Stay on the mainland: Your guide to the art tents and pop ups in Miami

Who says all the art is on the beach?

Well, it’s not. On the mainland, nothing screams the beginning of season like the white art tens going up in Midtown. If Wynwood is calling your name,  HIVE is literally abuzz with street art and pop up installations. In downtown, the unique Jimmy’s Thrift has opened shop, and Brickell City Centre is getting in on the action with the girl power collection, Fair. (including Yoko Ono’s traveling “Wish Tree”).
