During our stay in Miami Beach and Miami we will try to spend at least half a day to discover Little Haiti, it is the cultural center of the local Haitian minority. We suggest to keep an eye on this area as it is more and more becoming attractive to the local galleries and art clusters interested in expanding out of the Design District and Wynwood.
Between the galleries already you can find Michel Jon and Diet, which has just moved there in a new much bigger space. During Art Basel Michael Jon presents a solo show by Sofia Leiby and Gallery Diet utilizes the unique architecture of its new home for the exhibition Trees in Oolite.
Not far from Little Haiti you will find the Miami Ironside; a new interesting art and design complex composed of 65 showrooms, studios, and co-working spaces that include a diverse grouping of architects, interior designers, material and furniture designers, boutique retailers, creative services and art galleries.
Miami Ironside is committed to seeking out artist and designers that align with their creative vision and passion. The art and design in public places project is an ongoing effort to promote and engage national and international talents, providing them a public platform to exhibit their work in a unique setting and to become a part of the local creative community.
The best moment to go to Ironside will be Friday night (December 4) when the Campus Collective Party together with Art Initiatives by Laufen will take place. Both these events are part of the program of Design Escape 2015.
