House of Art Hosted a Trilogy of Events Showcasing Local and International Talent During Miami Art Week 2014

MIAMI, Dec. 15, 2014 — (PRNewswire) — House of Art hosted three signature events during one of the busiest weeks for the art community, Miami Art Week 2014. The annual event has not only infused Miami's booming art scene, but has also opened the doors to developing the arts within the local communities. Today, art galleries like House of Art are bringing arts education into the very fabric of the communities they serve, partnering with schools, civic groups, non-profit organizations and businesses to create and provide opportunities for students and emerging artists.

On Thursday, Dec. 4, House of Art held an exclusive Vernissage in honor of the 20 students chosen to exhibit from Miami Arts Charter School (MAC), located in Miami and Homestead, FL.  The exhibit, Young at ARTs, featured truly exceptional work from a variety of media. Part of the proceeds from the exhibit will benefit the House of Art Youth Program.

On Friday, Dec. 5, the gallery presented "Future of Fashion," a fashion show produced by and featuring students of DesignLab Miami. The show showcased wearable fashion made from unconventional materials and recycled items. The students, ages 5 to 15, are no strangers to fashion shows. Their collections have been on runways in local schools, at the Miami Children's Museum and at local organizations' fundraisers.

On Saturday, Dec. 6, House of Art showcased We Live Here 2, an exhibit by Madrid-based advertising and industrial photographer Miguel Vallinas. Based on Vallinas' photographic exhibit, Second Skins, which imagines clothes animals would choose for themselves if they could, We Live Here 2 shows an anthropomorphic blend of animals, fashion and the human form.
