Art takes over Flagler Street with Alt B
Miami Downtown Development Authority is making Miami’s historic Flagler Street come alive with creativity.
Through March 31, Alt B will be home to painters, photographers and musicians as they display their art along Flagler’s storefronts. Work by nine artists will be displayed at storefronts where visitors can scan QR codes to learn about the work and purchase it. They’ll also enjoy performances by a cellist, a vocalist, a dancer, an improv actor and others at three “street stages.”
Some features of the socially distanced experience include Urban Tranquility, an exhibition of photographs by C.W. Griffin that explore the one-block area surrounding downtown Miami’s government center; Magic City, photos by Hialeah-born Jacquelyn Carmen Guerrero that “highlight the artist’s use of sequins and beadwork from 2015-present”; Seeing Sound/Eating Color, a storytelling exhibit that uses new technology by FilmGate Interactive and Rafael Vargas Bernard, Felipe Aguilar, Nick Hardeman; and Storefront, where artist Jillian Mayer “combines art and contemporary design, creating prototypes of functional artwork through acts of assemblage, upcycling, and repurposing of industrial materials not traditionally considered for home furniture.”
Alt B takes place Fridays and Saturdays, 4-8 p.m. through March 31 along Southeast First and Second Avenues. on Flagler Street. A parking garage is located at 100 SE Second St. Click here for more information.
