Miami Beach’s contemporary art museum, founded in 1964.
Contacts & Details
Founded in 1964 through the donation of a private collection by John and Johanna Bass, this is the first public exhibition space for art in South Florida and was placed on the National Register in 1978.
Located in the heart of Miami Beach, The Bass reopened on October 29, 2017, after concluding its massive transformation. Renovation works were undertaken by architects Arata Isozaki and David Gauld, who included three new galleries, a museum store and cafe, and a designated education facility to enhance its dynamic programme of contemporary art exhibitions.
During the Miami Art Week 2019, the museum will remain extraordinarily open on Monday and Tuesday, December 2 and 3, from 10.00 am to 5.00 pm.
