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.
