The Momentary
Bentonville, Arkansas
A former Kraft cheese factory is now a sleek contemporary art space that’s free and refreshingly informal. Beverage in hand, wander among galleries and outdoor installations (like Iván Navarro’s series of three water towers), or drink in 360-degree views from the Tower Bar.

Museum of Graffiti
Discover the origins of aerosol art in 1970s New York City, and see works, indoors and out, from internationally acclaimed graffitists at this groundbreaking museum
in Miami’s Wynwood neighborhood, a modern mecca of street art.

If you like IMAX, you’ll love Illuminarium, a new attraction on the city’s BeltLine. A 350-foot wraparound screen is enhanced by piped-in scents (like damp earth in the ongoing Wild: Safari Experience) as well as laser-scanning technology to customize effects as you move (leave footprints on the moon in Spacewalk, coming early 2022).
