Miami Beach’s Social And Event Season Amps Up In Fall

Fall—and winter, for that matter–is one of the best times to visit Miami Beach. The city’s year round comfortable temperatures is never more enjoyable and make it easy to experience and participate in an assortment of activities and events late into the year. The city is bursting with a wealth of offerings from film and food festivals to an exciting arts program at the Bass Museum and of course, the opening season of the New World Symphony.

Miami Beach is like no other place in the world. Recently awarded 2014 and 2015 Magellan Awards by Travel Weekly in the categories of “Destinations | Mobile App” and “Overall Spa Destinations| U.S and Canada” respectively, Miami Beach is a favorite destination among travelers worldwide. Renowned for its unparalleled culinary offerings, extravagant nightlife, rich culture, luxe shopping and plush hotels, Miami Beach is home to unique museums, Miami City Ballet, Miami Beach Convention Center, international festivals and art exhibitions, boat and auto shows, over 187 boutique and resort hotels and 12 public parks. It is no wonder the beautifully diverse city is one of the world’s most popular vacation destinations.

The choice of culinary, cultural and social events are so immense, travelers will want to book a flight and a hotel stay as soon as possible. And of course, let’s not forget the cultural event of the season, the king of all Miami Beach fall events, Art Basel Miami Beach at the Miami Beach Convention Center (and all the art shows, parties, store openings, did I mention parties, that revolves around the Big Whale itself).

Miami Beach is certainly busy and fun all year long, but fall is one of the most active and engaging times to visit the city,” notes Peggy Benua, Chair, the Miami Beach Visitor and Convention Authority (MBVCA). “From the New World Symphony to the Bass Museum, from the Italian Film Festival to the Seafood Festival, and a variety of exceptional events in between, the city’s hotel room capacity should be at high levels all season long.”

In 2014, consistent with previous years, Miami Beach remains the most common area for visitor lodging in Miami-Dade County with the majority of visitors (48%) traveling to Miami Beach.(1)

Miami Beach remains continuously intriguing and entertaining, with so much to do besides beaches, restaurants and nightclubs,” says Grisette Roque, Executive Director, MBVCA. “Our visitors have options here, far more than they even realize when they book a stay. That’s what makes Miami Beach a new and return favorite for travelers and the Fall season amps up the activity level considerably.

Where to go, what to do? The choices are endless in Miami Beach. As fall arrives, visitors and residents are dazzled by the assortment – and quality – of selections. A small sample of some of fall’s major events and happenings are below with something for everyone under the sun.

scope-2013-miami-beach

It is with tremendous enthusiasm that SCOPE announces its new location on the sands of Miami Beach.

Featured Programs

MAXIKIOSCO

Maxikiosco is the 2nd piece in Fruin’s celebrated ICON series. Composed from hundreds of plexi offcuts, this work celebrates the vibrancy of the corner stores of Argentina. Like New York’s Watertower and Los Angeles’ Billboard, these works transform signature architectural shapes into kaleidoscopes of color that project a cities identity to the viewer. The sculpture will be a beacon of light illuminated by the sun during the day and computer controlled halogens by night.

SUBVERTISING

Ron English brings his unique brand of “subvertising” to SCOPE Miami Beach with an installation exploring the many layers of advertising as wish fulfillment and thought control. Using his signature technique of stretching truth and taste just beyond acceptable limits, English forces us to confront the loaded impact of our littered visual landscape.

ONCE UPON A TIME DOWN THERE

Composed of sculpture, political propaganda and historic artifacts, Nyugen Smith’s site specific installation is a fictional museum documenting the colonization of Africa and the West Indies. As told through several bodies of work that span the artist’s career, these salvaged boats, healing elixirs, homemade maps and books, all contribute to the historical contextualization of an imaginary location, where real events have taken place.

ENOUGH ABOUT YOU

Einat Amir’s performance Enough About You is inspired by how our possibilities to socialize have been simplified and altered dramatically due to the numerous meeting possibilities offered by contemporary media. We can read stranger’s diaries and view their family albums long before we have closer contact. We have opportunity to form an opinion in advance, to accept or reject before actually meeting. This work creates a monitored lab where one can observe “authentic” encounters between two strangers who are controlled and guided by an experimental conversation structure created specifically for this piece. The observer also participates, and is monitored and controlled

SCOPE taps into the cultural psyche to present only the most pioneering work across multiple creative disciplines. With over a decade of critically acclaimed art fairs and non-profit initiatives that extend beyond the ordinary in contemporary art. With over 65 art fairs spanning more than a decade, SCOPE is the largest and most global art fair in the world, celebrated as the premier showcase for international emerging contemporary art and multi-disciplinary creative programming.
