Please join us as we continue our six-month long #HIALEAHNOW Series at the Retro Future Night presented by Jameson! It’s 2017 and we have self-driving cars, Facetime, Snapchat filters and SpaceX! We’re living in the post-space age and we’re about to go to Mars. Let’s celebrate the fantasy and excitement of the post-modern 1960s and pay homage to its vision of our future. This “Retro Future” indoor New Year’s party will be located in one of Leah Art’s District’s coolest new locations and will feature interactive CircX performers and Miami’s own time traveler straight from the Bermuda triangle, Otto Von Schirach. Filmgate Interactive will immerse you into a virtual world and Virtual Relief will create video mapping installations that will completely transform the space. We’re in the future… let’s celebrate!

About The Leah Arts District
Hialeah’s Southeastern industrial corridor rose to prominence during the 1980s as one of the largest and busiest areas of production and manufacturing in Florida. As a result of modernization combined with the effects of outsourcing, the uses that were once prevalent in the area dissipated and this particular area was all but abandoned.
Since that time, a medley of different uses has been incorporated into the area including a heavy presence of some of Miami-Dade County’s most prolific thrift stores.
These thrift stores have been instrumental in introducing Hialeah to an entire generation of antique lovers and artists. The Hialeah Artist Live/Work Overlay District, also known as The Leah Arts District, enjoys a strategic proximity to the newly proposed Hialeah Market Station development project, Miami’s artistic hubs, and other destination areas within Miami-Dade County. Because of it’s location and highly affordable price per square footage, Hialeah’s new Artist Live / Work District is in a position to play a vital and important role in the artistic and cultural development of not only Hialeah, but the entire South Florida community.
