Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

The Bass, as it’s now known, remains the centerpiece of the Collins Park’s cultural campus (which includes the adjacent Miami City Ballet). The enhanced and enlarged property, which dates to the 1930s, reopened its doors in October 2017, following a two-year, $12 million renovation that added more exhibition space, four new galleries, a gift shop, café by Thierry Isambert and a new educational facility called the Creativity Center. “Moniker,” a community-focused graphic installation designed to grow over time, is part of this latest interactive component. With the revamp came a series of fresh acquisitions and gifts from New York’s Museum of Modern Art and in significant multimedia works from the Martin & Cricket Taplin Video Collection, among others. In addition to pieces from the contemporary art museum’s own permanent collection (including Sylvie Fleury’s Eternity Now, 2015 site-specific installation and Ugo Rondinone’s Magic Mountain), it hosts world-class traveling exhibitions—everything from folk art to photography and video installations
