“During my time at PULSE, I refocused the fair to engage with the greater community in Miami, and now having co-founded a residency program, I get to do what I love—work directly with artists.
YoungArts presented a perfect opportunity to combine my past and present endeavors to bring artists, nurtured here in Miami, to a global audience that looks to discover up-and-coming artists at PULSE,” said Helen Toomer.
