The Bass is the centerpiece of Miami Beach’s "cultural campus." The core of the building is the old Miami Beach public library, originally built in 1930. After an $8m renovation it now boasts vastly expanded facilities. In addition to pieces from the museum’s own permanent collection (including European Old Masters, rococo court paintings, 18th-century English portraits, Flemish tapestries and Chinese woodblock prints), it hosts world-class traveling exhibitions—everything from folk art to photography and video installations. There are also talks, workshops and a decent little gift shop.
