Events at Vizcaya Museum

Vizcaya Museum & Gardens is one of those local favorite places to get away. Here is a list of upcoming events:

March 28 @ 6 pm
Gardens by Moonlight ft. “Waffles After Work” – Tour the gardens, learn how technology is making Vizcaya’s iconic Barge accessible and, of course, enjoy waffles with LiveNinja! Waffles and beer included with each ticket purchase.
TICKETS: $20 for adults, $15 for children (6-12), $15 for members, free for children 5 and under

April 1 @ 2 pm
Overload with David Brooks – New York artist David Brooks returns to Vizcaya to join the community for an in-depth exploration of his installation, “Of Discriminating Artistic Feeling.” Brooks’ work consists of three bird cages on display throughout Vizcaya’s Main House, recalling James Deering’s love of exotic birds, monkeys and other animals. A local bird expert will add specialist knowledge to the conversation, and the program will round off with the release of a newly rehabilitated pelican from Vizcaya’s East Terrace back into the wild.
TICKETS: $5

April 8 @ 11 am
Nutrition with Common Threads – Join Common Threads in the Vizcaya Village, once home to Vizcaya’s farm, to get your hands dirty with edible plants.
