What makes them haute:
In 1964 in New York Don Rubell and his wife Mera began amassing their personal art collection. The idea to share that collection with the world led these pioneers of the art scene to Miami in the early 90’s, and they opened the Rubell Family Collection in its current 45,000-square-foot warehouse in Wynwood. Don and Mera’s children, Jennifer and Jason, have honored the family’s legacy while leading Miami’s art scene and operating the non-profit Contemporary Arts Foundation. The Rubell Family Collection features 27 galleries, a research library, a film and lecture theater, a new media room, a bookstore, a gift shop, and sculpture garden. The family was also involved in a collaborative effort with famed French fashion brand, Lanvin, which included an installation in their space. We look forward to what these pioneers will deliver next.
