HistoryMiami’s newest exhibition, featuring Miami-inspired murals by Miami-based artists, is now open to the public.

Called Some Like It Hot, the exhibition is the first major museum/gallery showcase of Miami’s burgeoning street art scene, and was curated in collaboration with some of the art forms’ local pioneers and trailblazers: 2alas, Lo Castro, Tati Suarez, Erin Odea and the MSG Crew to name a few. Each contributed original works for the exhibit, inspired by Miami’s history.

Street art in has recently exploded in popularity and is now a definitive part of the cultural fabric in today’s Miami. The murals and outdoor pieces that dot the Wynwood/Midtown area have become major attractions for both tourists and locals alike, and have helped revitalize a once forgotten neighborhood. However, the impact the art form, and the nameless artists creating it (largely for free) have yet to be recognized by major galleries and museums in the area…until now.

General museum admission is free for HistoryMiami members and children under 6. Admission for adults is $8, seniors and students are $7 and $5 for children 6 – 12 years old.
