On 2nd Saturday, Wynwood Art Walk Night, visitors to Artformz will participate in an unusual project.

Artformz is putting on a collaborative, interactive, performance in the gallery’s project room where you become the artist…sort of.

You may add one of your personal items to a still life arrangement created by the artists. Photographer PJ Mills will arrange his signature lighting and shoot the composition. Prints will be displayed digitally and visitors will be able to order photographic prints they have helped create.

Paul & Mills will present their newest works in the main gallery.

All prints are signed by both artists who have dedicated personal interests in supporting often overlooked Hospice Care. We welcome everyone and urge participation in this very special event.

All proceeds will be donated to Hospice. Artformz is located at 171 NW 23rd Street, Miami, Florida 33127. 305 572 0040
