#MiamiWalks | Design District Public Art & Architecture
May 5, 2018 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm
#MiamiWalks is part of a global walking movement known as Jane’s Walk, and is proud to be an anchor initiative of the 2018 #10DaysofConnection!
This neighborhood exploration of the Design District will be led by Margery Gordon, a journalist, educator and curator from Arts Encounters, who was raised amid Dade County’s cultural development, bringing interactive experiences and guided tours of art & design destinations to South Florida that enlighten, engage and connect participants. The Miami Design District is a vibrant area dedicated to innovative architecture, design, art, fashion and dining.
This walking tour delves into the area’s evolution from a historic regional hub for home furnishings to a world-renowned showcase for cutting-edge art, design, fashion and culinary experiences. Stops along the way include Buckminster Fuller’s retro-futuristic Fly’s Eye Dome, and Sol LeWitt’s monumental block towers reconstructed this winter. Attendees will learn about the creative process of such influential visionaries, plus key movements and emerging trends in contemporary art and urban planning.
Accessibility: #MiamiWalks seeks to make this event as accessible as possible to individuals of all different abilities and needs. This walking tour in particular, will be kid-friendly, dog-friendly, and ADA-friendly. For questions or in need of additional accommodations, please send an email to email@example.com at least 24-hours in advance of the event.
