Little LAB stems from Locust Projectsâ€™ annual LAB program, which revolves around a collaborative group exhibition by South Florida high school students. 2013 marked the 4th year of the program and included 25 students, selected through an open call. Under the direction of practicing contemporary visual artists Monica Lopez de Victoria of the TM Sisters and Loriel Beltran, students were given the opportunity to create a collaborative exhibition in a public venue and manage all aspects of its production during the three week summer intensive. Students also visited art institutions on guided field trips and interacted with members of the local art community during scheduled visits. LAB graduates will be Little LAB artist mentors for the day.
