MIAMI ARTS, CULTURE & HERITAGE MONTHS: AN ODE TO GREATER MIAMI’S CULTURALLY-RICH PAST AND PRESENT

The GMCVB Program Spotlights the Diverse Neighborhoods and People of Greater Miami and the Beaches

MIAMI (November 17, 2020) – The Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau (GMCVB) announces the return of Miami Arts, Culture and Heritage Months, a program that celebrates the vibrancy and history of Greater Miami’s diverse neighborhoods and people. The two-month long initiative begins December 1 and runs through January 31, offering locals and visitors the opportunity to immerse themselves in cultural gems through special experiences and offers. From virtual and in-person art exhibitions to special hotel offerings and experiences, there are endless fun and safe activities and events in which everyone can participate. A complete list of offerings and program details are available at MiamiTemptations.com.

The GMCVB is also casting a wider net to highlight the arts-centric activity throughout the destination by creating a robust Arts & Culture Guide aggregated across GMCVB partner organizations. The list can be found at MiamiTemptations.com, and includes activities such as pop-ups at art-centric hotels, musical performances, outdoor dance productions, virtual gallery tours, art exhibitions and more. To submit an event or special offer, please email Temptations@GMCVB.com. Additionally, non-partners can submit event listings free of charge via the following submission form, available year-round.

Miami Arts, Culture and Heritage Months is just one of the GMCVB’s continued efforts to bolster Miamians and the local economy, and serves as a cornerstone of Miami Shines, a comprehensive travel and tourism recovery program to promote Greater Miami and the Beaches to locals and encourage vacationing in their backyard. It also coincides with the kick-off of Art of Black Miami, a year-round marketing program honoring visual arts of the black diaspora, now in its seventh year.

“Each December, Miami and the Beaches has a palpable energy that comes with the start of Arts Season and all the special programming going on, and while this year definitely looks and feels different, the GMCVB is committed to keeping up this ‘spark’ into 2021,” said William D. Talbert III, C.D.M.E., President and CEO of the GMCVB. “Miami Arts, Culture and Heritage Months aim to showcase the best in arts and culture programming that can be enjoyed year-round. This year offers something for every individual and comfort level, from art-centric experiences offered in-person and virtually, to hotel offers for staycations and outings at cultural institutions.”
