Antonia Wright on Art Live Fair's Hidden Music, Stage Diving, and High-Energy Playtime

With upwards of fifty individual artists, artist collaboratives, performance ensembles, dancers, musicians and writers, this year's dynamic lineup at the Art Live Fair promises a three-day immersion into the creative process fairgoers will long remember.

Beginning Friday at 5:30 p.m. and running through Sunday at the Coconut Grove Convention Center the ground-breaking event formerly known as Wynwood Art Fair is an art fair unlike any other in the nation.

Think of it as an intense, hands-on creative playground where visitors both young and young-at-heart can look at, hear, touch, taste, feel, love art and above all unleash their creative side, all while supporting Miami's Lotus House women's shelter, say organizers.

We talked to artist Antonia Wright, one of event's curators, about the edgy, wacky, and unique art on display this weekend.
