If you haven’t already you must check out the Park in downtown Miami on Thursdays. Why not start with tonight! Tonight the Perez Art Museum Miami (1103 Biscayne Blvd., Miami) is celebrating the launch of a new exhibition with a free kick-off party starting at 6 p.m. The evening is the next installment of the Free First Thursdays at PAMM. Free First Fridays allows free admission and includes a later closing time at 9 p.m.
Free Art Fridays All Over Miami
Friday nights in Miami include many fun activities but also your chance to score some free original art. Free Art Fridays is a worldwide art movement that’s made its way to Miami, and the city’s local chapter, founded by local artist and promoter Registered Artist, is striving to unite artists, art collectors, and anyone who loves a good scavenger hunt. Every Friday, artists hide their work around the city, and whoever finds it gets to take it home for free. To participate, the rules are simple: Make a work of art you’re willing to give away. Then leave it somewhere in the city, along with your name (artistic nickname or otherwise) and the local chapter’s information (the site has a printable QR code, or artists can include the Facebook page URL). Next, post clues on the Facebook page to help Free Art Fridays (FAF) members find your work. Members also post pictures of their finds on the page and “share” them so artists can see who took their creations home. Painters, photographers, poets — all types of artists are encouraged to participate and drop pieces off around the city.
Second Saturday Wynwood Art Walk
This months Second Saturday Art Walk, beginning at 7 p.m., seven of the gallery’s top names, including Peruvian artist Cecilia Paredes, whose photo-based images depict her melting into the wildly inventive environmental or dreamy celestial landscapes she creates. Also check out Rome’s Fabiano Parisi, whose poetic images of abandoned urban locations bristle with a mysterious air evoking the surreal. Brooklyn-based artist Sterz weighs in with atmospheric opuses waxing on the existential human condition and themes as disparate as time, sex, joy, despair, love, and disease. See more information on the artists here.
