The front gallery space at Seven Miami is a room full of words. Walk in the doors, and you'll naturally move from left to right to follow the text, from Bob and Roberta Smith's corner, filled with colorfully painted signs telling a story, to William Powhida's collection of notebook sketches -- by which we mean sketches of notebook pages on which the artist has written lists and letters. Of course, there's plenty of less literal art here, too. But if you love reading (and since you're reading this, we'll assume you do), you'll want to stay as long as it takes to digest every word.
Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
