We are pleased to announce the December opening of Rubell Museum (formerly Rubell Family Collection) in Miami, Florida.
In 1993, the Rubell Family Collection/Contemporary Art Foundation opened in the Wynwood neighborhood of Miami, which pioneered a new model for sharing private collections with the public and spurred the development of the neighborhood as one of the leading art and design districts in the U.S. Now, with 7,200 works by more than 1,000 artists, Rubell has found a new home that can accommodate its growing collection.
The Selldorf Architects-designed museum will serve as a public resource with a new 100,000 square-foot facility of which 80% will be publicly accessible. Housed in a former industrial building, the design transforms the space and features 53,000-square-feet of galleries, with 65% dedicated to long-term installations and 35% to special exhibitions, all drawn from the collection.
The museum will also include a restaurant overlooking the courtyard, an art research library, flexible spaces for performances and special events, and a museum store.
