Miami is a dynamic destination for art anytime of year with a slew of contemporary art galleries, state-of-the-art museums and mural-splashed Wynwood. Even after Art Basel Miami Beach in December, Miami’s not done with cutting edge contemporary art fairs. Art Wynwood was established in February 2012 over Presidents’ Day Weekend by the same team that produces Art Miami during Art Basel Miami Beach.

Art Wynwood will be held from February 14-18, 2019 at One Herald Plaza overlooking Biscayne Bay in Downtown Miami in conjunction with the Miami Yacht Show whose boats will be docked in the adjacent marina. This is the first time that these two premiere Presidents’ Day Weekend Miami events have merged locations and it will create a dynamic atmosphere for patrons of the arts and the great outdoors.

Art Wynwood’s curatorial focus is on emerging contemporary talent, mid-career artists and blue chip post-war modern masters. The fair routinely draws over 25,000 patrons during the long weekend and showcases the works of over 180 artists from 60 international galleries including Germany, Chile, Russia, France and the United Kingdom. Miami galleries represented at Art Wynwood include Avant Gallery and European Design & Art. Last year, patrons admired and acquired important works by artists including Banksy, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Alexander Calder, Marc Chagall, Ed Ruscha, Andy Warhol and Ai Weiwei.

The weekend comes with a plethora of brunches and cocktail receptions in the VIP lounge, as well as private tours of the fair arranged for museum groups and professionals.

A VIP opening reception will be held on Thursday, February 14 to give patrons the first chance at acquiring new works on display and it benefits the new ICA, Miami museum in the Design District. The fair is open to the public Friday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Monday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. One-day passes are $25 or you can purchase a multi-day pass for $55. VIP passes are also available for $200.

Whether you’re a budding art enthusiast or a serious collector, Art Wynwood has something for everyone and proves to be a highlight of the art fair season in Miami. This year, will be even more enjoyable with the Miami Yacht Show right outside on the docks of beautiful Biscayne Bay.
