The fifth season of SOMIartwalk© comes to its conclusion in March.  Unlike other areas which boast of many art galleries, South Miami has a unique take on presenting an artnight as area businesses open their doors to artists as well as on our tree-lined sidewalks.

Held on the second Friday (6-9p) of the month, from October through March, Art Night visitors walking through our town center get to appreciate the visual and performing arts while also appreciating the uniqueness of our charming retail business establishments.  Art Night Ambassadors distribute Art Night maps to visitors walking our sidewalks.

As South Miami is a more family-oriented community, many locations on sidewalks will showcase art and musical performances by area students.

This season, different area restaurants are hosting an “After Artwalk Party” with special offerings to artwalk attendees.  Your artwalk map will be your pass; and each night of artwalk, FOX’s hosts a late night party (10p-1a).
