MIAMI ART WEEK 2021

December 2nd 2021

This year 2021 the traditional art exhibitions in Miami will continue taking place in a lower scale despite the pandemic.

Last year all the big art shows and fairs were cancelled simply because of the volume of attendance that could become a risk of spread during the pandemic.

 

Most established smaller establishments like galleries, art centers and museums will continue to support the arts along with the City and Miami-Dade county cultural affairs department. 

The Miami Art week is scheduled to take place from December 2nd to the 12th 2021. The main art district in Miami named Wynwood, will hold several cultural events following all CDC and City recommendations to avoid the virus spread. Check art events in Wynwood during Miami Art Week 2021

EYE TO I: SELF PORTRAITS FROM THE NATIONAL PORTRAIT GALLERY

MAR. 24-SEP. 20, 2020

BOCA RATON MUSEUM OF ART

Eye to I is especially appropriate in the age of the “selfie.” Organized and drawn from the collection of the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery, this exhibition explores how American artists have portrayed themselves through painting, drawing, photography, and video since the beginning of the 20th century. Artists in the exhibition approach self-representation from realist renderings to alter-egos that can reveal or obfuscate their inner lives.

Address: 501 Plaza real, Boca Raton Florida 33432

February 13th to 17th 2020
