The Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau (GMCVB) ramps up opportunities to showcase Greater Miami and Miami Beach’s rich cultural history and diverse heritage by kicking off its Art of Black Miami cultural programming for the 2022 arts season.
Officially launched in 2014, the GMCVB’s Multicultural Tourism & Development Department (MTDD) developed the Art of Black Miami as a 365-day marketing platform and destination promotion that showcases the visual arts and artists locally, nationally and internationally celebrating the Black Diaspora.

“The Art of Black Miami programming has continued to expand over the past eight years,” said David Whitaker, president & CEO of the GMCVB. “The program, which further positions Greater Miami and Miami Beach as a leading and inspiring multicultural destination, celebrates the unique talent developed in our community, and establishes a platform for artists to exhibit their skills while gaining valuable exposure.”
Events for the upcoming arts season will be rolled out via curated art initiatives organized by local art organizations, galleries and spaces in neighborhoods throughout Historic Overtown, Little Haiti, Little Havana, Opa-locka, North Miami, Design District, Downtown Miami, South Dade and Miami Beach. Festivities will kick-off on November 16th with a GMCVB Coffee & Conversation featuring Miami Arts, Culture & Heritage Months. Presenters, John Copeland, director of Cultural Tourism and Petra Brennan, director of Tourism Business Enhancement will share updates, news and information about Miami Art Week 2022 and how the GMCVB is encouraging visitors and residents alike to explore all that Greater Miami and Miami Beach has to offer.
“Art of Black Miami honors the spirit of Miami Art Week by bringing awareness to extremely talented, diverse local artists,” stated Connie Kinnard, GMCVB’s senior vice president, Multicultural Tourism & Development Department. “The global arts community has its eyes on Greater Miami and Miami Beach giving us an opportunity to showcase the cultural diversity of our artists, organizations and galleries celebrating our neighborhoods and communities year-round. This year, we welcome visitors and residents to our in-person events, putting forward a robust array of artists who express their creativity across different media, showcasing stories that make our communities uniquely beautiful.”
The Art of Black Miami brand has grown into a cultural powerhouse featuring prominent Black Miami artists including Marcus Blake, Addonis Parker and Purvis Young, along with other influential and up-and-coming artists in the community. Last year, the GMCVB expanded the platform with the introduction of the Art of Black Miami Podcast Series offering a space for Miami-based artists to lead engaging conversations about how their style of work is represented and influenced by Miami’s unique landscape.
This year’s Art of Black Miami events continue to raise the bar for the program, featuring artists from across the United States, the Caribbean, Latin America and other parts of the world, featuring curated exhibitions, performances, artists’ talks, films, pop-up events and mural unveilings.
