October 2022 - May 2023
The City of Miami Beach is working alongside some of the world’s best cultural institutions to provide a night of free, unique and unforgettable experiences. Every third Thursday of the month, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., Miami Beach will come alive with culture as various institutions and buildings open their doors to give you just a taste of what they have to offer. From backstage tours, exhibition openings, and free film screenings in the park, there will be something for everyone. All events are free unless otherwise noted.

The majority of the programming is accessible by foot and by bike, but we will also offer dedicated free trolleys that will drop you off and pick you up at our dedicated Culture Crawl stops – check out our monthly map to find your closest stop. Start where you would like and explore at your own leisure!

    North Beach Social featuring Munir Hossn, presented by Rhythm Foundation.
    Last year, the buzz surrounding Brazilian musician Munir Hossn broke through the pandemic malaise. It felt like all the jazz and music-heads were talking about an iconoclastic musical genius living right in our midst in North Beach. And suddenly, he was popping up everywhere - featured in sets by innovative jazz and international artists, at festivals, bringing his unique style to our stage. Now we feature a full evening with Mr. Hossn, who promises a journey through his sensory and intellectual musical landscape, as he takes over the November edition of the monthly North Beach Social - starting with some unreleased songs played solo, leading into some AfroBrazilian Jazz by his trio, and closing with his ’supergroup’ Elas.

    Mr. Hossn was born in Brazil in a humble home in Salvador, Bahia, from a family whose heritage included African, European, Middle Eastern and indigenous ancestry. He began working as a musician at just age 10, leaving behind formal schooling to instead soak up knowledge from experienced players. By the time he was 15, he was accompanying acclaimed Brazilian names like Hermeto Pascoal, Roberto Mendes, Daniela Mercury, Gilberto Gil, and Lenine. He next moved into the international arena, and has collaborated with artists including Joe Zawinul Syndicate, Didier Lockwood, Jorge Drexler, Concha Buika, Quincy Jones, Alfredo Rodriguez, Richard Bona, and many more.

    His group ELAS is dedicated to women, and features four stellar female artists: Clarissa Vieira (Cello), Yissy Garcia (Drums), Magela Herrera (Flute/Keyboards), and Totti Lamadrid (Piano)

LINCOLN ROAD

    Lincoln Road Business Improvement District
    Lincoln Road | www.lincolnrd.com
    Trolley Stop: Washington Ave & 17 St

    Richard Orlinski Exhibit:
    Lincoln Road District will further enhance its arts and culture experience by showcasing 12 giant, electrifying sculptures by French artist Richard Orlinski. The exhibit will run from November 2022 to March 2023.

    Keith Haring + CityKids:
    In 1986, Keith Haring worked with the CityKids organization and 1000 kids in NYC to create an 90′ tall mural titled “CityKids Speak On Liberty” comprised of Keith’s dark outlines of his iconic dancing figures and the Statue of Liberty. When asked why the statue’s arm was made from oddly curved lines, Haring’s off-the-cuff response was “because liberty is wobbly.” 36 years later… in 2022, liberty is not only still wobbly, but seemingly broken into many pieces as the US struggles with maintaining a sense of social cohesion and its cultural and political divisions appear to grow worse each year.

    Over the course of Miami Art Week, “Because Liberty is Broken” will be displayed in the 640 Lincoln Road space and participants are invited to collaborate with HVY and CityKids to write directly onto the broken pieces of 3D version of the Haring’s torch from the original “City Kids Speak on Liberty” mural.
