“GET YOUR ART ON” this Friday, October 9, as the third season of Art Night in South Miami -now affectionately known as “SOMI Artwalk©” – kicks off.

Held on the second Friday of the month (6p-9p) from October through March, participating businesses throughout the South Miami Town Center serve as host venues showcasing local artists while offering guests some light refreshments.

This is the third season for Art Night South Miami. By walking through our town center, Art Night visitors get to appreciate showcased art while also experiencing the uniqueness of our charming retail business establishments. The courtyard at the First National Bank of South Miami serves as ArtNight Headquarters, where visitors can pick up an ArtNight map and begin their walk through town.

Participating venues cover the length of our town center, from US1 & Sunset to east of Red Road at the Dr. Thomas house, home of the Tropical Audubon Society. As South Miami is a more family-oriented community, many venues display art created by area students. Additionally emerging artists are also featured.

Dressed in vivid artists smocks and greeting visitors, our Art Night Ambassadors will be eye-catching in the town center handing our SOMI Artwalk© maps and answering questions. GET YOUR ART ON t-shirts will be available at the headquarters location in the courtyard of the First National Bank of South Miami, 5750 Sunset Drive.

Special Art Night $3 discounted parking is available at the PLAZA 57 Garage and the surface lots at the First National Bank of South Miami. Both are located on SW 73 Street. Discounted parking coupons are available on line at

Babysitting services are also available at MindWorks Learning Center, 7250 SW 57 Avenue. For reservations, call 305-669- 8383.
