Art is authentically a part of #HistoricOvertown’s soul that has a history of contributions from artists like Purvis Young, Gene Tinney, Adonis Parker and others who continue to create energy for the Historic Overtown community. Architect and thought leader behind the AAMAF, D. Neil Hall, AIA continues to be at the forefront nurturing the narrative that art and culture is the vital resource to transform the Overtown community.
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 generous support of District 5’s, Commissioner Keon Hardemon and Southeast Overtown Park West Community Redevelopment Agency.
