Do you keep up on Miami Beach’s art scene at all? If so, you may be aware of The Bass Museum of Art’s closing back in 2015. This weekend, the popular art museum is returning in a major way, boasting a tweaked name and a massive revamp just in time for December’s perennially popular Art Basel.
For starters, the museum’s name is now simply The Bass. As for the revamp, it fuses classic art with a significantly stronger focus on contemporary work. To give you a better idea, Botticelli’s masterpiece “The Coronation of the Virgin” from 1492 now shares expanded gallery space with artwork by modern artists like Pascale Marthine Tayou, whose exhibit “Beautiful” will debut when The Bass opens on Sunday.
The Bass revamp has added over 3,500 square feet of gallery space, a huge new lobby, and a cafe. The classic keystone columns remain while other features like the keystone ramp have been replaced with large hallways leading into a sun-kissed courtyard, classrooms, and more.
If you’re interested in visiting The Bass, admission will be free on Sunday, October 29 before increasing to $5-$10 thereafter. Its address is 2100 Collins Avenue.
