Art Miami, in its 25th year, is the city’s original and longest running contemporary and modern art fair. This significant benchmark in the art world will be celebrated when it kicks off Miami Art Week with a VIP Private Preview on Tuesday, December 2nd from 5:30 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., once again benefiting the Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM). Last year, over 11,000 art world luminaries and connoisseurs attended the VIP opening for the first opportunity to view and acquire the most important works of art from the 20th and 21st centuries. For a quarter century, Art Miami has maintained a preeminent position in America’s contemporary art fair market, as well as preserving its well-deserved place as Miami’s premier anchor fair.
