MIAMI (CBSMiami) – It’s a feast for the eyes as well as the palate at the all new Hard Rock Stadium.
On Thursday afternoon, the Miami Dolphins showcased the renovated stadium to the media as a truly global entertainment destination.
“Miami has become a center of culture for food, music and sports,” Miami Dolphins President and CEO Tom Garfinkel said. “And we want this facility to represent that in an authentic way.”
First up, art is everywhere thanks to a new collaboration with Goldman Global Arts, which is transforming Hard Rock Stadium into a public art experience.
Jessica Goldman Srebnick of Wynwood Walls has curated street artists from around the world to bring life to 19 murals throughout the concourses.
“No matter where you’re sitting, and you go out into the concourses, you will be surrounded by art . And you will feel good, be inspired and think a little differently,” Srebnick said.
The stadium is also cooking up some great food.
Old favorites are back as well as new notables.
Grown, owned by former Miami Heat player Ray Allen and his wife Shannon, is bring the first fully organic restaurant to a U.S. sports venue.
“Organic means clean food. We don’t put anything in food – pesticides, GMO free. We want people getting from benefits of eating clean food,” Ray Allen said.
And a proven South Florida winner comes to the stadium this season: Shula Burger.
Dave Shula rolled it out.
“It’s one of those no brainers. It’s like why weren’t we here before? We’ve been very successful for 27 years, so we’re happy to bring it to Dolphins fans. It’s a great fit,” he said.
