According to the Miami Downtown Development Authority, "Art Days, now in its seventh year, brings the community together with arts and culture institutions, galleries and artists in Downtown Miami. The Miami DDA along with the cultural spaces and artists in Downtown Miami come together to present three fun-filled days of unique cultural experiences that include special programs and free events." This year's events will be held at various Downtown venues from September 7-9, 2018.
As part of our mindwarehouse mission, we are supporters of the Arts. We have hosted and sponsored a diverse array of events featuring visual and vocal arts performances including fashion, spoken word and dance. In addition to Art Days, we have held several art exhibitions featuring both local and international artists. We always enjoy Art Days since we meet our neighbors and are always surprised on how many visitors make the journey across county lines from Broward County for this special weekend!
Our onsite continous arts project, Art Walls is an opportunity for artists to exhibit their works. Emerging or veteran artists can explore the local art market via the walls in our work and meeting spaces. Through Art Walls, we are committed to presenting a diverse selection of fine art and photographs for sale in unique rotating exhibits which are highlighted through private and community events that support local business, non-profits, & arts organizations.
We are now in the process of curating our Art Walls which will be turn our space into a weekend "art gallery" for Art Days. We expect that our current collection be up through November when preparations for Miami Art Week in December will begin. So far, we have seen work up from our long time friends and artists, Addonis Parker, Rebeca Pinto Bottone, Marilyn Montoto, BlackBrain, Yvette Michele, and Roc Sol. We are looking more for works to come in from some new to our space emerging and veteran artists. Our in-house art curator, Winsome Bolt always finds new pieces that make an impact and our space a very unique place to be.
Artists who are interested in exhibition opportunities may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. To start the curation process, we ask artists to e-mail up to 5 low-resolution JPEG images of pieces they would like to exhibit link or link to an online portfolio
