Home to a thriving art scene, there are over 70 galleries in Wynwood alone. Downtown Miami may not be able to lay claim to such a feat, but it’s an up and coming area for art and culture.
If you are thinking of visiting Wynwood then this gallery is a must. Founded and directed by Nina Johnson-Milewski, the collection covers a variety of mediums, though there’s a clear focus on design and sculptures.

Miami City Ballet
The Miami City Ballet was formed in 1985. Since then, it has established a repertoire of almost 100 ballets, ranging from classical to contemporary shows. The company comprises of over 50 dancers, all who have performed in the ballet’s national and international tours. When they’re not globe-trotting, the dancers can normally be found at Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts in Downtown.
The ethos of this not-for-profit is to promote Afro-Cuban culture. For more than 10 years, the company has promoted cross-cultural relations through music, dance performances, lectures and their very own festival, which is held annually in the late summer at the Little Haiti Cultural Arts Center.
