Hampton Art Lovers Presents: Point Comfort Art Fair and Exhibition, sponsored by Southeast Overtown/Park West CRA. Located at the Historic Ward Rooming House Gallery. “Point Comfort” will showcase African American contributions to American fine art. The fair is inspired by the history and legacy of The theme of the 400th year commemoration of the first Africans brought to American shores as enslaved human beings in 1619 at Point Comfort, Virginia. Point Comfort Art Fair will inspire the appreciation of African-American fine art, as we honor the history of African Americans to the arts since 1619.

Hampton Art Lovers believes that understanding culture, whether our own or others’ is becoming increasingly vital in the modern world. Hampton Art Lovers believe that through culture and education we can improve our communities and communities all over the world. The Historic Ward Rooming House, which is owned by the City of Miami South East Overtown/Park West CRA, has a rich socially significant history. It is an honor to bring Point Comfort Art Fair to this space. Built in the 1900s by an African-American family with Bahamian roots (Shaddrack and Victoria Ward), the Ward Rooming House served as a home for both African American and Native Americans who needed a safe place to sleep at night. In the 1940s and 50s it was known for hosting various civic groups and became the “Club House”. It was designated a historic site by the City of Miami in 2006 and fully restored in 2010. Now it serves as a gallery operated by Hampton Art Lovers.

Admission is free. Special event hours vary. Please see website for detailed information.
