South Florida’s Art Season officially kicked off last Friday, October 24, with the unveiling of the 43rd Annual ChamberSOUTH South Miami Art Festival official poster.
The VIP event, Carnaval de Ouro, brought together artists and representatives from some of the biggest names in art philanthropy, including First National Bank of South Miami, Baptist Health, and ChamberSOUTH, who has been organizing South Florida’s longest running free art festival for 43 years.
The poster, selected out of dozens of other submittals and released as a signed and numbered limited edition print, was created by Ariel Celestino Hernandez, a Cuban professional painter with over 30 years of experience who is also known as ‘The Painter of the Curves’ for his unique style.
“I am really grateful to ChamberSOUTH for the fact that they chose my poster as the one to represent this year’s ChamberSOUTH South Miami Art Festival,” said Hernandez, whose family flew in from Cuba to attend the ceremony.
The 43rd Annual ChamberSOUTH South Miami Art Festival will kick off the festival season in South Florida on Saturday and Sunday, November 1st and 2nd, from 10:00am to 6:00pm, on the historic Sunset Drive in the heart of South Miami (Between US1 and Red Road).
