Miami is a magnet for creative energy and an emerging art center of the Americas. It has developed its own identity infused with cultural and geographic patterns expressed in color, landscape, architecture and interior design.

Worldwide attention focused on Miami’s art scene with the arrival of Art Basel, the prestigious winter show, when thousands of artists, collectors and art lovers from around the world descend on the city for an annual celebration of modern, contemporary and emerging art. Simultaneously, the transformation of a warehouse district in Wynwood created an art district with galleries, studios, private collections and a stunning collection of large scale graffiti with masterpieces by world renowned artists. The nearby Miami Design District is a neighborhood dedicated to showcasing international design with furniture and design showrooms, unique stores, restaurants, cafes, creative studios and residential lofts in historic buildings. On Miami Beach you’ll find a remarkable collection of boutique hotels and imperturbably luxurious Lincoln Road in the Art Deco District. The Villa Vizcaya and City of Coral Gables embody the essence of an earlier period of design reflecting European ideals and Hispanic roots. And throughout the city are art, architecture and design that reveal the essence of the city and its unique sense of place.
