Art Wynwood, the premier winter contemporary art fair produced by Art Miami, will return to Miami for its sixth edition February 16 - 20. The annual Presidents' Day Weekend fair will showcase a dynamic array of works from the underground street movement, emerging young talent, and world-renowned contemporary and modern artists.
This year’s highlights include legendary street artist Shepard Fairey being honored with the Art Wynwood Tony Goldman Lifetime Artistic Achievement Award, and a specially curated Cuban art exhibition that will feature works by both iconic 20th century masters and 21st century artists.
The five-day fair, sponsored by Christie’s International Real Estate, will begin on Thursday, February 16, with a much-anticipated VIP Preview to benefit the Miami City Ballet at The Art Wynwood Pavilion (3101 NE 1st Avenue), before opening to the public on February 17 and continuing through Monday, February 20. This major contemporary art fair offers serious collectors as well as seasoned and budding art enthusiasts the best opportunity to discover and obtain some of the most important works of the era.
Last year, the prestigious art fair attracted more than 36,500 prominent collectors, curators, art advisors, interior designers, and art aficionados from all over the world. This year, the fair will offer diverse artworks from over 50 galleries representing more than a dozen countries, including Germany, Spain, Russia, Canada, France, the United Kingdom, Argentina, Colombia and the United States.
"At Art Wynwood, collectors and guests get the best of both worlds, having the opportunity to acquire works from emerging artists, as well as the most important modern and contemporary artists," said Art Wynwood Director Grela Orihuela. "Our fair has become part of the fabric of the Miami art scene, consistently attracting an international audience."
