Art Lovers’ Guide to Museums in Miami: Winter 2019

After relaxing by the Atlantic Ocean, head out and explore some of the best museums in Miami. From Miami Beach to Wynwood, and from renowned museums to local galleries, here are the best exhibits to see this winter.

Perez Art Museum

This winter, see the site-specific “American Echo Chamber” by José Carlos Martinat. Large-scale light sculptures evoke themes in both American and the artists native Peruvian cultures. Ranging from politics to popular culture, symbols created by the artist compare our contemporary times to an echo chamber, in which we seek media that reinforces our existing beliefs rather than challenging our prejudices.
