Last week I read an article in The Miami Herald about the proliferation of Art Walks in South Florida. As former owner of Gallery One in Coconut Grove, I am thrilled to see the flourish of art walks throughout Miami and nearby areas.
The events have a way of creating a sense of community while often supporting local artists. Each Art Walk is infused with a unique cultural flavor making each a must see. I think instead of a book club, I may entice some friends to create an art club this fall…
