Join us for the opening of Locust Art Builders (LAB) High School & LAB MFA.
For four weeks, 20 high school-aged artists from across Miami-Dade County will work under the mentorship of established contemporary visual artists to learn about the practical and creative aspects of mounting a public exhibition, which they will develop and produce in collaboration with thei
r peers. The LAB program encourages participants to develop ideas and produce work collaboratively, resulting in an exhibition that is produced as the result of a team effort. This invaluable opportunity allows young artists to widen their perspectives, connect with other artists and arts professionals, and gain the experience of making an exhibition in an established visual arts space.
As part of our LAB:MFA program, one artist or two-person collaboration is selected to execute an exhibition in our project gallery. The artist(s) work over the course of four weeks to realize their proposed exhibition.
