Memorial Day Miami Beach 2019

The City of Miami Beach host their first Memorial Day Weekend arts and culture focused program with local curators Octavia Yearwood and Jared McGriff to produce works about inclusion, blackness and relationships.

Check out these exciting, FREE events happening on Miami Beach this Memorial Day Weekend. 

SATURDAY, MAY 25

  • National Salute To America’s Heroes – Hyundai Air & Sea Show (parachute)
  • 10 AM to 6 PM | Beach viewing from 11 to 14 streets | Display Village along Ocean Drive
  • www.usasalute.com
  • PLAY, LAY, AYE at the Bass
  • Explore a contemporary queer interpretation of tete-a-tete, a classic French design, which translate to “head to head”. The structure acts as an intimate meeting point with its completely open design acting as a declaration, a place to not feel shame or need to justify one’s self. This new design is now a place for openness and outness.
  • 10 AM – 6 PM | The Bass, 2100 Collins Avenue
  • Out of Context by Chris Friday
  • Operating with the belief that education is not limited to a classroom, Friday creates “learning environments”, reflecting information that has undergone a context change, back at the viewer. In this way, Friday investigates themes of Identity, Race, Gender, Sexuality and the effects of popular culture on the perceptions of brown bodies. Friday’s brunch opening will feature an interactive piece surrounding the theme of trust being the currency.
  • Open Reception 10:30 AM – 12 PM | On view for remainder of the day | FIU – Miami Beach Urban Studios, 1618 Washington Avenue
