The Miami River Art Fair is proud to announce its new alliance with the Art Monaco Art Fair. The biggest international hits from Art Monaco will be on-view at the first edition of the Miami River Art Fair.
The Miami River Art Fair is an international contemporary art fair that will pioneer in the Downtown Miami-Brickell area. The Miami River Art Fair will take place December 4 Ė 9, 2012 at the Miami Convention Center and will run alongside Art Basel as one of its satellite art fairs. Art Basel week is a one-of-kind time where our city experiences a soaring influx of international art professionals, collectors, curators and enthusiasts that visit Art Basel, the largest contemporary art fair in the world.
There are numerous satellite fairs during Art Basel each offering something unique. The Miami River Art Fair is the first and only one located in the Downtown Miami-Brickell area, the heart of Miamiís financial district. As the only art fair in this untapped area, we will have direct access to our local target market that consists of the affluent, well-traveled inhabitants of the Brickell-Downtown area. In addition, this prime location offers visitors a unique urban atmosphere and convenient proximity to world-class entertainment and dining in Downtown Miami and Brickell.
As the only waterfront art fair during Art Basel week, a luxury amenity that will attract collectors and VIP patrons to the Miami River Art Fair, will be its unique access to a yacht docking area at the foot of the Riverfront Sculpture Mall of the art fair. This 800 linear feet public sculpture park on the edge of the historic Miami River will be footsteps away from the main fair and showcase monumental sculptures and installations from international artists.
The Miami River Art Fair has the decade-long revitalization efforts of the Miami River at its core. To do our part in the revitalization of this area, our mission is to redirect the tourism boom during Art Basel to this up-and-coming area. The Miami River Art Fair will be the first landmark fine art event in the area, and its magnitude and scope will lay the groundwork for this area to be one of Miamiís newest fine art destinations.
