If you’ve never stopped into Swampspace in the Design District, you are really missing out. This particular location is the latest outpost for Oliver Sanchez, who uses the old school house as a studio, an exhibition space, a place to interact and commune, a place without commercial restraints to enjoy art. There are always people […]

  You might think that an exhibit of poster art from the first part of the 20th century in Germany, currently showing at the Jewish Museum of Florida-FIU, would be another example of the hideous Nazi propaganda art of some of that era. But in fact the pieces from the once-massive collection of Dr. Hans […]

If you haven’t stopped in to the Black Square Gallery, on a corner in Wynwood’s center core, you are missing out. While many of Miami’s galleries tend to focus on art originating in Latin countries or on artists with Latin backgrounds — rightfully so — Black Square often highlights art from Eastern Europe, in particular Ukraine, from […]

What to do in the summer doldrums to make a little noise, get people out for an art visit? Some places close up, others keep an exhibition extended, leaving room for people to catch up during the slow, lazy (and these weeks really rainy) days.

The Miami Art Museum’s summer offerings are labeled “Lights Out.” It’s appropriate for several reasons. First, the lights are indeed out in the museum’s now former space on Flagler Street for the summer, as it transitions into the Perez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) and sets up in its new home, scheduled to open on Biscayne […]

It’s a real treat to see galleries and art institutions celebrating the printed book (the qualification printed would have been redundant only several years ago, but not today). We’ve mentioned Locust Projects (a Knight Arts grantee), and its art book library program before, along with Miami-Dade County Public Library’s unique Vasari collection. On Saturday night, […]

The Wolfsonian-FIU has really been on a roll lately. First it received a $5 million Knight Foundation grant in December, in particular to beef up its online presence so more people can get to know its unique collection.

No mirage, those minarets of Opa-Locka

The city of Opa-Locka is said to have the largest concentration of Moorish architecture in the United States. That in itself starts to tell the strange, fascinating tale of this landlocked area of Miami-Dade County, which many people know about but have never seen. Founded in 1926 by flight pioneer Glenn Curtiss (hence the location […]

Downtown Hollywood isn’t Wynwood – in fact both neighborhoods would prefer to be their own entities. But in the last several years, Broward’s hip coastal town has developed an outdoor mural program that,while not as crazy as Wynwood, has some stellar stuff on its walls. Adding to the works of the likes of Jessy Nite, […]
