THURSDAY, 12/1, 7pm: Be What You Dream: Mexican Artist Night

Day One: Be What You Dream — this mantra comes from the incredible artist, Diana Garcia. She left this reminder on our walls a few years ago, and this year she’s leaving another mark.

Once you’ve gotten your fill of exhibitions on the town, head back to Freehand Miami for a night of music, fashion and art.
