Visual Collaborative Art Exhibition, Miami 2008!

MIAMI, FL – Art enthusiast, community writers and various artists gathered on Saturday, April 12, 2008 to celebrate the opening of the week long art exhibition, April 12th-19th, in Miami called “Visual Collaborative.” Produced by Adeave studios and Icy Public Relations, the yearly event hosted six [6] artists at the exclusive art event opening. Over 350 people were in attendance at the Undercurrent Arts, 2563 North Miami Avenue Miami, FL, the location where the event was held.

Artists for the 2008 Visual Collaborative Art Exhibition were: Ade Olufeko [New York], Dawn Okoro [Texas], Jens Karlsson [New York], Linda Zacks [New York], Miko Simmons [Minnesota] and Tiphanie Brooke[Arizona]. Simmons’ work was the talk of the evening as it pushed the envelope with provacative art that challenged society’s concept of sexuality. Indeed, it was definitely the highlight of the evening drawing over 35 people to his work, at one time!
