Big things are happening in Little Havana. Slowly but surely, artists are creeping in and turning it into a place where new art meets a longstanding culture.
At first sight, Little Havana may seem like an unlikely area for the next artist colony. (Domino Park, Versailles
, and Tower Theatre
are essentially frozen in a time when the first wave of Cuban immigrants arrived in Miami in the 1960's.) But take a closer look. Culture is already abundant, with fairs such as Viernes Culturales,
the Little Havana version of Art Walk. Tourists and locals alike are actually stepping outside of Versailles restaurant after their Media Noche
sandwich and exploring Calle Ocho
by foot with one of the many walking tours now available.
