The City of Miami Beach Hosts 2019 Art Week

—Esteemed Fairs Return to the Winter Epicenter of the Art World—

 

Eighteen years ago, Art Basel — a global show for modern and contemporary art — made its way to the shores of Miami Beach from Basel, Switzerland for its prominent U.S. debut. Today, the success of the dynamic art fair has sparked a cultural movement throughout the urban island, activating art in an array of public spaces, museums and hotels.

“For the 18th consecutive year Miami Beach will be the center of the art world,” shared Mayor Dan Gelber. “Art enthusiasts will experience this international event in the newly renovated Miami Beach Convention Center, and they will also have access to the various Public Art installations throughout our city.”

New this year, the city will be offering Art Week Ambassadors on Thursday, December 5 through Sunday, December 8 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at trolley stops located along Washington Avenue at 10 Street, 15 Street and 17 Street as well as on Collins Avenue and 46 Street. These cultural guides will offer visitors and residents information on the various Art Week art fairs, insight to the exhibits and offerings in Miami Beach’s best cultural institutions, maps on how the Miami Beach Trolley can get them there quickly and comfortably, and fun facts and figures about Miami Beach.

Due to the high number of visitors, the city encourages all to move around town using the free citywide Miami Beach Trolleys. The trolleys will run on their regular schedule, Monday through Saturday from 6 a.m. to midnight and on Sunday from 8 a.m. to midnight.
