The Third Annual Overtown Rhythm & Arts Festival, organized, planned and executed by volunteers from the Overtown Rhythm & Arts Festival Inc., a fiscal sponsor of The Miami Foundation and local leaders of the Overtown Community. Together, they aim to celebrate the rich history of one of Miami's earliest historically black communities and the place where some of music's biggest legends, such as Ella Fitzgerald, Duke Ellington and Billie Holiday, performed and stayed. The painting features the talented jazz vocalist, Nicole Henry, singing in the main street of Overtown, depicting exactly what will happen during the 3rd Annual Overtown Rhythm and Arts Festival, coming up on Saturday, June 22, 2013. The painting was created by local artist Katey Penner, who participated as an exhibitor at the 2012 Overtown Rhythm and Arts Festival and has always been interested in depicting scenes of music, Miami and Overtown.
