Our Second annual Pop Up Art Gallery event is taking place in the month of Yaya’s birthday in memory of her life and art.

Over 20 local South Florida artists in recovery, allies of the movement, families suffering the plight of substance use disorder, and families of loss will display, and their work will be auctioned for our cause.

 

We began our first Art as Healing program series in January 2021 and continue to run under the directive of local artist Michelle Swift. In October of 2021, we recently added Art as Healing to our monthly houseless care kit drive. Every piece of art created by community members during that time period through May 2022 will be displayed.

 

We continue to secure donations and count on the public’s support to fuel funds for our Art as Healing Rehab and Street Edition programming. ‘I Have Lived Once Before” is centered around Reincarnation with street art as a focus style …all reflected in Yaya’s legacy in the arts. Pieces created by Yaya in her lifetime will also be displayed in celebration of her life.

 

Artists will submit their best work to auction or sell through an on-site live auction. We will also host live Narcan training/distribution as part of our community harm reduction program, exciting raffles, and art vendors. Live art by Atomik, Live Music by DJ Simdica, and Eric Guitian from Mind&Melody.

 

Proceeds will benefit Yaya Por Vida’s work in the community for those seeking overdose prevention tools, substance use recovery, in treatment, in active recovery, families dealing with a struggling loved one, those that have suffered the loss of a loved one due to substance use or those actively using drugs to find healthy, positive outlets of expressions in the arts with cultural competency in mind.

We want to thank Archive79 for once again sponsoring and hosting our annual event. This event will take place on May 14th, 2022, from 6 pm to 9 pm at Archive 79 Gallery, 170 NE 79 Street, Miami, FL 33138.
