With cooler weather and Miami’s “in” season almost here, I thought it might be appropriate to give us all a jump start on Miami Art Week, by listing some places where we can see art. Year round. In our own back yard. Without crowds. For FREE!
Other than the obvious Wynwood, there are so many places to see art in Miami. Thanks to Miami-Dade County Art in Public Places and astute business owners who also happen to be art aficionados, there are plenty of places to see art in Miami. In no particular order, and by no means all inclusive, here are a few of my favorites:
Aventura Mall art collection – Better known for world class shopping, Aventura Mall has an extensive and impressive art collection
Institute of Contemporary Art – In the Miami Design District, this museum is ALWAYS free. The art installations are sometimes trippy, but always thought provoking.
Miami Beach – I think the ocean and colorful life guard stands on the beach are art enough, but Miami Beach Art in public spaces include sea inspired as well as modern and art deco pieces.
Miami Design District Art Tours – In addition to being able to see great, fun architecture for free as you stroll through the MDD, they have regular art tours in conjunction with Arts Encounters.
PAMM – Perez Art Museum Miami free second Saturdays. The second Saturday of each month you get to see their art exhibits for FREE!
Is your favorite free art space in the northern part of Miami-Dade not on the list? Please share it with us!
