Locust Projects is pleased to announce an open call to Miami-Dade high school students for a chance to participate in Locust Art Builders (LAB), a collaborative exhibition at the organization's visual art exhibition space in Miami's Design District.
For four weeks, 15 to 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 their 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. The exhibition will culminate with a public opening reception on Saturday, July 13, 2019.
LAB promotes contemporary art and project-based learning as a means to encourage creativity, critical analysis, and problem solving, while building communication skills. The LAB program extends Locust Projects’ nearly 20-year commitment to experimentation and innovation in artistic practice to the next generation of South Florida artists.
