Void Projects

Downtown Miami

If you'd like to meet local artists and see how life is lived on a smaller, more modest scale in Miami's creative pockets, visit this arts collective – run by artist Axel Void – where resident artists paint and hold exhibitions (by visiting artists) and organise free life drawing classes for the public (Thursdays from 6.30pm) and movie screenings.
