Threading the City

Fiber Artists Miami Association (FAMA) wants to celebrate and mobilize the textile arts community with our first city-wide event Threading the City. Artists are a driving force in recharging communities and our economy. Recent data has proven that artists are drivers in placemaking. FAMA understands that the main ingredients to creative placemaking are creative initiators consisting of a team, building on our collective expertise, mobilizing support from organizations, community engagement, and creating partnerships. As such, Threading the City is an investment in an economic, cultural, and social platform that will help revitalize and showcase the extraordinary talent of local and international textile artists. The event serves as a platform to unite local and international artists, curators, institutions, and educators in dialogue to demystify the world of contemporary textile art.

Threading the City is funded by The Ellies, Miami’s visual arts awards, presented by Oolite Arts.

LIFE AT STREET LEVEL

Life at Street Level Hosted by HARTvest Project @ Pinecrest Gardens Gardens

The urban fabric is a metaphor for city topography. Just like textiles can come in many weaves, colors, and textures, the physical form of cities is innumerable. This provocative exhibit interweaves fiber with photography, photo collage, and installation works to capture an instant view of Miami at the street level that conveys urban resilience.

Location:

The location is Pinecrest Gardens, South Florida Cultural Arts Park. This historic landmark will surround the various artworks with rare and exotic tropical vegetation creating a juxtaposition between the urban views and nature
