Located just steps from the Miami Beach Convention Center, where Art Basel Miami Beach is hosted each year, Lincoln Road is a walkable metropolitan museum featuring a wide array of works including Dan Graham’s mainstay Steel & Glass Concave, a fun house-like homage to Lincoln Road’s renowned architect Morris Lapidus; a mural inside H&M by local Cuban-American artist ABSTRK that bridges the gap between Miami Beach’s art deco architecture and the compositional lines of gestural graffiti; Carlos Alves’ intervention of the 1960s Save Our Reef fountain, with ceramic mosaic tiles depicting underwater scenes, offering an underlying message of conservation and the natural beauty of the shoreline; and a captivating work by contemporary artist Bradley Theodore on the exterior wall of Chotto Matte that celebrates the restaurant’s Peruvian roots with colorful icon depictions. If you haven’t been to Lincoln Road in a while, it’s definitely time to take a stroll;
