Miami-Dade’s Art in Public Places was not only one of the first public art programs in the country, but it is also one of the most successful. It began in 1973 as a way to get Miami’s art scene out where everyone could enjoy it, and today, it includes over 600 works of art — 24 of which are on display at Miami International Airport. In fact, you may have already seen a few in the scenery surrounding our Airport 24/7: Miami episodes.

Next time you’re in Miami, don’t stop your cultural education at the Art Deco architecture; seek out the county’s public art installations with the help of this map before hitting the party scene.

The sequestration this year has affected airports across the country, including Miami International. Tonight, on an all-new episode of Airport 24/7 at 9|8c, see the consequences first hand, as the employee cuts create bottlenecks and frustration across MIA.

Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano pays a visit to MIA to announce the upcoming budget cuts, which is stressful enough for the airport staff … until a passenger attempts to pass a loaded firearm through security.

On an all-new episode of Burger Land, burger aficionado George Motz explores Tennessee – from Memphis to Nashville – to taste the burgers that make this Southern state proud.

Pride is an understatement when it comes to the deep-fried burgers of Dyer’s in Memphis. One of the oldest burger joints in the country, Dyer’s credits their delicious patties to their 100-year-old grease. In fact, when the restaurant moved to its current Beale Street location, a police escort brought the grease to its new home. Tonight at 9|8c, watch as George dives into this burger and more on Burger Land! Want to know where to get these delicious burgers? Check out our Tennessee Travel Guide for all the details!

Tonight on an all-new episode of Airport 24/7, an accident on the jetway causes a massive water leak. As the water – and the pressure – rises, the Miami-Dade Fire Department scrambles to stop the flooding.

If worse comes to worse, the firefighters will have to shut off the power to the whole concourse, resulting in a major scheduling catastrophe for the airport. Will they be able to shut off the water without resorting to extreme measures? How many thousands of dollars will this cost Miami International Airport?

Find out tonight at 9|8c!

At the airport, there are no “finders-keepers.” If you don’t turn a lost item in to the authorities … you stole it. And at a large airport like Miami International, there are cameras everywhere to catch your every move. Tonight at 9|8c, see how this helps the MIA staff track down thieves.

The security checkpoint at the airport is a popular place for lost items, and when a traveler loses his watch, the TSA agents try their best to find the cherished item.

Then, the action continues when it’s discovered that an airport employee is trapped in the elevator … with a bad case of claustrophobia.

Will TSA agents recover the lost watch? Will the trapped airport employee make it out of the elevator unscathed? Find out what happens tonight on an all-new episode of Airport 24/7: Miami at 9|8c, and check out these behind-the-scenes photos for a sneak peek of tonight’s episode.

Tonight at 9|8c, George heads to northern Mississippi to taste the state’s classic burgers that haven’t changed since the days of the Great Depression. He also gets a bite of a burger that goes nicely with the Mississippi blues.

The “dough” burger became a hit during the WWII era when beef rations were minimal. Burger slingers in the area began adding secret ingredients to the patties to get more out of the beef ration. Many burger joints in northern Mississippi maintain this tradition, bringing people from all over for a taste of the past.

Check out these behind-the-scenes photos, and don’t forget to tune in tonight at 9|8c to feast your eyes on some of the best burgers in Mississippi!

Tonight at 9|8c, an all-new episode of Airport 24/7: Miami goes behind the scenes as Miami International Airport prepares to welcome a legion of Lamborghinis. Lamborghini is taking over Miami to introduce their new Aventador Roadster and to attempt to break the land speed record … using one of MIA’s runways.

But MIA can only close down a runway for so long before delays start and passengers lose their patience. Can MIA organize this event in time? Will the new Lamborghini break the speed record? Tune in tonight to find out!
