Welcome to Our Vision

Who We Are

Young Artist Initiative is a movement aimed at contributing a unique substance to the landscape of culture and art in Miami while empowering the city’s rising young artists.

Our Latest Exhibition:

Complements & Dichotomies

Young Artist Initiative presented Complements & Dichotomies, a 3-day exhibition organized by the Young Artist Initiative in partnership with Lincoln Road’s #OnLincoln series. The exhibition featured 14 emerging designers and artists. All participating artists were presented with the challenge of interpreting the exhibition’s central thesis: How do aesthetic and functionality converge in the creation of beauty?

So what happens?

Event Model

One Mission

Empower young, talented and passionate artists by showcasing their work to the city. YAI encourages artists to co-exist.


The Young Artist Initiative provides a place for everyone, from designers and DJ’s, to architects, painters, and live singers. At Young Artist Initiative, every art form finds its way.

Innovative at its roots

The groundbreaking element of the Young Artist Initiative is that no event is the same. Different venues, artists, and conceptual bases to create a new experience every time.

A Different Kind of Night Out

YAI provides an emphasis on social interaction between artists and attendees creating the perfect combination of entertainment, culture, and art.
