Second Saturday Art Walk Guide: Five Shows to See This Month

For most Wynwood galleries, August's Second Saturday Art Walk brings all the excitement of a Marlins home game. During the sweltering dog days of summer, many larger spaces shutter their doors for vacation while preparing for the upcoming high season. Those who do open for the art crawl often feature hold-over exhibits.

But for some, such as Black Square Gallery director Anna Milashevych, the hottest month of the year is the perfect time to rise above the noise and introduce audiences to exciting new talent.

"Yes, summer is traditionally a slow time for the galleries," says Milashevych. "[But] I can say there are still many collectors and tourists coming to Miami," adds the Ukrainian dealer who finds August the perfect month to explore unusual media.

And she is not alone. Here are our picks for what not to miss during this weekend's rollicking arts bash, offering something unexpected for everyone beginning at 6 p.m. this Saturday.
