RAW Talent: Miami’s up and coming artists debut work at LMNT
RAW, an indie arts organization with offices in more than 60 cities worldwide, including Canada, London, and Australia, debuted the work of 22 of Miami’s up and coming artists last month.
The show took place in the heart of Miami’s thriving art community, Wynwood.
“We showcase local emerging artist of all kinds; music, film, performing arts, visual art, photography, fashion, accessories, hair and makeup,” said Melissa Hernandez, 27, Director and Coordinator of RAW’s showcase in Miami.
“We give these artists a chance to showcase their work to the public, sometimes it’s their first time showcasing their work ever.”
RAW’s mission is to provide artists in different mediums an opportunity to display their art and kick start their careers.
“RAW provides budding and established artists the ability to network, sell, and display their work before an audience,” said Hernandez.
“In Miami alone, RAW hosts a showcase of up and coming artists every other month at LMNT and has recently expanded to included Tokyo this year.”
Hernandez welcomed interested artists to participate in future events held by RAW.
“Artists submit work at RAWartists.org, it then gets sent to the director’s inbox. We go through every submission and look at the artist’s professionalism in the bio, creativity etc. We even go to their website and Facebook,” she said.
Recruitment for the next showcase on July 24th is underway, so if you feel that you have what it takes to display your work or know someone who definitely has what RAW is looking for, don’t hesitate to apply now.
“I always encourage artists to be creative when it comes to their space and their showcase itself,” said Hernandez. “They’re the ones that make the show amazing.”
