pg 50 art spaces redefining floridas visual art experience

Many institutions in Florida are growing to meet new demand, and we have chosen to showcase three that indicate a hunger for fine art is starting to be satiated. Norton Museum of Art, Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) Miami, and Bass Museum of Art are different venues with different missions. What they all have in common is a sense of the importance of outreach, bringing art to a greater community than ever before. They also have dynamic new plans for architecture that sizzles and creates a sense of excitement about art that cities need. The so-called “Bilbao effect,” where the architecture itself becomes the art, with the city as gallery­—takes the audience to a new level of thinking about art’s place.

When you mix this fine art with the some great fashion, you have a place of wonder. Couples that come together in their fashion is a marvelous way to enjoy the dynamic styles of art here. We like to see couples visit these places in a matching style of clothing that also compliments the art work.
