For four weeks, 25 young artists from high schools across Miami-Dade County will be invited to work with established contemporary artists in a dynamic online program to learn about the practical and creative aspects of mounting a public exhibition on a highly visible exterior space near Locust Projects' gallery in the Miami's Design District.
LAB Mentor Meet and Greet welcomes members and leaders in the arts community, including professional artists, teachers, and other creative professionals. Visitors receive an exclusive sneak peek of the exhibition in progress, and are able to have an intimate meet and greet with the student artists. The event serves as an opportunity for the students to network and learn more about arts careers while becoming more comfortable speaking about their work and developing confidence in displaying their work to the public.
View the resulting project from this year's LAB, a four week online collaboration by twenty-five selected teens.
Their massive-scale photo mural is a collaborative collage presented on the highly visible exterior space adjacent to Locust Projects' gallery in the Miami's Design District! Everyone will be able to view safely 24/7 for approximately two weeks.
Celebrating its 10th Anniversary year, LAB encourages students to develop ideas and work collaboratively. This unique, hands-on program invites creative teens to widen their perspectives, connect with peers and established arts professionals, learn about creative careers, build their portfolio, and gain the behind-the-scenes experience of producing a collaborative project from scratch.
On July 8, 2020 we will reopen BY APPOINTMENT ONLY, following CDC health and safety guidelines and County, City and State government mandates including required face-coverings, increased sanitization, and social distancing measures.
Appointments available Wed-Sat, 12-6PM. Schedule your appointment here!
