MIAMIStreet Art For Mankind is a week-long urban art event in Miami's Little River district that is focused on helping to stop child slavery.

It started on Friday with the opening of a massive exhibit of 16 containers featuring artwork by some 30 artists -- including Zurik from Colombia, Binho from Brazil, KinMx from Mexico and nine locals: Abstrk, CP1, Hoxxoh, Kazilla, Nate Dee, Remote, Surge, Trek6 and Yuhmi. 

State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle was a speaker during the opening of the exhibit. On Saturday, SAM planned "Canada Day" from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m., and on Sunday "Crear en Femenino" will host dance and workshops from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.  

All of the events are being held at 7401 Northwest Miami Court, and end Feb. 20. Tickets on EventBrite are $28. Organizers are committed to donating all of the proceeds of the art work sold to Satyarthi, the foundation of the Nobel Peace Prize winner Kailash Satyarthi.

SAM events will continue in Paris, Sao Paulo, Dubai and Seoul.
