Best free things to do in Miami this week from November 29 – December 5, 2021

Cube Art Fair

Non-replaceable tokens are all the rage, so it’s not surprising that there’s an NFT art fair during Miami Art Week. Cube Art Fair is a public art fair that takes over 50 billboard locations in Brickell, downtown, Overtown, Wynwood, and Edgewater. Of course, the one percent flying into Opa-locka Executive Airport gets their own version of the exchange, with NFTs for sale displayed on every screen on the airport’s private hangers. With everyone going crazy over NFTs – a lot of them aren’t very good and probably won’t hold their value in the long run – Miami Art Week might see the medium reach a new level of hype, and Cube will likely have a big part in it play . Wednesday 1 December to Friday 5 December at various locations; cubeartfair.com. Admission is free.

“Metaversal_Language” at Time Out Market

Starting Wednesday, Time Out Market and Blackdove Project will host “Metaversal_Langugage”, an NFT exhibition curated by Jess Conatser and featuring the work of Datasynced, Red, Kenneth Alexander, Ben Heim and Sasha Stiles. As part of the show, there will be a panel discussion led by Time Out Miami editor Virginia Gil at 6:30 PM on Wednesday, December 1. There will also be a cocktail reception by Mezcal Amarás and music by DJ Ear Candy. Wednesday, December 1 through Friday, December 5 at Time Out Market Miami, 1601 Drexel Ave., Miami Beach; 786-753-5388; timeoutmarket.com/miami. Admission is free.

Flagler Street Art Festival

Developer Moishe Mana flexes his muscles during Miami Art Week and launches the inaugural Flagler Street Art Festival. The event is a collaboration between Mana Common and the Urban Impact Lab – and it’s a bit of a misnomer. Yes, street art will feature in the event, but everyone’s favorite new art medium, non-fungible tokens (NFT), will also be featured. The week-long celebration will unveil 15 new murals commissioned by Mana Public Arts, which will be painted live throughout the week, as well as the debut of IlluMia, an interactive nightlife experience projected onto the facades of the buildings along Flagler Street. There will also be workshops on NFTs by ArtRepublic. Thursday, December 2 through Sunday, December 5 at 150 E. Flagler St., Miami; flaglerstreetartfestival.com. Entry is free with RSVP at eventbrite.com.
