The HANGAR | Gallery & Arts Initiative

Welcome to the official blog and media hub for The HANGAR | Gallery & Arts Initiative. Located in the Wynwood Arts District, The Hangar is dedicated to the collective movement of creative exhibition and seeks to open the lines of communication between artist, patron and community.

Miami Fashion Week 2013

From March 20th through the 23rd, Miami hosted its 15th annual fashion week! Just in case our reader’s were not able to attend the event personally, some staff from The Hangar paid the event a visit, and made sure to bring back all the details.

Pop up boutiques were spread all throughout the event space. High end brands like L’lmpasse were at arm’s length, and the displays we all executed beautifully.  What made the pop up boutiques all the more engaging was the opportunity to get an inside look on how the featured pieces were created. The designers of each boutique were ready to answer any questions in regards to their collections and share the stories of how each piece was created and what inspired them.
