Come lounge in the InterContinental Miami's lobby every Monday night during the Noche de Arte, a weekly live art event where you can watch art being created right before your eyes.
Noche de Arte is hosted by local artists Jean and Iggy Font, founders of CollaboARTive in the Bird Road Arts District. Their monthly event strives to bridge the gap between artist and viewer. Although artists often work in seclusion, the Fonts offer them the opportunity to showcase their art to the public and appreciate those who step out of their comfort zone to do so.
The program offers artists a month of solo exhibition in the Lobby of the InterContinental Miami Hotel, and features the artist making work in the Lobby every Monday evening from 5 to 7 p.m.
