East Edgewater’s Cultural HighlightsPosted 11.28.2021
The Miami waterfront condos for sale at Missoni Baia are the architectural embodiment of fashionable style rooted in familial connection and artistic expression of everyday life. If living at Missoni Baia is a creative act, then its location in Miami’s up-and-coming East Edgewater neighborhood makes it the perfect place to find inspiration at home and on the town. In addition to being the site of some of Miami’s hottest galleries and high-end boutiques, East Edgewater is also Miami’s cultural mecca for renowned art collections and museums. These are the kinds of places where you’ll want to become a regular visitor, weaving their creative vibes into your daily existence.
Perez Art Museum Miami is a cornerstone of the city’s modern and contemporary art holdings from the 20th and 21st centuries. Housed in a building designed by Herzog & de Meuron, it features a sculpture garden with works by artists such as Anthony Caro, Edgar Negret, and Ernesto Neto and trees and plantings designed to create a dialogue with the exterior of the building. Rotating exhibits feature works on the cutting edge of the art practice of their time as well as the current scene. Currently on view and not to be missed is Meleko Mokgosi’s Your Trip to Africa, a large-scale artwork situated in the museum’s two-story project gallery that references European 18th- and 19th-century history painting through a postcolonial lens and takes its title from an unusual film by Peter Kubelka.
Just a few steps from PAMM is the Frost Science Museum, where the majesty of the deep ocean and the cosmos meet. The six-story museum contains a multilevel aquarium, a planetarium, and a rotating roster of awe-inspiring exhibits. Currently on view is Feathers to the Stars, which charts the history of flight from the dinosaurs to human invention; MeLab, which explores the relationship between the body and the mind; and Power of Science, which reveals how science has changed the world throughout history.
Another international art destination located in Miami is the Rubell Museum, the passion and life’s work of Don and Mera Rubell, whose collector’s instincts led them to early acquisitions of work by artists who subsequently became some of the art world’s most important figures. Works by Jean-Michel Basquiat, Cecily Brown, and William Kentridge help form the backbone of a collection now housed in a 100,000-square-foot complex that not only connects the public with contemporary art but functions as a record of how the Rubells and Miami have helped shape the landscape of contemporary art.
The richness of Miami culture doesn’t stop at night, and the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts has a fall and winter lineup of some of today’s most exciting musicians and performers. This November, you can attend concerts by Chucho Valdes, The French Horn Collective, and the Gypsy Kings. The Center is yet another East Edgewater institution whose portal to the international world of art and performance is always within easy reach of the Biscayne Bay condos at Missoni Baia.
