Art is everywhere this month, you just have to know where and how to spot it. From virtual roses surrounding a stop sign and trippy formations on a building to a cyclone of letters emerging from the sidewalk, augmented-reality pieces are on display throughout Miami as part of Digital Art Month. The Contemporary and Digital Art Fair (CADAF) is behind the public art festival, featuring 50 works installed in the Wynwood and Coconut Grove neighborhoods as well as on Lincoln Road in South Beach. Folks will need to follow an interactive map to find the “exhibitions” and use a QR code at each location to activate the augmented reality filter. From there, you’ll get to snap your favorite works of art and celebrate the experiential event on social media using the hashtag #DigitalArtMonth.
Our list of January events in Miami is usually brimming with parties and outdoor festivals, but 2021 has other plans. The year is getting off to a slow, cautious start with most of the city’s planned happenings rescheduled for down the line or even postponed until 2022. While we await their return, let’s focus on the positive: things to do in January. It’s one of our coldest months but still temperate enough to enjoy a day on any of Miami’s Beaches or picnic at a Miami park. Honestly, it’s pretty much the best time to be outside. If you’re looking for something more seasonal, there’s always a Miami ice skating rink. For more ideas of ways to spend your January in Miami, check our list below.
