Art Miami 2009, the City’s prestigious, long-running contemporary art fair will celebrate its 20th anniversary December 2-6th, proudly showcasing a wide variety of art from more than 100 leading national and international contemporary art galleries and prominent institutions. In its 19th edition, Art Miami moved to a new location inside the emerging Midtown Miami Arts District, adjacent to the Miami Design District and Wynwood Arts District. The Fair attracted over 32,000 attendees in a six day period and was applauded for the depth and quality of its art, including a selection of special exhibitions and curatorial projects, outdoor sculptures and video installations — all of which appeared within a new 125,000+-square-foot state of the art pavilion. European, Asian, American and Latin American galleries and institutions also contributed unique curated exhibitions in the BlackRock Art Video | New Media Lounge and through additional art projects. BlackRock, the nation’s largest asset manager, was the 2008 Fair’s main sponsor and official host of the VIP lounge. The venue additionally boasted a restaurant offering delectable cuisine and beverages by Touch Catering as well as the VIP Lounge – a second story loft offering a panoramic view of the fair. Ample parking was provided through the use of a new four-story parking garage with 1,000 spots, located directly across the street from the pavilion. Convenient valet parking and shuttle bus service was offered to and from all surrounding satellite fairs and the Miami Beach Convention Center. Through the success of the 2008 Art Miami fair and heightened interest in 2009, Art Miami continues to expand its reputation, attracting an ever-broader collector base and media attention worldwide. It is the “can’t-miss” event for all serious art collectors, art enthusiasts, curators and museum professionals – a fair that offers the opportunity to acquire some of the finest 20th and 21st century art and provides a closer look at some of the most distinct works at the forefront of the international contemporary art movement.
