How do the world’s most affluent top off the purchase of a mega yacht this weekend? With champagne and contemporary art, of course, at Art Wynwood! Miami’s famed President’s Day holiday weekend, generating billions in boat and art sales, is connecting this year with VIP shuttle service that links the two major exhibitions–Miami International Boat Show and Art Wynwood.
From February 12-16, 70 international galleries will present emerging, cutting edge, contemporary and modern works, highlighting street art, murals, pop surrealism and other genres from the contemporary underground movement. Now in its fourth year, this year’s installation of Art Wynwood will feature a special project, SOLO Miami, highlighting five of Miami’s most internationally reviewed and regarded galleries, which will appear together to present solo exhibitions premiering exciting new work by consequential local artists.
Highlights to look forward to during the fair include:
The Art Wynwood VIP Preview on Feb. 12
Art Wynwood Lifetime Artistic Achievement Award honoring Mel Ramos on Feb. 13
Art Walk on Feb. 14
