Explore Downtown Miami’s Vibrant
Arts and Culture Scene

Por: Kara Franker

O vibrante universo cultural e artístico de Miami continua a evoluir a passos rápidos.

O que começou como um punhado de espaços artísticos, há apenas uma década, explodiu em mais de 30 organizações prósperas de artes e cultura e mais de 60 estúdios de artistas no centro de Miami sozinhos. E o momento da comunidade não mostra sinais de desaceleração.

Art is everywhere in Miami—from the walls that line the Miami Riverwalk to impressive historical sculptures standing in Bayfront Park. Downtown Miami is home to a wide range of art in unexpected places, including pedestrian walkways, inside hotels and even showcased in several Metrorail and Metromover Stations.

Let’s take a closer look at the dynamic offerings Downtown Miami has in the form of unique art and cultural experiences.

Museus

Situated directly on Biscayne Bay and housed in a state-of-the-art campus designed by world-renowned architects Herzog & de Meuron, Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) features 200,000 sprawling square feet of artistic wonder. It’s a playground for adults and kids alike. Think experiential art, up-close-and-personal exhibits, forays into film and education, and a shaded outdoor veranda with hanging gardens and panoramic water views. PAMM is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and is open late on Thursdays, until 9 p.m.

Joining PAMM in what’s known as Museum Park, the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science is scheduled to open in the summer of 2016 in its new home in Downtown. Expect interactive exhibits and exciting learning adventures as the museum showcases basic concepts in science and technology. The current location in Coconut Grove is open Monday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Located nearby, the Miami Children’s Museum is situated on Watson Island, just off of the MacArthur Causeway, leading out to Miami Beach. A perfect way to spend the day and entertain the kids, the facility includes 14 galleries, classrooms, an auditorium and permanent exhibits like a cruise ship, giant sandcastle, 900-gallon marine tank, music studio and more. The museum is open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Situated in the heart of Downtown, HistoryMiami is located on historic Flagler Street and preserves exhibitions showcasing Miami’s rich history. For a unique and educational take on Miami’s past, book one of the many city tour options (walk, bike, boat or coach) and learn from a distinguished historical scholar. Additionally, HistoryMiami is a Smithsonian Institution Affiliate. Hours are Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on weekends from 12 noon to 5 p.m. Closed on Mondays.

Nestled inside the historic Freedom Tower in Downtown, the MDC Museum of Art + Design showcases visual art and design. Attend one of the many year round events, including lectures, symposiums and art exhibitions. Group tours are available during gallery hours (Wednesday through Sunday from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.).
