Cultural Art Flares up Miami Beach
Summer brings hot beaches, warm waters and a series of cultural events for Miami Beach. Miami Beach, already being the cultural epicenter of South Florida, can expect even more displays of cultural magnificence this summer as events in the workings are set to entertain condo and home owning residents. The summer is ignited by the flocking home of the condo dwelling "snowbirds" and the increased activity of youthful residents returning home from school. Let's peruse events that await tourists and residents in Miami and South Beach.
Artwork and architecture throughout Miami's art deco scene and condo design owes its beauty to early twentieth century architect Lawrence Murray Dixon. Dixon's groundbreaking work is on display at the Bass Museum until May 11th. Visit the origins of Miami's famous sultry style and pay homage to the creative genius that makes South Florida so unique.
Throughout South Florida's vast array of cultural diversity, a single culture has a potent influence on the beauty of Miami culture. Cuban culture has transformed South Florida from a New England winter haven to a bustling metropolis of both diverse culture and commerce. One of Cuban America's most celebrated artists Wilfredo Lam will have his works on display at the Miami Art Museum in Downtown Miami.
Additionally at the Miami Art Museum, view Cuban-Dominican Quisqueya Henriquez's inspiring art collection acquired over an illustrious fifteen year long career. The beauty of this artist's work is his wide range of talents from sculpting and drawing to photography.
Maybe you'd enjoy an edgy art exhibit in the heart of South Beach. "What are you laughing at" is a lighthearted look at some of the more contentious subjects in society such as politics. The art show is located at the Art Center on the popular Lincoln Road in South Beach. Explore the slightly eccentric, lighthearted, good spirited nature that makes Miami Beach and Miami such an interesting place to live.
