With summer on the wane and school about to start, it’s a great time to remember one of the best cultural bargains in South Florida: Culture Shock Miami. A program of the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs, Culture Shock offers students from 13 to 22 ultra affordable $5 tickets (or two for $5, if you’re talking museums) to a wide variety of cultural events. And the student can buy a companion ticket for someone of any age for $5 more.
Visit www.cultureshockmiami.com and you’ll find plays (I’ll Eat You Last at GableStage, Ground Up & Rising’s Vincent River at Artistic Vibes, both best for older students), lots of upcoming Festival Miami performances, and opportunities to visit Fairchild Tropical Gardens, the Wolfsonian, the Frost Museum of Science, HistoryMiami and other museums. Events are always being added, so check back often. For information, call 305-375-1949 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Affordable Arts is a weekly feature aimed at helping arts and culture lovers save money on tickets and admissions. A different discount will be featured each Sunday. Have a suggestion? Email Christine Dolen at cdolen@MiamiHerald.com.
