Art, Art, Everywhere: The Miami Design District’s Best Exhibits During Art Week
It’s that time of year again: Miami Art Week. The annual art-filled festival, takes over the neighborhood from November 28 to December 4.
And while the Miami Design District already has plenty of world-renowned art galleries and public pieces on display, there are many new exciting additions for the special week.
Speed of Light
For our annual holiday installation, the Miami Design District commissioned London-based designer Philippe Malouin to light up the neighborhood in a unique way. His response was The Speed of Light, a kinetic installation that turns urban design elements into a rollercoaster of light. The piece features glowing orbs of light rolling down post tracks from Palm Court to Paseo Ponti, accompanying visitors as they walk through the neighborhood. On display from November 28 to January 3, 2017.
