It is a lifestyle brand with a clear road map of bringing highly creative experiences filled with unique activations, events, and sculpture parks,” said Graziano.

Art With Me’s innovative approach focuses on well-balanced and complete experiences across six- core pillars: Art With Me, Dance With Me, Eat With Me, Breathe With Me, Play With Me, and Care With Me.
Art With Me brings together artists from around the world to participate with our installations, workshops, talks, environmental design experiences, and create a space for our guests to enjoy one-on-one interactions and dialogues with our creators.
The most fundamental human experiences have been tied to music for centuries. It’s such an important part of our culture and history. Dance With Me harnesses this power, celebrates the splendor of different cultures and embraces our beautiful planet while creating unforgettable experiences around the world with international and local artists. It’s a dream come true!
There are but a few activities that connect us more directly to the Earth than the act of eating. Eat With Me events serve to reinforce community within the Art With Me family worldwide. Guests will take part in premium culinary experiences with juice bars, food truck vendors and concessions. YUM! I’m thinking about food already!
BreathWithMe, another core pillar, will offer participants a full array of wellness programs from drum circles to yoga, from temazcales to plant medicine healing. It’s going to be amazing! You’ll come face to face with a new vision of what it means to care for yourself—and others.
Providing children the opportunity to engage with art in a meaningful and immersive manner is a critical step toward preserving the artist in each of us. Play with Me’s instructors create and oversee a curriculum that gives children an experience that will positively impact them throughout their lives.
Care With Me is a 501c3 Non-Profit Organization that is here to bring awareness and positive change through cultivating inspirational art and educational experiences for local communities and the environment. So while you take in the sights of Miami and enjoy some art, you’ll be helping out a charity do some good in the world. Soothe your soul while you soothe others.
