MIAMI, FLA.- On the morning of December 10, 2016, Pérez Art Museum Miami partnered with Los Angeles-based artist Kim Schoenstadt to organize a historic event – Now Be Here #3 – a gathering and photograph of South Florida female and female identifying contemporary artists. 305 artists braved the inclement weather to make history. This community gathering comes at a time when issues of gender equality and identity are at the forefront of cultural discourse in the United States.
