Sponsors: Art Live 2012 presented by the Art Live Fair, LLC ("Fair") is an interactive, performance based, contemporary "art happening" and fair in which artists and exhibitors are invited to share the creative process unfolding spontaneously in every form of artistic medium and to the extent possible, engage the fairgoers in the creative process. We like to say, don't just see art, be it! We encourage artists and exhibitors alike to step outside the four walls of their galleries, institutions, residencies and studios to join us in an uplifting coming together of art and community for cause. The Fair is a non-profit contemporary art fair with admission proceeds benefiting the Lotus House Women's Shelter, providing shelter, sanctuary, education and resources to empower homeless women and children to build safe, secure lives off the streets.

Children under 13 = $5

The Wynwood Art Fair of 2011 has blossomed into ART LIVE 2012, an annual extravaganza of live, interactive, and performance based art celebrating our collective oneness! The Sundari Foundation, Inc. invites you to become a Sponsor of ART LIVE 2012, this year's contemporary art "happening" and fair benefiting the Lotus House Women's Shelter on October 26-28, 2012. With last year's art fair heralded by the New Times as a "smashing success" in the "Top Five" art events of the year, get ready for ART LIVE and "don't just see art ~ be it" at our all new location at the Coconut Grove Convention Center.
Here are just some of the reviews from last year:
"The atmosphere was energetic and the sense of community palpable... Perhaps what was most impressive was to see so many families enjoying contemporary art, and enthusiastically embracing the edginess of the fair." New Times
It "stopped people in their tracks and gave them a new perspective..." Liz Tracy of NBC Miami
"So much FUNNNNN!!!" says Jessy Nite of Primary Flight, an artist collective participating in the Fair.
"It will be impossible to ignore, and it cannot be missed." Art Miami TV
"You can't spell "heart of the city" without "art". And the inaugural edition of the Fair proves it. We look forward to many more years of this great event." Miami New Times - Cultist
More than a fair, this year's ART LIVE Fair will be an "art happening" of unprecedented artistic dimension and heart, bringing together contemporary artists and community to uplift those in need. It is an opportunity to see and experience art first hand, featuring contemporary art performances, interactive art installations, and working "artist studios," alongside a diverse array of contemporary art museums, collections, galleries, live music and a taste of the area's distinctive flavors. ART LIVE 2012 will include a VIP Vernissage (5:30-7:30pm) and Launch Party (starting 7:30pm) on Friday night, October 26 that will offer a "first view" of this interactive art happening, including artist "tastings," chef's tastings from Miami's finest, champagne, merriment and more!
All proceeds of the Fair, Benefit Auction and Launch Party benefit Lotus House, serving women and children in need. With your support, Lotus House provides sanctuary, shelter and support to over 100 women and children in need on a daily basis in our newly expanded faciities, including a free health clinic. With access to medical and mental health care, counseling, job readiness training, computer classes, life skills building and a host of enrichment activities, the holistic education and support services at Lotus House provide women and children with the tools and resources they need to heal and grow, build the foundation for a safe, secure future, and blossom into who they are truly meant to be. Lotus House is about so much more than shelter, it is about transforming lives and your sponsorship truly makes everything possible.
Join us in launching this year's fall art season at ART LIVE by becoming a Sponsor, discover some truly great contemporary art, invite your friends and come prepared to learn, laugh, love and play! Thank you for your support!
