Often called The Arsht Center, Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts is the largest performing arts center in Florida. It is located along Biscayne Boulevard, Omni, downtown Miami. It was constructed in 1929 in an Art Deco style building that pioneered Art Deco designed hotels in Ocean Drive.

The mission of the center is based solely to help the community to feature some of the local and world artists from various music genres. The Arsht Center is known to present world class performances, has a community resource accessible to the visitors that can help educate children and adults alike. It hosts almost 400 performances annually, and around 85% of these events are organized by the center itself. The Miami City Ballet, Florida Grand Opera, and Orchestral Academy of America are internationally acclaimed companies that are residents of the center and play performances at the center as well; a heavenly treat for classical music and contemporary art performance addicts. There are also numerous community based programs offered by the center aiming to be as accessible as possible to many local residents such as Free Sunday Gospel and Family Fest.
