Photographs from the 2nd Annual Art of Transformation in Opa Locka on 11/15/13

2nd Annual Art of Transformation: Celebrating The New Opa-Locka at Opa-locka Executive Airport Private Hangar 51 on Friday, November 15, 2013.  The Opa-locka Community Development Corporation (OLCDC) hosted a wonderful evening dedicated to the historic past, present and bright future of the Opa-locka community. The 2nd annual fundraising event celebrated the revitalization plan to create visual, physical, and economically-sustainable design that involves and empowers residents, while converting the city into a true “Community of Choice.”

We got to see a special preview exhibit by renowned New York-based photographer Hunter Barnes (presenting portraits from his recent residency in Opa-locka), and an architectural installation by Germane Barnes. American hip-hop duo Black Violin performed an eclectic mix of Jazz, hip-hop, funk, and blue grass with Kev Marcus on his violin and Wil B on his viola, they were absolutely amazing.
