In an attempt to open the door to the local art scene and invite the everyday average Joe’s to experience its magic, Yo Miami organized the soft opening of its new home gallery in June, Yo Space. To celebrate the occasion there was an indoor market of sorts where 12 artists were able to display their wares. The artists sold everything from original works, to limited edition prints and other merchandise. The only rule: No individual item could have a sale price over $250.
After the overwhelmingly positive response to the first Average Joe Sale, Yo Miami has decided to jump right in and make it a monthly event. The next one will be taking place on Sunday, September 23 from 3 P.M. to 9 P.M. There will be a fresh batch of 16 artists showing their work, including some returning favorites from previous editions, and our resident artists Lorie Setton, Vince Herrera and Kazilla.
Jolt Radio will be helping us bring some music to the festivities with a DJ spinning throughout the day. Also Ms. Cheezious will be out front serving up grilled cheese and other tasty treats with the crew from Subvert Ales providing their unique brews to wash them down.
Here are the deets:
