We’re celebrating 4 years of being active in the Miami arts and culture scene with an event that brings together all the elements we love in our city: Art, Music, Beer and Food.

While there are many private collections focusing on Latin American, Caribbean, and other cultural art movements in the region, none specifically focus on artists who have made Miami their home. As Yo Miami’s four year anniversary approaches, it will unveil its biggest project to date: the Yo Miami Permanent Collection, aimed at rectifying this lapse.

“What Remains” the first exhibition for the collection is indicative of its mission to document the evolution of the Miami art scene in an effort to expose the immense talent that has grown out of South Florida. The exhibition will be the first of many initiatives focused on preserving our city’s artistic legacy and sharing it with residents and visitors alike.

-“What Remains” exhibition artists: Trek 6, Ruben Ubiera, Jay Bellicchi (Remote), Claudio Picasso (CP1), Yuhmi Collective, Douglas Hoekzema, Lorie Ofir, Rei Ramirez, Nicole Salgar, Luis Berros, Nate Dee, Delvs, Ivan Roque, Raul Santos (OEMS), WHUT
-Featured Mural Installation: Raul Santos II
-other artists on exhibition: Kazilla, Reinier Gamboa, Elio Mercado (Evoca1), Dorandy Mercado, Ernesto Kunde, JeanPaul Mallozzi, Danny Ferrer, GG, Goop Massta, LEBO, Registered Artist, Alex Yanes, Meluka, Robert Jimenez

About The Leah Arts District
Hialeah’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 County’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, Miami’s artistic hubs, and other destination areas within Miami-Dade County. Because of it’s location and highly affordable price per square footage, Hialeah’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.

Miguel Rodez Art Projects invites you to the Opening Reception for the Visual Art Project on Saturday, May 16 during the Bird Road Art Walk. The Visual Poetry Project is as much about the viewer’s imagination as it is about the artwork on view. The Project invites viewers to comment, discuss, criticize or be inspired by what they see. Writers, poets, or simply those who enjoy reading will find themselves drawn to the Visual Poetry Project, a fine arts exhibit that explores meaning through a combination of text from viewers and visual stimulation from the artist.
