“We are thrilled to announce the 5th Annual Art Africa Miami Arts Fair in the Historic Overtown.
The community is experiencing a timely and well-deserved renaissance. Art Africa Miami is a catalyst of this renaissance and I am looking forward to everyone coming out to experience the rebirth through art, architecture, and design,” said D. Neil Hall, an architect who is founder of the fair.
The AAMAF is also part of the Soul Basel and Art of Black Miami marketing vehicle that brings awareness to Black art for all perspectives that include African-American, Latin, Afro Cuban, Caribbean and African artistic and cultural exhibition and programming.
AAMAF is made possible through the support of District 5 Commissioner Keon Hardemon and Southeast Overtown Park West Community Redevelopment Agency (SEOPW CRA).

Showcases such as the annual Art Africa Miami Arts Fair, attracts visitors into the community while highlighting the wave of redevelopment that is taking place. “
