Miami is for (Art) Lovers <3

When you think of Miami, several things come to mind. The gorgeous weather of course, the beaches, booming nightlife, Basketball Wives even, lol ๐Ÿ™‚ These things are all great, but one thing I did not know is that Miami has a treasure chest full of art waiting to be discovered.

While in Miami, we visited the Haitian Heritage Museum located in Miami’s Design District. It was an amazing experience filled with great art!

The host was very welcoming and informative, urging us to come back for Art Basel Miami which showcases art both on the national and international front. Check it out!
