ARTS IN THE PARKS

Arts in the Parks launched in 2006 in response to the results of community surveys and focus groups that indicated residents would like to see more free cultural events. The Miami Beach Arts in the Parks program hopes to increase the community rating of cultural activities, which is part of the City's overall strategic plan. For more information on Arts in the Parks, contact Gary Farmer, Cultural Affairs Manager, at 305.673.7577.
