Bal Harbour’s Art Nights Finale
Courtesy Bal Harbour Village
For the past two winter seasons, visitors to Florida’s Bal Harbour Shops have been able to browse through more than just the outdoor plaza’s 100-plus luxury boutiques. They’ve also been able to enjoy an array of special installations, performances and artist appearances while they shop—the product of a village-sponsored event series, Bal Harbour Art Nights. On March 29, the series will wrap up its second year with a finale of special free programs, all to be held at the shopping center between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. The offerings will include a courtyard exhibit of light-catching wire-mesh sculptures by artist Sara Modiano and a reading and signing of painter Diego Singh’s first monograph, “Table for One,” at the Books & Books shop. More artwork will be on display at several of the Shops’ fashion boutiques—including drawings by Miami street artist Santiago Rubino at Jimmy Choo; a book launch by photographer Iran Issa-Khan at Oscar de la Renta; and a children’s art program co-sponsored by the Miami Children’s Museum and artist Stephan Dominique at the Oxygene boutique. Following the Bal Harbour Art Nights finale, at 9 p.m., the St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort will host a dinner and auction (tickets $200) to support the Sara Modiano Foundation for the Arts. http://www.balharbourflorida.com.
