More information

Life Is Art / Soul Of Miami is working on two new projects, each of a larger scale, in order to expand the postive changemaking we are creating in Miami. 1) MACCFest is planned to be an annual music, art and community festival, celebrating all that is awesome in Miami. It is scheduled to debut in November of 2015 at the Miami Marine Stadium. 2) In The Loop 305 is an emergent accelerator program for creative economy businesses. It will provide support to creative social entrepreneurs through education, promotion, and investment and is planned to expand throughout 2015. Both the Knight Foundation and the Miami Foundation have shown significant interest in bringing this program to Miami.

On November 1, 2014, we are hosting a kickoff event for both programs at the Miami Marine Stadium (in the parking lot). We are also partnering with the GMCVB to be the kick off of Miami Live Month, part of their monthly Temptations program. The GMCVB has committed their marketing power to us for this show.

This is the first live music and art event open to the public at the historic Miami Marine Stadium grounds in over two decades! The kickoff party is an evening of live music, art and creative collaboration, featuring some of the top local bands and artists. The Stadium and the Bay serve as backdrops for great entertainment, networking and casual encounters with friends of the South Florida arts communities and set the stage for exciting 2015 event announcements from Life is Art, Soul of Miami and In the Loop 305.

PREMIERE PARTY – November 1, 2014

We are also celebrating the upcoming renovation of the The Miami Marine Stadium, which serves as a glorious backdrop and a reminder of Miami’s colorful history and a hope for the future.

M.A.C.C.Fest is a large-scale outdoor festival set to debut in November of 2015 featuring a full day of Music, Art, Culture and Community. A celebration of all things awesome in South Florida, MACCFest includes local and international live music, visual and performing arts, technology, health, fashion, environment, community and family fun.

In The Loop 305 is an emergent space seeking to revolutionize our city’s creative economy.

Organized in February 2008 to seek restoration of the Miami Marine Stadium, the all volunteer group was organized under the administrative umbrella of Dade Heritage Trust, Miami Dade County’s foremost organization devoted to historic preservation. The purpose is the restoration and return to operation of Miami Marine Stadium and have it operated in the public interest. More Information.

Miami DWNTWN Art Days 9/19/14-9/21/14

Miami DWNTWN Art Days
September 19-21, All Day
dwntwnartdays Downtown Miami

Art Days is designed to bring together and promote the cultural community, in addition to facilitating and incentivizing art exhibitions and other cultural activities. In its third year, Art Days, supported by the Miami Downtown Development Authority (DDA), continues to provide free inspiring art activities across the Downtown cultural landscape. Working in partnership with a variety of arts and culture institutions, organizations and artists, Art Days is a three-day cultural exploration that incorporates countless free events and exhibitions for the community to experience and enjoy. Art Days offers something for everyone from family activities, panel discussions, international exhibitions, bike tours, walking tours and so much more!

Art Days is comprised of three components:
The Hub
located at MCAD, 100 NE 1st Ave, Miami, FL 33132
The “hub” is the epicenter for information on Art Days. In 2013 over 130 events took place around Downtown Miami, so it’s worthwhile to take a moment and set an itinerary to make the most out of the weekend!
The hub is the place to…
…find someone to help you navigate through the vast amount of things to do.
…start most walking and bike tours.
…be creative and paint your own unique t-shirt.
…hang out and connect with your friends on social media.
…find people to welcome you to Downtown Miami.

The Fringe
The “Fringe” is a set of curated activations of Downtown Miami in the form of visual and performance art projects. The visual art projects are commissioned, site-specific public art installations, curated by a specialist contemporary art curator Amanda Sanfilippo, and located within a one-mile radius around the Hub for easy walkability. This year’s Fringe has been initiated in partnership with Miami Dade County’s Art in Public Places.

The Events
Throughout the three day weekend, over 60 different art organizations, culture organizations, non-profits and artists activate their spaces with exhibitions, performances, cocktails meet and greet, art talks, panels and more. New for 2014 is an increased family friendly programming and children activities to accommodate the growing number of families living in Downtown.
Realizing the lack of performing arts in last year’s mix of events, the Miami DDA, in collaboration with the Olympia Theatre, is debuting a series of performance pieces in public areas and venues all around Downtown
As a guideline, here is a schedule for the weekend:
Thursday: Media/VIP Preview of the Fringe and Art Days
Friday: School tours/ Exhibitions openings/ post -work cocktail activities
Saturday: Museum day; art tours and exhibitions
Sunday: Cultural activities/bike tours
