Appropriate for teachers of all subject areas and grade levels; and CGM Members, too!
Don't miss this amazing day of activities hosted at the Museum and the Miami Marine Stadium!
This professional development workshop will focus on Miami-Dade County's most intriguing landmark and the subject of our upcoming exhibit, the Miami Marine Stadium.
Participants will enjoy a VIP site visit to the Stadium (which is closed to the public) to deepen their understanding of its location, architecture and its current use as an underground art venue. Participants will also receive a curator-led tour of Concrete Paradise: The Miami Marine Stadium, the first ever museum exhibit devoted to the Miami Marine Stadium’s flashy past, edgy dilapidated present, and its spectacular proposed comeback as a world class sports and performance venue. Participants will then hear from the architect Hilario Candela and a representative and activist of the Friends of the Miami Marine Stadium, the local nonprofit dedicated to the preservation and public re-opening of the stadium. Following the workshop, teachers will be encouraged to implement a lesson plan or provide a written reflection inspired by their experience.
