Common Ground 2nd Annual LAB Miami Group Art Show
Artist-members from The LAB Miami will collaborate to present Common Ground, the 2nd Annual LAB Miami Group Art Show. The show will ask viewers to explore the commonalities between diverse mediums of art through the lens of sustainability.
By day, these artists are coworkers, grinding away on their individual artistic and entrepreneurial endeavors. But by night, they all heed to the same call of the artist inside them. Their collaboration represents both a meeting of the minds and an exposÃ© of the souls.
With the newly renovated IdeaGarden as backdrop, these artists have chosen to use their artistic expression as a means to create awareness around sustainability and environmental revitalization. The exploration unfolds through the colorful shades of Weinbachâ€™s paintings; [selfies]â€™ mesmerizing audio-visuals; the timelessness of Ayubiâ€™s images; the fleeting and yet vividly reminiscent nature of Failâ€™s work; to the vibrant threads on Vividlyâ€™s â€œcanvasâ€; the ingenuity of Vanilla Shakeâ€™s message; the inspiration from Fernandezâ€™ words; and the comforting setting created from Lewisâ€™ vision.
For These artists, art is more than just creative expression. Itâ€™s a living and a way of life.
For These Artists, art is more than something to be admired. Itâ€™s a tool for creating change.
For These Artists, art is more than a manipulation of elements. Itâ€™s a emblem of their blood, sweat, and tears.
And These artists are:
[selfies] (Jennifer Victor and Willie Avendano)
Vividly (Sabrina Scandar presenting Rosie Brown, Pamela Gallegos, and Corey Hunter)
Vanilla Shake Media (Vanessa Birnbaum, Shanna Dornbucsh, and Esther Weinbach)
