THINGS TO DO
The Bass Musuem of Art
Opened in 1964 through the donation of a private collection by John and Johanna Bass, the Bass Museum of Art is Miami Beach‘s main contemporary art museum and connects international contemporary art with the museum’s diverse audiences.
The museum opened in what was formerly the Miami Beach Public Library and Art Center, a 1930s Art Deco building designed by Russell Pancoast, grandson of Miami Beach pioneer John Collins. The building itself already had a rich history on Miami Beach as the first public exhibition space for art in South Florida, and was placed on the National Register in 1978.
The Bass Museum of Art presents mid-career and established artists reflecting the spirit and international character of Miami Beach. The Bass seeks to expand the interpretation of contemporary art by incorporating disciplines of contemporary culture, such as design, fashion and architecture, into the exhibition program. The exhibition program encompasses a wide range of media and artistic points of view that bring new thought to the diverse cultural context of Miami Beach.
The Bass Museum of Art is located at 2100 Collins Avenue in Miami Beach and is closed every Monday and Tuesday and is open for all other holidays falling Wednesday through Sunday.
