Rubell Family Collection: Masterpieces in Miami


Sharing. You were taught how to share when you were young, but you have only managed to gain a larger appreciation of the concept as you’ve grown older. Part of that is due to places like the Rubell Family Collection, where longtime collectors and philanthropists Donald and Mera Rubell share their art collection with the public. And this is no ordinary art collection–the Rubell collection puts most museums to shame, with some of the greatest works of the 20th and 21st centuries collected by the couple during numerous scouting trips around the world. It’s simply too good to miss, so gather your most artistic friends and come by for the ultimate Miami art experience. Only a fraction of the collection is on display at any given time, and pieces are rotated regularly, so it’s never the same place twice. Come one day and you might see the world-changing pop art of Andy Warhol and the cinematic conceptual portraits of photographer Cindy Sherman. Visit again a few weeks later and you could gaze at a retrospective of China’s most talented young and emerging artists. And here’s a bit of trivia you can share with your friends: The building the collection is housed in used to contain drugs and firearms from DEA busts in Miami during the ’80s. Just be sure to get your Miami Vice jokes out of the way early so you have time to enjoy the real pleasures of this amazing place.
