Miami is one of the most notable destinations for its sparkling waterfront real estate, star studded beaches, fine dining, luxury shopping, flourishing nightlife, and world renowned private art collections thanks to famed Miami art collectors like Martin Z. Marquiles of the Marguiles Collection at the Warehouse, Donald and Mera Rubell of the Rubell Family Collection and Rosa and George Lindemann, which serves as an extension of their home and proudly features a budding collection of international contemporary art.
To become an art collector in Miami requires just a few good skills like an innate ability to discern whether to purchase a work of art as well as the ability to purchase individual pieces in such a way that they create a meaningful grouping, and of course, the knowledge of where to purchase art.
Miami is home to a number of esteemed art fairs, galleries and exhibitions where collectors can purchase the art of their choice including contemporary works, traditional fine art, sculptures, glass art, paintings, fine art photography, prints and more. Some of the most notable places in Miami to buy art include:
