City-Owned Cultural Facilties

Bass Museum of Art

Organizational Background

The Bass is Miami Beach's contemporary art museum. Focusing on exhibitions of international contemporary art, The Bass presents mid-career and established artists reflecting the spirit and international character of Miami Beach. The Bass seeks to incorporate various disciplines of contemporary culture, such as design, fashion and architecture, into its exhibition program. The Bass’s programming encompasses a wide range of media and artistic points of view that expands the diverse cultural landscape of Miami Beach’s art scene.

The Bass maintains an education program for lifelong learning and visitors of all ages. The Bass IDEAS education initiative uses art as a catalyst for creativity and positive growth, especially in the area of early childhood education. The active school program led by the City of Miami Beach called STEAM+, takes The Bass IDEAS off-site by engaging children in Miami-Dade County Public Schools and integrating arts education into the curriculum.
