Art Africa Miami Arts Fair set to weave art and culture into the Fabric of the #HistoricOvertown cultural movement
MIAMI, FL — The Urban Collective continues to invigorate the cultural landscape of the Historic Overtown community with the anticipation of the 2014 Art Africa Miami Arts Fair (AAMAF) beginning Wednesday, Dec. 3-7, 2014, from 7 to 10 p.m. at 801 N.W. Third Ave., Miami, Fla.
Immediately following the opening night of Soul Basel Overtown: A Celebration of Art, Music and Culture in Colored Town that will showcase the works of the late Overtown artist Purvis Young at the Lyric Theatre. The AAMAF gallery opens daily from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
The AAMAF remains relevant in its fourth year, and continues to push boundaries, leading the way for innovation, creativity and inclusion of some of the top art artist influencers of the African and Caribbean Diaspora.
This year’s fair falls under the marketing campaign and moniker of #HistoricOvertown-SoulBasel and was orchestrated by The Urban Collective CEO, Neil Hall, as a collaborative partnership between the City of Miami Commissioner Keon Hardemon, Southeast Over-town Parkwest Community Re-development Agency and the Black Archives of art cultural offerings throughout Overtown during Art Basel in December. #HistoricOvertownSoulBasel celebrates Overtownmusic, art and cultural vibe. The Urban Collective is a sustainable life-style design brand driven by our passion for innovative design, art, and cultural exchange with partnering skilled artisans in developing countries who design beautifully hand crafted products and artifacts.
This year’s effort continues to sustain the dynamic discourse of the AAMAF narrative and artistic strands of Black and Caribbean culture revolution boldly stated by cultural influencer, Neil Hall.
