Art Box is holding an art exhibit for charity

The Art Box will be hosting an art show hoping to raise awareness and raising funds for several different organizations. The school has already hosted a few fundraisers for victims of Hurricane Irma and Mexico's earthquake. This upcoming event puts a spin on things, as each exhibiting artist has the opportunity to select which organization 50% of his or her sales will be donated to.

"I know I'm not the only one who thinks it's been hard to watch the news lately. With so many catastrophes going on all over the world, I felt a responsibility to organize an event to make a positive impact, no matter how small it may be," said Sofia del Rivero, owner and founder of the art school. 

"The fact that each artist is able to individually choose where a portion of their own profits will be going makes this experience as an exhibitor much more personal. And as an audience, what better way to support these amazing causes than by supporting local artists at the same time? By uniting with our local community, we are able to help those in need, no matter how far away they may be."

Sofia will be one of the exhibitors herself, along with Nathalie Fernandez, Magdalena Ramirez Wright, and other Art Box staff member, Johann C. Muñoz. Together, these Miami-based artists will be exhibiting a variety of mediums, including drawings, illustrations, photography, "zines," and even video. 50% of their sales will go to one of the following organizations: The Mexican Red Cross, Fondo Unido Mexico, The Fonkoze Foundation, and St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

The Opening Night of this fundraiser will take place at the Art Box studio, located in the Mayfair in Coconut Grove at 2911 Grand Ave, Suite 400E, on Friday, October 20 from 7:00 - 9:00 pm. 

It will be on display and artworks will be for sale until October 27. This event is free and open to the public and includes complimentary wine and light bites.

Art Box offers workshops for all ages on a regular basis, including Second Saturday Family Workshops, Third Thursday Art Nights, daily art lessons for kids and adults, birthday parties, seasonal camps, portfolio preparation courses, private events, and more.
