SOMIartwalk © is a FREE event in the heart of South Miami Town Center. Held on the second Friday of each month from October through March, pedestrian-friendly South Miami bustles with local artists, as participating retail venues open their doors and invite you to stroll around SOMI.
Art is in the eye of the beholder and on the second Friday of each month, you become the beholder. Diversity is the spice of life, and art is no different. For every opinion there is a form of art to fit: impressionism, avant-garde, cubism, still life, water color, acrylic, photography and the performing arts…
Enjoy the visual and performing arts while walking the tree-lined sidewalks in our historic South Miami shopping and dining district. Not only do you get to appreciate different art forms, but you get to see what makes SOMI so unique.
Don't miss out on all the FUN from the SOMIartwalk ©!

I'm pleased to serve as coordinator for this our sixth season of art night in South Miami. SOMI is so unique and different and with our SOMIartwalk © we get to showcase what makes our community and town center so special.
Unlike other communities which have multiple art galleries and host art night events, South Miami relies on its tree-lined sidewalks and responsive retail establishments to host artists. Students from area schools join the event by participating in the "SOMI SIDEWALK SHOWCASE", featuring the visual and performing arts.
The genius of the South Miami event is the focus on our area's trendy boutique and dining district with local visual and performing artists to make a very special family-oriented "hometown" art event.
