On May 14th, twenty-seven up and coming young artists from South Miami Middle Community School went to Miami Children’s Hospital to present “An Evening with the Artists” art show. The show exhibited original artwork such as etchings and digital photography self portraits.
The artists were on hand to discuss their artwork with other exhibitors, their families, hospital staff and patients. “The one reason I make artwork is to see the different reactions of people,” said 14-year-old art exhibitor, Noah Farid.
