Yuval Ofir of Yo Miami, an artist collective-occupied gallery that opened in late May, says the collective's first Average Joe Art Sale was a hit. As a result, Average Joe Art Sale: The Somewhat Above Average Edition will take place on Sunday and like the first sale, will include local bands, food trucks and artists.
As Ofir puts it in the event invitation, "Let's face it, most of us can't hang with the De La Cruz's and Rubells of the world. We're resigned to putting up our kids' work on the fridge or buying some not-horrible mass produced Target art to decorate our homes. NO MORE!! Come out to Yo Space and aside from having a good time playing ping pong on our custom table, smoking hookah, and/or hobnobbing, check out some great works by local artists."
|ChrisRiggsForMayor will be selling works such as this one at Average Joe Art Sale at Yo Miami.|
The event presented by Yo Miami, will include resident artists as well as newcomers selling original work, limited edition prints, merchandise, apparel - all priced under $250.
