Free Events This Week in Miami: Digital Art, Miami Stories, and Indiana Jones

For many Miami youths, today means life is officially over — or less dramatically, school is starting. We feel you. Mondays don't get any easier as life goes on, nor does funding your desperate need for fun. That's where we come in. Thanks to some generous local creatives and business owners, we've got another week's worth of free entertainment lined up for cash-strapped kids of all ages.

Tuesday
  • Asif Farooq at Locust Projects: The Miami-based conceptual artist — currently in the process of meticulously reconstructing a MiG-21 Interceptor from every-day materials — joins the latest Locust Roundtable art discussion.
  • Open Call: Web-Based Art at ICA Miami: The contemporary museum's new exhibit highlights selected submitted digital and web-based art from both emerging and established talent, including Miami artists Willie Avendano, Jillian Mayer, and AdrienneRose.
