It’s a new year and there’s new art to see all around South Florida.
Let’s start with what’s being called “The World’s Largest Public Art Fair.” It’s titled “Art-4-All” and will run through the end of 2021, according to organizers.
This art fair features 50 billboards along Miami’s main roadways and also 100 gigantic paintings lining the Paramount Miami Worldcenter promenade in downtown Miami between northeast 8th and 10th streets.
Art-4-All features an Apple logo painting and also a portrait of Steve Wozniak, the inventor of the personal computer and the co-founder of Apple.
We go from Miami, north to Plantation where several pop-up museums bring color and culture to the Westfield Broward Mall.
The Island SPACE: Caribbean Museum pop-up is FREE and runs through the end of January. This installation tells the story of the Caribbean from indigenous people, the colonial period, emancipation to independence. Displays include rumba, reggaeton, calypso and more. Hours run Thursday through Sunday, 11am-7pm.
The Young at Art Pop-Up Museum runs from January 16th through January 31st. The state-of-the-art installations include exhibits that you can document through a mirror selfie featuring art and educational lessons. It’s $10 per person, Thursday through Sunday.
And finally, the mall also features the Black Voices Art Series. It has pieces from local artists focusing on the #BlackLivesMatter movement. This free temporary gallery, located near the dining court, also runs through the end of the month.
