The LAB 2020: Mentor Zoom Chat

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.

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.

The Summer Art Intensive takes place from July 7-July 30 Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays on ZOOM, from 1-3pm. Afterwards, their massive-scale photo mural, a collaborative collage, will be 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.
