List Art Collection in Miami
The Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County and Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts is home to an ongoing collaborative presentation of Lincoln Center's esteemed List Art Collection showcasing more than 30 art works from award-winning national and international visual artists. The List Art Collection in Miami graces the halls of the Adrienne Arsht Center throughout the Center's two buildings - the John S. and James L. Knight Concert Hall and the Sanford and Dolores Ziff Ballet Opera House.
Opened in the fall of 2010 as the Adrienne Arsht Center embarked on its 5th Anniversary Season and with Lincoln Center just having celebrated its landmark 50th Anniversary, this exhibition creates an artistic bridge between the sister organizations - uniting the Magic City and the Big Apple with a spectacular visual art installation. While the List Art Collection spotlights significant works from the contemporary art world, the campus of the Adrienne Arsht Center represents one of the most stunning architectural performing arts centers built in the last decade. This melding of contemporary visual art and architecture represents an exciting new initiative, as the Center offers patrons the opportunity to expand their experience of world-class performing arts to now include world-class visual art.
The List Art Collection in Miami includes more than 30 works by artists who have defined some of the most important art trends of the 20th century including abstract expressionism, color field painting, minimalism, pop art, and realism. Among the highlights of this seminal group of artists are: Chuck Close, Jim Dine, Helen Frankenthaler, and Howard Hodgkin. The list of groundbreaking senior artists and next generation rising stars also includes Richard Artschwager, William Bailey, Jennifer Bartlett, Vija Celmins, Wolf Kahn, Guillermo Kuitca, Elizabeth Murray, Jules Olitski, Joseph Raffael, Joel Shapiro, and Terry Winters.
The Adrienne Arsht Center offers FREE, guided tours, surveying the entire collection, every Saturday at 12 noon. Reservations are highly encouraged, and can be made by phone at: (786) 468-2326 or via email at: email@example.com.
