Teen Miami is a cross-decade exploration of teen history and culture in Miami. Visitors will learn how Miami adolescents were impacted by World War II and the Vietnam War, listen to the sounds created by local teen garage bands and R&B stars of the 1960s, examine the role teens played in integrating Miami’s high schools, and view the distinct fashion statements made by them through the decades. This exhibition has been organized by HistoryMiami in conjunction with 20 Miami-Dade County students participating in a three-year museum internship program. Exhibition sponsors include the AT&T Foundation, the Institute of Museum & Library Services and Miami-Dade County.
At the kick-off party, guests will enjoy burgers, fries and shakes as well as the sounds of DJ Zelda. Teens will gain all-access to the Teen Lounge. Admission is free for HistoryMiami members, $10 for others and $7 for teens. Discounted parking at the Cultural Plaza Garage, 50 NW 2 Avenue. Please RSVP by September 19 to 305.375.5356 or email: RSVP@historymiami.org.
