. Her summers were spent climbing trees and her winters were full of snow and many layers of sweaters and jackets. Sylvestre's early life and adolescence was defined by a significant and progressive hearing loss. Communication became increasingly dependent on small details that she became sensitive to. This simple physical fact created a very distinct lens through which she processed the world, and continues to process the world. She moved to Miami in 2006 where she shares a home studio with artist Luis Diaz. Her paintings and drawings grow out of simple things: single marks, a gesture hinted at with an overlapping of color. They require both spontaneity and control and a belief that beauty hangs somewhere in the balance between those poles. Sylvestre also runs the blog Hardrainlight.
