We've got some big events the next several weeks! 
    Celebrate the Marine Stadium's 50th Birthday With 
us on Sunday, December 22! 

This December, the Miami Marine Stadum turns 50! To celebrate, we are hosting a screening of the Elvis Presley film "Clambake"-scenes of which were shot at the Marine Stadium in 1967. The evening will include a "Latin Clambake" featuring paella, a cash bar, and a comfy seat to watch the film. The event will be outdoors  in the patio (indoors if necessary) at the Coral Gables Museum, currently featuring the exhibit "Concrete Paradise, Miami Marine Stadium".

Tickets must be purchased in advance and are only $25.
To purchase tickets, call 800-838-3006 and ask for "Clambake" or click here

This will be a truly special night and a fun way to show your support! We're even hosting the lucky individuals who attended the original opening of the Marine Stadium. Our event is sponsored by the Miami Parrot Head Club, comprised of fans of Jimmy Buffett, undoubtedly the most beloved of all Marine Stadium performers. "There has not been a single event that has united fans of Jimmy Buffett more than that August, 1985 LIVE BY THE BAY Concert at the Miami Marine Stadium" said Brenda Braley, President of Miami Parrot Heat Club. The people who were there still talk about about it 28 years later while the rest of us dream that it will happen again."

With your help, it will! Come join us and celebrate a landmark year for the Marine Stadium!
AUDEMARS PIGUET and Galerie Perrotin are proud to present "Curiosity" a Monumental Artwork
by Kolkoz at Miami Marine Stadium
 for Art Basel 

The installation will be open for public viewing at the following times:

Saturday, December 7, 12:00 PM-10:00 PM
Sunday, December 8, 10:00 AM-4:00 PM

This installation will surely launch our beloved stadium onto the international stage of iconic architecture. Benjamin Moreau and Samuel Boutruche who make up Kolkoz have long explored the relationship between the real and virtual realms. This snowy scene-a Swiss Chalet- floats in the Marine Stadium basin opposite the Marine Stadium, creating a dialogue with the stadium. The installation can be accessed by barge, presenting a waterside view of the stadium. The stadium will also be lit on Saturday night, making the tableau even more remarkable.

Our partners, the National Trust for Historic Preservation, will be greeting visitors in the Marine Stadium parking lot near the installation with a unique offer-a chance to win two spots on a behind-the- scenes tour of the stadium with the architect himself, Hilario Candela.

They will also have a stadium inspired photo booth so you can commemorate Art Basel 2013. Swing by on Saturday or Sunday and keep an eye out for them!

This event
was curated and produced by MA3 Agency , a New York based creative consultancy. We would like to thank MA3 Agency, Miami based ACT Productions, the City of Miami, DERM, and
Friends of Miami Marine Stadium Advisory Board Member Vinson Richter who all did an incredible job of working through the very complex logistics of this project in a very short time frame. Because of their work, our effort to save and restore the Marine Stadium is going to benefit through enormous international exposure.
