The Bass Museum Public Art
Miami’s art scene is exponentially evolving as The Bass, Miami Beach will proudly present two new solo exhibitions this fall. Museumgoers are invited to experience quality art and delve into the artists’ vision. Jamilah Sabur’s The Harvesters is a mixed-media exhibition representing the balance between work and play. Inspired by renowned artist Pieter Bruegel’s artwork of the same name, Sabur’s pieces pay homage to history and the human experience of diversity and culture. Another exhibition on view is Adrián Villar Rojas’ The End of Imagination, a mixed-media installation inspired by the past, present and future. Rojas plays with the concept of time, using whimsical sculptural figures to create an immersive environment for spectators. 2100 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, thebass.org
