Miami Art Museum, a modern and contemporary art museum located in downtown Miami, FL, is dedicated to collecting and exhibiting international art of the 20th and 21st centuries with an emphasis on the cultures of the Atlantic Rim—the Americas, Europe and Africa—from which the vast majority of Miami residents hail. Miami Art Museum (MAM) serves one of the most diverse and fast-growing regions of the country, where a confluence of North and Latin American cultures adds vibrancy and texture to the civic landscape. MAM embraces its role as a cultural anchor and touchstone in a city that welcomes countless ethnic and age groups, lifestyles and ideas.
Miami Art Museum's far-ranging vision is expressed in the breadth and depth of its exhibition program. In 2009, Miami Art Museum premiered the most comprehensive survey of works by Argentine artist Guillermo Kuitca ever presented in North America. In 2010, the Museum organized an exhibition of interactive works by Carlos Cruz-Diez, one of Latin America’s most important living masters, and a group exhibition of new works by Miami-based artists. In November 2010, Miami Art Museum opened Susan Rothenberg’s first South Florida exhibition, the artist’s first museum show in over a decade. Miami Art Museum has also recently presented exhibitions of works by Janet Cardiff and George Buress Miller, Quisqueya Henriquez, Wifredo Lam, and Yinka Shonibare.
The New MAM: Growing Miami, Growing Miami Art Museum
Miami Art Museum (MAM) serves one of the most diverse populations in one of the fastest growing regions in the country, where a unique confluence of Caribbean, North and South American cultures adds vibrancy and texture to the civic landscape. The city's thriving community of artists, designers, and collectors and its avid and growing art-engaged public are driving Miami's demand for a world-class museum and dynamic center of visual arts education.
To meet this demand, MAM has entered into a public/private partnership with the City of Miami and Miami-Dade County to build a new MAM facility. A dramatic location on Biscayne Bay has been provided by the City of Miami, the voters of Miami-Dade County have approved $100 million in bond funding, and private donors have already committed more than $50 million in additional support for the building and institutional endowment. The new MAM will transform Museum Park into a central destination on Miami's cultural map, promote progressive arts education, build community cohesiveness, and contribute substantially to downtown revitalization.
