Chairman Jean Monestime and the Uptown Avenue 7 Community Redevelopment Agency presented the inaugural Uptown Avenue 7 Art Bazaar
On Saturday, Nov. 12, from 2:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., at the Arcola Lakes Library Plaza, 8240 NW 7th Avenue, Miami, the Miami-Dade County Commission Chairman Jean Monestime and the Uptown Avenue 7 Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) presented the inaugural Uptown Avenue 7 Art Bazaar.
This free event utilized art as an economic generator for businesses in the area. "The festival is appropriate for all ages and will serve as a visual vehicle to preserve heritage, to foster community engagement, and as a platform to diversify the artistic landscape in the western world, said Chairman Monestime."
Art lovers ventured into Miami Urban Contemporary Experience (MUCE)'s iconic Pop-up Pallet exhibition that featured artists from heritage neighborhoods and surrounding areas. They were also able to enjoy the family fun, the music provided by Larry Dogg and Maryel Epps, the Kid's zone and delicious food.
The Uptown Avenue 7 CRA has been working hard to position Northwest 7th Avenue as a leading location for small business development and growth. Northwest 7th Avenue has a proud history of supporting small community-oriented businesses. We’re inviting everyone to come out and enjoy a unique experience in one of Miami’s great communities, said Uptown Avenue 7 CRA Chairwoman Dr. Mae D Bryant.
