green art USA.org will be hosting the green art fair MIAMI’08 in Midtown Miami during the high art and design season in Miami Dec 2008, the one-of-a-kind solar energy powered art fair…

green art fair MIAMI 2008 will be an awe-inspiring, never-before experienced single point of contact for the art and design world, eco-friendly businesses and all individuals interested in moving the environmental friendly movement forward.

Introducing eco-friendly artists, curators, sustainable designers and galleries to new audiences internationally has made green art fair MIAMI the most comprehensive destination for the eco-friendly art and design world available anywhere.

green art fair MIAMI offers the 20 participating art and design galleries, art projects and attending eco-art collector’s access to a unique environment and the ideal space truly superior to any of the other satellite fairs. It is the perfect platform for modern and contemporary galleries and design firms presenting art works and designs that bring new ideas for green living.

Sustainability, economy and efficiency are some of the positive implications that go hand in hand with using recycled/reused materials in art and design, yet the social and cultural implications of reusing materials in the context of art elicit strong support, and we believe, is one of the best ways to reduce waste. Art also is one of the universal languages that can help to stimulate human sensibilities to cause actions and reactions. Since the Dada movement of the early 20th Century, artists and designers have been re-using found objects as a way of commenting on consumer culture, industrial production and the meaning of art. Recycling as a design strategy is often associated with environmentalism, yet it is clearly is more complex than just a desire to tread lightly on the planet. green art fair MIAMI will highlight the different reasons and ways that artists and designers use reclaimed materials in their work and the different cultural implications that these varying strategies invoke. green art USA as an environmental friendly team has taken a number of additional steps to reduce the fair’s environmental impact as part of our contribution to the green movement.

Our online application system and increased electronic communication have reduced the amount of paper used by fair organizers compared to previous years.
The 15,000 sf tent fabric is reused and aluminum recycled and is part sponsor by their Canadian enviro-friendly manufacturer International Tentnology Corp.
We will be using LEDs technology to light up the entire tent, sponsored by Visual Formula LLC. and Omni Stage LLC. All the power we will be using in our events everyday is going to be Solar powered sponsor by our mother Nature Sun, Green-Energy-Products Corp. , Electron Industries and Electron Solar Energy Corp.
We have a program to donate all the tent’s interior design materials to the Habitat for Humanity cause. They will sell the donated items through their Re-store and be the recipients of all proceeds from the 100-Chairs-For-A- Cause Art Project. The goal of this unique art project, sponsored by green art USA, Valley Forge Fabrics and Waste Management Corporation, is to raise enough funds for Habitat for Humanity to build one low-income house locally as part of their Green Movement Miami Mission.
We are going to recycle all waste generated at the event through program sponsor Waste Management Corporation.
We will give away reusable shopping bags that are environmentally friendly, durable and effective to all the attendees. These bags will contain all the promotional material in the art fair and then can be re- used for grocery shopping as part or our campaign “because any action matters…” Concept created by green art USA with the generous support of sponsors: City of Miami, Valley Forge Fabrics and Soho Myriad Corporation.
