MIAMI, FL – 16 Mar, 2016 – Just My Height Art Shows® brings fine art to young children’s eye level by displaying professional quality fine art at 36 inches high. Talking Off the Wall Magazine has been documenting the South Florida
street-art scene for the past two years. These two organizations have joined forces to produce “Secret Doors,” a fine art show that will proudly feature 15 of South Florida’s best street artists and muralists to benefit ArtCares for Kids.
Sponsored by The Florida House Experience, VITAS Healthcare, Artist & Craftsman Supply, Aventura Mall and others, will feature family friendly street- and mural-style artwork. It opens on Friday, April 8, 2016, from 6 to 10 p.m. at Wynwood Warehouse Project, 450 NW 27th Street, Miami, Florida, 33127.
The opening will feature games and hands-on art activities designed to engage patrons with the exhibits. Persons of all ages—from 2 to 102—are welcome to enjoy complementary light bites and age-appropriate beverages. Admission to the show is $15 for adults in advance and $20 at the door. Children are FREE.
ArtCares for Kids, a Miami-based organization that takes art activities to children undergoing oncological and other intensive medical treatments at Jackson Memorial Holtz Children’s Hospital and Baptist Children’s Hospital, will directly benefit from the proceeds raised by the show. ArtCares for Kids will get copies of a special coloring book comprised of the art work being shown at the event. Several copies of the “Secret Doors” coloring book will be given to these children in an effort to raise their spirits and inspire them by keeping them busy with bedside art projects.
“This art show will provide us with a great opportunity to connect with members of the community who love art and who love children,” says Founder Liz Portuondo of ArtCares for Kids. The clinical art therapist adds,
“We are especially excited about the coloring book. It will be an awesome tool for the kids we work with to explore the work of local artists, and it will provide a great tool for self-expression, especially while in situations in which the kids often feel like they don’t have a lot of control.”
The 15 “Secret Doors” artists are (in alphabetical order by artist name):
8Bit Lexicon G.G. Jenny Perez
Aquarela Kazilla REMOTE
Luis Berros Monique Lassooij Surge
DaveL Ernesto Maranje Ruben Ubiera
