hARTvest project is Miami's first "art immersive" venture, dedicated to stimulate, nurture, foster and promote public interest in the arts via creative and innovative educational strategies that shake up the status quo.
ART MATTERS IN OUR WORLD!
We believe in art as a high expression of the human spirit. We are convinced that the appreciation of the world through the arts allow us to deepen our understanding of the lives of others, change our trivial view of only utilitarian aspects of our environment for a more humane attitude, extend our capacity to comprehend the human spirit and the essence of things and have the ability to plant positive values in citizenship. We believe that appreciating art makes you better!
We offer "art immersive experiences" with creative and compelling content...we are galleries's back stage!.
We not only sell art, we sell the experience of “enjoying art”.
We are opening new creative channels and points of contact between the art world and the general public. Through our creative educational programs hARTvest project enables and empowers you to appreciate, enjoy, love and collect art.
We believe that to be an art collector is a great responsibility. You have to be passionate about art and combine knowledge with an instinctive feeling. It is more than just buying art. Collecting art is creating patrimony. Consider the legacy you may leave for your children and their children. An art collector becomes part of the cultural history of his time!.
“The purpose of Art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls.”
hARTvest project was founded in 2014 by artist Carola Bravo. Carola holds a PhD in Architecture and a Master in Art History. Her art work has been exhibited at major museums, institutions and art galleries around the world. She is a Titular Professor with more than 20 years of academic experience at the Design, Architecture and Art Department at Simón Bolívar University in Venezuela, where she was Head of the Art Section and Chair of the Architecture School. Bravo has been the recipient of numerous awards both in Venezuela and abroad; and is well known for her immersive site-specific installations, video-installations, urban interventions and intimate studio artworks that address space, changing territories and their geometry.
Most of the events organized by hARTvest project take place in CASA BALLERINA. Carola’s home and studio becomes a space for private gatherings, meetings ad reunions. Between an impressive collection of art by important Latin American artists and an eclectic arrangement of furnishings, books and accessories, guest-artists talk about their work and art experts give lectures and conferences guiding participants through a one-of a-kind “journey of art”. Located in Pinecrest, this home was designed in 1952 by nationally recognized Miami architect Robert Fitch-Smith who was greatly influenced by Frank Lloyd Wright. Fitch-Smith is considered one of the MIMO architects. He was the first Dean of Architecture at the University of Miami, as well as Director of the famous INTERAMA project. CASA BALLERINA was selected by THE VILLAGERS, the oldest non-profit historic preservation organisation in Miami-Dade County, for preserving the spirit of the 50s while maintaining the original architect’s design; and it has been also a filming set for one of Nickelodeon’s famous TV programs.
Besides our guest artists and historians, a very interesting group of experts from independent organizations and companies provide crucial help as allies in this art venture. Their participation, advice and contributions are key to the success of this project.
