Art lovers flock to Miami in huge masses every year during the world-famous Art Basel week. But, locals get to enjoy museums, sculptures, and street art all year long. In recent years, plenty of public art displays have been popping up in places like the Design District and the City of Coral Gables. Due to the pandemic, some museums decided to display their art outdoors. From this decision came the partnership between the City of Doral and the Doral Contemporary Art Museum.
Manolo Valdés is one of the most celebrated Spanish contemporary artists. His award-winning works have been displayed in museums all over the world, including the Guggenheim in New York City. His influences include Rembrandt, Matisse, Picasso, amongst others. The colors and lighting express a sensation of tactility in his large scales works.
Manolo Valdes The Legacy sculptures are all over Doral’s public parks. These particular sculptures can be seen at Downtown Doral Park.
And since I don’t go anywhere where food and drink is not part of the trip, I made sure I went to Bachour, located right across from the park, as they have a great Happy Hour!
