The last two years I have spent the first week of December in Miami for a residency in the Overtown community at Art Africa!   I want to thank Miami architect & developer Neil Hall for the opportunity to participate!   Also I want to acknowledge all of the hard work of the staff, administrators, and citizens of Overtown for making Art Africa a successful and significant exhibition! Musically & Artistically Yours,  Lavon Pettis
