Where Can You See Art In Miami Florida While On Vacation


Miami Art Week is over – and not too soon. We can only sit in traffic for so many hours before we get into a fetal position, shaking and moaning and swearing to never leave our homes again, even if they are underwater.

Still, the desire to go out and see something cool was ignited.

Do not worry. There’s a lot of art to be seen in museums in and around Miami, and you can do it without spending half the day in your car (we think).

There are also a number of photo-friendly facilities up to the end of the year (and beyond) for your Instagram viewing pleasure.

Here are a few of them.

Installations of the Via Española
