Happy Monday Luvs! Hope everyone enjoyed a fantastic weekend! I am always trying to expose my boys to the arts as well as something new and Sunday afternoon that wanting led us to the Art of Black Miami Art Basel 'It Ain't Over" Pop Up Art Gallery and today I'm sharing our experience with all of you!
The Art of Black Miami Pop UpArt Gallery was presented by One United Back and was held at the New Overtown Performing Arts Center (OPAC), in Overtown Florida. The event was free and open to the public and a great way to close out Art Basel with my boys. Allow me to share my favorite pieces with you.
This was one of the first looks that caught my eye as soon as we entered the gallery. It was the colors and the symbolizing of peddling away that first jumped out at me. My toddler was drawn to a man on a bike.
Does this even need an explanation? Both looks are symbolizing entertainment in both the old and new state. Music past and present.
For me this portrait symbolized the ode to the Black Woman with a little Beyoncé Lemonade twist! What do you see when you look at it?
Such a beautiful portrayal of the Black Family. Strong, Caring, and so Full of Love!
This was probably one of the most eye catching pieces on display. Here you have a young boy with a very powerful weapon. This immediately brought to mind the black on black crime happening in so many of our neighborhoods. the way America see's our young black men, as well as the all too common occurrence of black men being killed by police. Powerful Indeed!
