The weekend has finally arrived and it’s your chance to relax and score some free original art. Free Art Fridays is a worldwide art movement that’s made its way to Miami. Miami’s local chapter was founded by local artist and promoter, Registered Artist. This chapter is striving to unite artists, art collectors, and anyone who loves a good old 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.
Think of the perfect summer party, gilled with swan inflatables, pool noodles, floating flamingo cup holders and nonstop music with DJs even performing on a floating stage! Miamians sure know how to throw a party!
The Float Bash will be bobbing up at Virginia Key Beach Park (4020 Virginia Beach Key Dr., Key Biscayne) this Saturday from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m., the beach bash will celebrate the end of the summer season. Here you’ll find everything from water slides and water activities to food trucks and an open bar to the aforementioned floating DJ stage, where local beat-makers will spin for eight hours straight. There will also be an air compressor to keep your vessel afloat and floaties for sale. Get your tickets HERE and read more about it at floatbash.com.
For a more chill evening you can catch a flick at Blue Starlite Mini Urban Drive-In
This tiny must-do has only 24 parking spots, shows a rotating schedule of classic flicks and is Miami’s only drive-in.
