Opened in downtown’s still unfinished “Museum Park” in December 2013, the new iteration of our publicly-owned Miami Art Museum (its name unfortunately hijacked by real estate developer Jorge Pérez), is an admittedly impressive bit of business indeed, which in addition to displaying collected artists such as Louise Nevelson, Wifredo Lam, Marcel Duchamp, and Roy Lichtenstein also stages exhibitions like that of Chinese dissident artist Ai Weiwei in 2014, and Canadian installation artist Geoffrey Farmer through February 2015. This being Miami, there’s a particular emphasis on the Latin American and the Caribbean. There’s also a nice restaurant called Verde, and a very browse-able shop.
