Welcome to Artechouse! Where art, science, and technology unite. Located along Collins Avenue and 7th Street in Miami Beach, the space is dedicated to 21st century artists.

Artechouse first opened in Washington D.C., then later opened it's second location in New Mexico, making Miami it's third venue.

"We want to showcase the artists who use technology as their primary medium," said Sandro Kereselidze.

Sandro is one of the co-founders of the digital art space, for him, he saw an opportunity to introduce people to something new.

"I'm coming from a family of artists, so for me it was always 'What's next for the arts?' or 'What will the 21st century be remembered for?'. I looked at the field of art and realized there is no real space dedicated for arts and technology," said Kereselidze.

Unlike most museums where visitors can't touch or interact with the art, this museum encourages you to play with the art.

"Each exhibit is very different, we have created this space for people to specifically interact through this medium of technology, its something really magical," said Kereselidze.

When you walk in, its like entering a digital dimension, everything in the two floor gallery works with white lights and motion detectors.

"I think my favorite is the upstairs landscape, which is the cube upstairs. Its very creative for someone to immerse themselves into the digital world," said Kereselidze.
