Mana Public Arts and Urban Impact Lab announce the Flagler Street Art Festival to take place during the week of Art Basel 2021. The event is ushering in a new era for Downtown’s Flagler District – now undergoing a $27 million transformation – with a celebration featuring new world-class murals, digital art installations and outdoor lounge spaces.

The celebration begins Nov. 30 and continues through Dec. 5, centered on the 100 block of Flagler Street.

For this edition of Art Week, we’re putting the focus back on the Flagler District. From nightlife events and art activations, to tech workshops and informative talks, this festival brings in the best creative minds. We’re activating the area with events that create a lasting impact in the neighborhood and reinforce our mission of revitalization.

Moishe Mana, Chairman & Founder, Mana Common

Mana Public Arts will be unveiling 15 new murals in the Flagler District that will remain on view indefinitely, transforming the neighborhood into a year-round walkable cultural landmark that reflects Miami’s history and future. Entrepreneur Moishe Mana will be lending high-rise building facades for several installations set to transform Miami’s skyline. On the street level, art and tech will come together for IlluMia, a digital and light art event presented by Urban Impact Lab that celebrates the neighborhood’s future as a center for innovation. Along the 100 block of Flagler Street, the public can take part in NFT workshops for new and experienced collectors, view digital art galleries and exhibitions, or start a guided tour of the Miami Mural Festival.

A new era has begun for Downtown Miami - and Miami Art Week is the perfect time to celebrate. Join thousands of people — visitors, artists, the tech community and other Miamians — in seeing how art and innovation are transforming one of Miami’s original neighborhoods.

The festival will also offer information on all Art Week programming in the Flagler District and Downtown Miami, in partnership with the Miami Downtown Development Authority.

Downtown Miami has emerged as the nexus of South Florida’s live, work, play lifestyle, and we are thrilled to showcase our region and everything it has to offer during one of the most anticipated times of the year. As the Flagler Beautification Project continues making progress, this free and open to the public art festival is the latest example of the world-class events and art exhibits we are bringing to our historic ‘Main Street'.

Christina Crespi, Executive Director, Miami Downtown Development Authority

The Flagler Street Art Festival is happening with the support of Miami Downtown Development Authority, Florida International University’s College of Communication, Architecture and The Arts, Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau, HistoryMiami Museum, Live Arts Miami, Miami-Dade Beacon Council, Perez Art Museum Miami, and Wynwood Business Improvement District.
