CityPlace Doral puts variety of arts into spotlight
CityPlace Doral is bringing together an arts and cultural initiative to welcome more visitors to its open-air shopping, wellness and entertainment experience.
With recent collaborations with Miami Dolphins for a “305 Day,” mural featuring Latin artist El Chan Guri for the “Art Wall Alley” mural and “Transcendence,” an exhibition featuring graffiti paintings reflective of the generations and upbringings of six local graffiti artists, guests can now come out and visit the South Florida Women Artists at Large Exhibition and Veza Sur’s Super Abuela 20-foot floating attraction, which are on display at the lifestyle destination at 8300 NW 36th St.
Teaming up with Doral Contemporary Art Museum [DORCAM], CityPlace is putting together arts & cultural and fashion week events for this month that will activate the whole plaza, said Claudia Marquez, CityPlace Doral’s marketing manager.
“We are also working with DORCAM and finalizing the details to place Manolo Valdés sculptures here at CityPlace,” she said.
“Manolo Valdés: The Legacy” is currently installed at main public parks, including Doral Central Park, Downtown Doral Park, MAU Park, Morgan Levy Park, Doral Legacy Park and Doral Glades Park. The exhibition is to be on display through June.
“We have been seeing people comeback slowly and implementing social distancing,” Ms. Marquez said. “They are checking out the cinemas [CMX CinéBistro] and Kings Miami bowling with balloons and doing some celebrating.”
Adding to the array of entertainment, CMX CinéBistro Doral is going to add UFC fights to its showtime programming starting April 24, “a format no one else is doing for the UFC fights,” said Matt Russell, CMX’s vice president of operations.
With leasing currently 90%, the center’s vacant retail spaces are being used as pop-ups where visitors can experience the temporary “305 Day” wall art mural and even ongoing pet adoption events with the county.
“South Florida is a community of cultures and creativity built on diversity,” said Mauro Olivieri, general manager at CityPlace Doral. “This arts and culture initiative is a reflection of this momentum to bring neighborhood programs and projects to our center year-round.”
