Free Art Fridays at Various Locations
All day Friday, free
Friday: It's the end of the workweek, the beginning of debauched fun, the only song for which Rebecca Black will ever be known. But Friday is so much more than all of that. It’s also a chance to score some original art. Free Art Fridays is a worldwide art movement that has made its way to Miami, and the city’s chapter, founded by local artist and promoter Registered Artist, strives to unite artists, art collectors, and anyone who loves a good scavenger hunt. Every Friday, artists hide their work around the city, and whoever finds it gets to take it home for free.
