Look no further than the palette that is the historic
Art Deco cityscape to understand that Miami Beach
has been a source of artistic inspiration as far back as the 1920s.

Today, Miami Beach attracts art enthusiasts with its
internationally renowned institutions and exhibits.
In fact, the region’s first public exhibition space for
fine arts was Miami Beach’s Bass Museum of Art –
today the centerpiece of the city’s Cultural Arts
Neighborhood District Overlay, CANDO, which includes arts-related, mixed-use and community gathering spaces.

Miami Beach’s role is to host the largest contemporary
art fair in the Americas – Art Basel Miami Beach –
that cements its place as a trend-setting cultural destination.
