Miami Young Arts Is The Future

As one generation (digital millennial’s) begin to transition into another re-generation (happens every twenty years) — we see this also in the college classroom — everything is going to be just fine.

Racism? Don’t be silly, dude.

Sexism? What’s that — there’s no such thing as gender.

Immigration? We got this.

Climate change? We got this, relax.

The Youth Shall Prevail

When it comes to the future, look to the young for the youth will always win the future. Turning to the art of the young, one actually sees and hears a very old Oscar Wilde maxim: “Life imitates Art far more than Art imitates Life.” And the future looks bright, just like the art on display this week in the Frank Gehry designed gallery on 2100 Biscayne. The future looks colorful. Socially aware. It looks less selfish than one would think.

Miami & National Young Arts Week

Miami Young Arts week is both a wonderful culmination of work accomplished and at the same time a christening of a new year.

A new beginning.

National YoungArts Week is YoungArt’s signature program. This week in Miami, and also New York and Los Angeles, there is a smorgasbord of programming across the ten disciplines that Young Arts supports. Home base for Young Arts is in Miami, in the old Baccardi building — and if you didn’t know, Young Arts is arguably one of the best, if not the best, for cultivating national artistic high school level talent.

Enjoy some images from opening night at the reception for the Miami Young Arts week. They don’t do the exhibit justice but it’s a teaser.

Go check out it for yourself at Young Arts, 2100 Biscayne Blvd.
