Free events during DWNTWN Art Days


Downtown Miami comes alive with art and culture Sept. 7-9 for the three-day DWNTWNArt Days festival, which is spearheaded by the Downtown Development Authority. Most events are free. The full schedule can be found at the link.

Activities include:

Downtown Improv Day at the Olympia: A day of improv classes and shows with the Society Circus Players 

Acapella Corner: If you love NBC’s The Voice, this one’s for you. Miami’s most talented high school acapella groups will provide an afternoon of vocal harmony

Dancepalooza: The worlds of visual art and dance fuse together at PAMM as local dancers lead pop-up performances that respond to the museum’s artwork

Mall Daze at The 777 Mall: Daily programming by Mana Contemporary will include performances, live music, poetry readings, zines, workshops, films, special guest exhibitions, and local and residency artists’ open studios

Capture Miami 2018: A photography exhibit featuring and documenting the ongoing growth and changes taking place in Downtown Miami

Featuring exhibitions, performances, children’s programming, guided tours, pop-up galleries and art parties, Art Days is a celebration of Downtown’s robust cultural and artistic community.

New this year, Fringe Projects has commissioned artist Keith Allyn Spencer to create a series of five hand painted car covers to provide surprising and delightful encounters for passersby and Art Days participants throughout Downtown Miami. The five covers will be created by the artist in response to his impressions visiting Miami, and expanding on his interest in car culture, regional aesthetics, and border relationships.

The Miami Center for Architecture and Design (MCAD) at its new location (310 SE 1st Street) will again serve as this year’s Art Days HUB. Art Days staff will be available to help plan your itinerary and find the best routes to travel via the free Metromover and City of Miami Trolley to each venue.
