Locust Projects presents The LAB (Locust Arts Builders)

Opening reception: July 14, 2012. 7:00 p.m.
Through August 1, 2012.

Locust Projects presents a collaborative exhibition by a select group of South Florida High School students. Under the direction of renowned contemporary artist Monica Lopez de Victoria of the TM Sisters, sixteen local high school students will experience the invigorating and arduous process of conceiving and executing original artworks.

Participating artists are Angelica Castillo, Steven Espinosa, Tiziana Felice, Francesca Fine, Valerie Franco, Samantha Grenier, Aurora Lazaro, Stepanie Michelle Navarrete, Angelica Perez, Tiffany Pomares, Sage Roatta, Britney Leigh Segermeister, Arlene Soto, Savannah Grace Vieth and Ziqi Wang.

The students, currently attending American Senior High, Design and Architecture Senior High, Dr. Michael M. Krop High, Gulliver Academy, Hialeah High School and New World School of the Arts, were selected from an open call by a committee of local art professionals.

As a hallmark that makes Locust Projects stand out from other art venues, the organization embraces cutting-edge exhibitions and innovation in art. In furtherance of the not-for-profit’s fourteen-year commitment to providing an approachable arts venue for the South Florida community, for the third year, Locust Projects presents exciting new program in which a young generation of artists are given the opportunity to create a collaborative exhibition in a public venue.

The project will be developed and exhibited in Locust Projects’ 5,000 square foot space in Miami’s Design District and culminate in a show, open to the public. The goal is to promote contemporary art and project-based learning as a means to encourage creativity, critical analysis, and problem solving, while building communication skills. This unique initiative will allow young artists to learn the practical and exciting aspects of creating a public exhibition in collaboration with their peers.
