Please join us as we continue our six-month long #HIALEAHNOW Series at the Retro Future Night presented by Jameson! Itâ€™s 2017 and we have self-driving cars, Facetime, Snapchat filters and SpaceX! Weâ€™re living in the post-space age and weâ€™re about to go to Mars. Letâ€™s celebrate the fantasy and excitement of the post-modern 1960s and pay homage to its vision of our future. This â€œRetro Futureâ€ indoor New Yearâ€™s party will be located in one of Leah Artâ€™s Districtâ€™s coolest new locations and will feature interactive CircX performers and Miamiâ€™s own time traveler straight from the Bermuda triangle, Otto Von Schirach. Filmgate Interactive will immerse you into a virtual world and Virtual Relief will create video mapping installations that will completely transform the space. Weâ€™re in the futureâ€¦ letâ€™s celebrate!

About The Leah Arts District
Hialeahâ€™s Southeastern industrial corridor rose to prominence during the 1980s as one of the largest and busiest areas of production and manufacturing in Florida. As a result of modernization combined with the effects of outsourcing, the uses that were once prevalent in the area dissipated and this particular area was all but abandoned.
Since that time, a medley of different uses has been incorporated into the area including a heavy presence of some of Miami-Dade Countyâ€™s most prolific thrift stores.
These thrift stores have been instrumental in introducing Hialeah to an entire generation of antique lovers and artists. The Hialeah Artist Live/Work Overlay District, also known as The Leah Arts District, enjoys a strategic proximity to the newly proposed Hialeah Market Station development project, Miamiâ€™s artistic hubs, and other destination areas within Miami-Dade County. Because of it’s location and highly affordable price per square footage, Hialeahâ€™s new Artist Live / Work District is in a position to play a vital and important role in the artistic and cultural development of not only Hialeah, but the entire South Florida community.
