How to Have a Crazy Packed Day of Miami Art

I love visual art. It’s just the way I was raised. So coming to Miami was huge for me - a whole new world of art. And I get it, most people get their art fill once a year at Art Basel, but if you’re like me, once a year isn’t enough. Honestly though, it’s really hard to make time for things like art once school starts. Therefore, I planned a day jam-packed with art, so when that one weekend comes around where you actually have a light enough workload to take an entire Saturday off, you can see some local art! Then at least you can go to Art Basel AND have at least one other art day. 


10: 00 a.m. : Start right here on campus: the Lowe Art Museum. It has got a great glass collection and usually has some really cool shows going through it. 

10:30 a.m. : Hit the De La Cruz Collection in the Design District. It’s totally free to enter and an 

amazing gallery!

11:00 a.m : From there, walk over to the Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA). Another free location for art.

12:00 a.m. : Get it to the Wynwood Walls. Not an obscure art spot, but it’s super fun for 

walking around and some wall eye candy. 

1: 00 p.m. : Peréz Art Museum Miami (PAMM). This one’s a must for anyone even slightly 

interested in art in Miami. It is the go-to museum for bringing any visitors. You can also grab lunch at their awesome restaurant, “Verde.” 

2:30 p.m. : Freedom Tower at Miami Dade College. A bit of a walk (or a free Metro Mover ride) from the Peréz stands the Freedom Tower. It’s an old looking building, but the museum itself is really well curated. It is a part of Miami Dade College, and it’s just $5 for students!

4:00 p.m. : Cross the bridge to Miami Beach and go to the Bass Museum. It allways has a cool  Show going on.

5:00 p.m. : The last stop is Artechouse. A very instagrammable destination also in South Beach. 

Of course, there are so many other places you could go in Miami, but this is just one possible curation of what an art day in Miami could mean for you. So, feel free to mix up the list as you see fit! Also, maybe you do have time to break it up. If so, that might be a better route to take. Often though, things like art come last on our list of priorities. Don’t forget to take some time for yourself in the midst of all the school work. Every once in a while, have yourself an art day :)
