At the new Avenues of Expression at HistoryMiami, experience the colors, smells, tastes and blur of Miami's collision of culture and movement. From cafecitos to food vendors, to parades and protests, this playful exhibition showcases street life that's unique to Miami and icons that may have grown invisible from familiarity – the home shrine, for example, or the stickers on a street sign. Presented by the museum’s South Florida Folklife Center with the support of the National Endowment for the Arts, Avenues of Expression runs through Jan. 13, 2019.
