Yo Miami’s 4th Year Anniversary Bash 5/24/15

Yo Miami turns four with a celebration of Miami’s top talents!

From its gallery/artist collective space in Little Haiti the organization has continued to grow as a bridge between the creative community and businesses, creating new opportunities benefitting all involved. Finding a lack of resources aimed at educating the public about the evolution of the Miami art scene, Yo Miami is now launching its own Permanent Collection.

From the concept drawing, the massive development will create a walled perimeter with arched gateways, creating a mediterranean walled city look.
