Concrete Paradise: Miami Marine Stadium

The opening event will be spectacular, featuring parkour athletes, a performance by VJ Psyberpixie, Bacardi cocktails,
and even racing hydroplanes parked out front! In preparation for over a year, this first-ever exhibition is devoted to the
Miami Marine Stadium's flashy past, its edgy present, and its
spectacular proposed comeback as a world-class sports and performance venue.
Curated by renowned author and architectural conservator, Rosa Lowinger, this interactive exhibit will bring the glory days of Miami's most daringly modern structure back to life through stunning video footage, rare photos and keepsakes, original art installations, photo murals of the stadium's infamous graffiti, and an antique hydroplane. It will conclude with a special section dedicated to the stadium's next chapter featuring never before seen site renderings and opportunities for museum visitors to share their vision for the structure's future.
The exhibition is being presented by American Express. We wish to thank our partners, the Coral Gables Museum
and the National Trust for Historic Preservation
for the tremendous job they have done. Finally, we'd also like to acknowledge our Cliff Mezey, a member of our Board who came up with the idea for the exhibit almost two years ago.
In addition to the exhibit itself, we have a full lineup of programs we will be highlighting in future notices to you. Coming up soon: October 24-The Future of the Miami Marine Stadium-a panel discussion and on November 6-Boat Racing in Miami-Past and Future-a panel discussion.
