About the Bass Museum of Art
Located in Miami Beach, the Bass Museum of Art offers a dynamic year-round calendar of contemporary exhibitions. Artists’ projects, educational programs, lectures, concerts and free family days complement the works on view. The museum opened the Lindemann Family Creativity Center in January 2012. The center is the home of the museum’s IDEA@thebass program of art classes and workshops. Additionally, as part of the education department the museum showcases select works from the permanent collection in the ‘Art History Lab’.
The museum was founded in 1963 when the City of Miami Beach accepted a collection of Renaissance and Baroque works of art from collectors John and Johanna Bass, and renamed the collection that was housed in the Miami Beach Library designed in 1930 by Russell Pancoast to the Bass Museum of Art. Architect Arata Isozaki designed an addition to the museum between 1998 and 2002 that doubled its size from 15,000 to 35,000 square feet.
In June, 2015 the museum will begin an internal expansion working with design team: Arata Isozaki Design Consultant and David Gauld Architect on an improved and functional design that will provide 47 percent more programmable space within the museum’s same building footprint. This will enhance the museum’s commitment to its exhibition and education programming in a responsible and sustainable manner. For more information, please visit www.BassMuseum.org.
