Art Wynwood, Miami’s five-day International Contemporary Art Fair, will take place during Presidents Day Weekend and Yachts Miami Beach - South Florida’s busiest holiday weekend - and will open with its highly anticipated VIP Preview, Thursday, February 11, from 6pm to 10pm, presented by Merrill Lynch.
The 2016 edition solidifies the Fair’s reputation as the winter season’s premier art fair with this year’s roster of 70 international galleries presenting emerging, cutting edge, contemporary and modern works of art. The annual Presidents Day Weekend fair presents a dynamic array of works from street artists and muralists, emerging young talent, and world-renowned contemporary and modern artists. Regarded for its distinct identity among Miami art fairs, Art Wynwood will further be set apart further by its unique approach to audience engagement, as characterized by a new exhibition on the ‘60s, a focus on Miami institutions, and Shark Tank Host and Lifetime Photography Artist Kevin O’Leary's first international photo exhibit entitled: “Irreconcilable Images” with all proceeds from sales benefiting the Perry J. Cohen Foundation.
Art Wynwood will be held in the spacious CONTEXT Art Miami Pavilion, which together with Art Miami, attracted over 72,500 attendees during the December 2015 Fairs and is located in Midtown Miami’s Wynwood Arts District, adjacent to the Miami Design District. Art Wynwood’s location offers direct access to Route 195 East (The Julia Tuttle Causeway) and is only five miles from the 28th edition of Yachts Miami Beach (formerly the Miami International Yacht & Brokerage Show), which transforms Miami Beach’s legendary Collins Avenue into a multi-million dollar promenade of yachts and draws an upscale audience from around the globe.
