Brickell Gallery Night combines art, music and fashion one night of the month in the heart of Brickell. Grab a gelato and check out the kiosks selling artisanal items around the Shops of Mary Brickell Village, then visit some of the businesses that participate in the cultural event.
Gallery Night is celebrating its second anniversary this December. It was founded to bring the local community together through art, as well as provide opportunities for the business community to network and support local artists and cultural institutions.
