Interama: Miami and the Inter-American Dream


What to do, what to do….

While we all wait patiently for our faithful friend Bacardi to sponsor another fabulous event, lets get some culture in us, eh?
There are a number of interesting options at the various museums and art centers around South Florida.

One to check out this week is Interama: Miami and the Inter-American Dream at the Historical Museum of Southern Florida.

Walk into a re-creation of Interama—Miami’s futuristic fair of the Americas from the 1960s. Under development for decades, Interama was never built, but captured the imagination of planners, architects and public officials during an era when Miami increasingly perceived itself as a hemispheric crossroads.

Sounds interesting. And I can’t help but chuckle over the line, “Under development for decades, Interama was never built…” Some things never change.

Interama is on display until Jan 2009 at the museum. Now don’t going using that as an excuse to put it off until later. You know we will have more than enough activities coming up in the next months to keep us all busy until the new year.

Transportation is easy. The museum is located inside the Miami Dade Cultural Center next to Government Center Station. Any bus that goes downtown to the Government Center Station will get you there quick and easy.

OK, maybe not quick and easy, but you’ll get there eventually. And with a story to tell, no doubt.
