This Event Has Ended

On Saturday, May 13, The Wallflower Gallery will celebrate 20 years of creative interaction with a multi-media showcase of art, music, spoken word, dance, comedy, community speakers and lots of fun! The festivities will take place at Churchill’s with a 2 stage showcase. The event would be 18+.

The performance arrangements will feature some of The Wallflower Gallery’s previous showcase formats such as the Songwriters’ Series, Dynamic Duos, Voice & Soul and Interactive Improv Jams. We are working to bring together as many of the musicians, artists, poets, dancers and performers from The Wallflower Gallery’s history as possible. In addition we will include community speakers from local organizations who were active in The Wallflower Gallery, plus, we are reaching out to former staff and patrons as part of a BIG FAMILY REUNION!

This is not going to be a typical show and part of the appeal is to make it unique for the artists and audience involved. Each set will include special guests to expand the range of the music. Spoken word artists will join the bands for short pieces to enhance the spontaneity and creativity of the experience. The different formats will layer the performers together and provide a platform for interaction. At the same time, we are initiating some reunion performances and bringing some disbanded bands back together. With the Interactive Improv Jams, we are combining various performers and sparking inspiration with an experimental flavor. For 13 years, The Wallflower Gallery provided a home in Downtown Miami for artists to develop their craft and enhance their skills. Since the building was torn down in 2010, The Wallflower Gallery has bolstered artists and events through social media and showcase support. This event signifies the impact of The Wallflower Gallery beyond the physical building and demonstrates how the essence of collaborative creativity enriches our community and the individuals involved. Stay tuned - we have good things in motion

As a courtesy to The Wallflower Gallery’s legacy of all-ages showcases, the venue is allowing parents to bring their kids and attend the event from 4 pm to 8 pm. Admission is free for kids under 10. This will allow families to attend and experience the music, art and performances before the nighttime activities get more spirited. The event in general is 18+ with id, so plan accordingly and get ready for some fun!
