Available spaces along Coral Gables’ iconic Miracle Mile have been converted into artist studios, just as Miami Art Week approaches. With the City of Coral Gables and Terranova’s support, the Coral Gables Business Improvement District has worked to transform seven retail spots into studios, where 21 local artists will create, display and sell their art to the public through the end of December. Curated by Carol Damian as part of the Gables Art CollectiveStudios on the Mile is open to the public. Visitors are welcome to see these local artists at work and browse their masterpieces while they stroll through one of Miami’s most popular thoroughfares.
