Art Lovers’ Guide to Museums in Miami: Fall 2019 Edition
After relaxing by the Atlantic Ocean, head out and explore some of the best museums in Miami. From Miami Beach to Wynwood, and from renowned museums to local galleries, here are the best exhibits to see this fall.
Perez Art Museum
This fall at the Perez Art Museum, see George Segal’s “Abraham’s Farewell to Ishmael.” The 1987 work is on view for the first time since a complete restoration. Segal is famous for his plaster works, which he started creating in the 1960s, and his sculptures are now well-regarded throughout the world.
Institute of Contemporary Art
The late artist Dan Flavin is best known for his work with fluorescent lights. His signature tube light sculptures have been popular in New York and worldwide, and this fall, his 1965 work titled “Puerto Rican light (to Jeanie Blake) 2,” as well as other works from throughout his career, will be on view at the Institute of Contemporary Art.
See the only known collaboration between Renaissance masters Botticelli and Ghirlandaio, a 1492 painting titled the “Coronation of the Virgin.” The artists famously worked together on the iconic decoration of the Sistine Chapel in Vatican City, but “Coronation of the Virgin” is the only single-composition collaborative work by the two artists that survives.
Wynwood Arts District
While in the Wynwood Arts District, check out The Margulies Collection, a 45,000-square-foot warehouse featuring works by Willem de Kooning, Olafur Eliasson, Donald Judd, Sol LeWitt, Isamu Noguchi, George Segal, and many others. And among the endless works of street art, don’t miss the symmetrical compositions, intricate patterns, and lush colors of Maya Hayuk, who has painted iconic outdoor murals throughout the world, including the iconic Houston Bowery Art Wall in New York.
