    The Pérez Art Museum Miami, 1103 Biscayne Blvd., is the newest landmark to rise on the shores of Biscayne Bay, transforming the city’s downtown skyline. Formerly the Miami Art Museum, the $131 million facility opened last month during Art Basel and Art Week Miami and promises to elevate Miami’s arts scene year-round, with more than 200,000 square feet of programmable indoor and outdoor exhibition space. In addition to galleries, the museum houses a library, auditorium, classrooms, art and digital media workshops, a restaurant and museum shop. Admission is free on the first Thursday and second Saturday of each month. Among the current exhibitions are: Ai Weiwei: According to What? (through March 16), Amelia Peláez: The Craft of Modernity (through Feb. 23) and Americana (through May 1). One of the museum’s most striking exhibition is the installation of historic sailing vessels created by Hew Locke and hanging from the ceiling of the entry. For more information, go to

  • A Day In LGBT South Florida

    A Day In LGBT South Florida

    SFGN Staff

    On November 24, 2018 SFGN assigned its photographers to capture one day in the life of South Florida’s LGBT community. We also asked our readers to submit their own photos.

    Too often in the news we read about the famous, the politicians, or the celebrities. Rarely do we hear about the people that actually make up the LGBT community – from the bartenders, waiters and hairdressers to the retirees and drag queens.

    That’s why this issue celebrates the lives of the everyday LGBT person. These photos are a reminder that the LGBT community is numerous and diverse. We like to play softball, walk our dogs, raise funds for charities, shop, work, eat and play.

    These photos show the normality of being LGBT. We are the same. All of us. We do the same thing. We live and enjoy the same lives as our straight counterparts.

    We all have more in common than we do apart. We are a part of each other.





    Special Thanks to the Photographers:

    J.R. Davis
