Downtown Miami is kicking off South Florida’s art season with a weekend full of interactive activities the entire family can enjoy. The sixth annual Downtown Miami Art Days sponsored by the Miami Downtown Development Authority will be held Friday, September 8 through Sunday, September 10th at multiple venues throughout the urban core.
To help your little one unleash their inner Van Gogh, I’ve put together an Art Days “family-friendly” agenda. See you there!
Friday, September 8
1:00 – 3:00pm Let’s Design a Sidewalk at Miami Center for Architecture and Design (MCAD)
Children will be able to create a mosaic for a downtown sidewalk out of a piece of big blue print and colorful foam tile squares. The works will be pieced together to create a finished product or children can take their masterpieces home.
Saturday, September 9
10:00am – 5:00pm ArtsLaunch 2017 Kids Zone at the Adrienne Arsht Center
Face painting, balloon artists and family-friendly activities with community partners are planned for the Arsht Center’s Kids Zone. While you’re there, be sure to visit the “Community Village” on the Ziff-Ballet Opera House stage to learn about the upcoming 2017-2018 art offerings from 120 local arts and cultural organizations.
12:00pm – 4:00pm ArtsLaunch 2017 Food Truck Block Party at the Adrienne Arsht Center
Food, music and fun – what’s not to like about the Arsht Center’s “Food Truck Block Party”? A swarm of Miami’s best food trucks will help you avoid having hangry (hungry and angry) kids.
11:00am – 4:00pm Take Flight with Kids at the Frost Museum of Science
Kids imaginations will be soaring at the Frost Museum of Science “Take Flight with Kites” event on Museum Plaza. History and science lessons on kites will be offered throughout the afternoon, and children will be able to create and fly their own kites. While the workshop is free, admission rates apply to the museum.
Sunday, September 10
10:00am – 6:00pm Art Days at Miami Children’s Museum
Families can enjoy closing out the weekend with a trip to the Miami Children’s Museum. In addition to the interactive exhibits offered at the museum, kids will be able to create a work of art that will be added to a large mixed-media mural.
