10 Fun Things To Do Week of June 14th: Fishing, Drinks, Beats and MORE!
On.Miami proudly presents our newest feature, FUN10, a list of the top 10 things to do in Miami this week, and every week! Every Sunday, we’ll drop a new FUN10, to give you a head start on your week and a heads up on what’s going on over the coming seven days. Check out FUN10 every Sunday for the details on ten awesome events happening around town. It’s a cool read, and a great way to get started planning your entertainment for the week.
Due to the cancellation of so many regularly scheduled events in Miami – with more coming in every hour – we’re focusing this week’s edition of Fun10Miami on fun entertainment you can enjoy in the safety of your own home or while practicing safe ‘social distancing’ while the state begins to open back up.
So what’s on the FUN10 for this week? Read on …
I Remember Miami
What places in Miami stick in your mind while we self-quarantine in our homes? Do you remember how they looked and sounded? Do you remember how you moved around and through them? We want to hear your thoughts—literally!
Together with the Miami Book Fair, the Museum of Art and Design at MDC invites you to share your voice for “I Remember Miami”, a new participatory artwork by the great Spanish artist Dora Garcia.
“I Remember Miami” asks members of the public to recall a specific location in Miami. As you walk through the space in your mind, describe your memories out loud and record your voice to create an audio portrait of that place.
Then, pick a photo, either of your current surroundings or of something that reminds you of the place you just described. You can record your story in any language.
This collection of individual memories, juxtaposed with present environments or evocative objects, will become “I Remember Miami”, a unique “time capsule” that represents our city during an unprecedented time in our history.
SUBMIT YOUR WORK:
Submissions are accepted through June 30, 2020. Follow the Facebook & Instagram channels of MOAD (@moadmdc) and the Miami Book Fair (@miamibookfair) for artist selections & the latest updates!
