Science and Art collide with a unique ticketing program that allows curious minds to explore both the cosmos and contemporary exhibitions in Miami’s Arts and Entertainment District
The stars have aligned between two of today’s most preeminent pioneers in the realms of science and the fine art industry, resulting in a unique cultural collaboration that will provide an exceptional level of access for contemporary trend hunters during this year’s Miami Art Week.
Redwood Media Group, the nation’s leader in exhibition production, media and marketing for the global fine art community, announces an exclusive Cultural Partnership between its premier South Florida shows Spectrum Miami and Red Dot Miami, and one of the country’s leading science museums, the Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science, based in Downtown Miami’s Museum Park. This strategic alliance marks the first affiliation by Frost Science with a major art show since opening in May this year, and will position Redwood Media Group as an official donor, contributing toward the museum’s mission to create lifelong science and technology learning. The unique partnership will enable those who purchase a Total Experience Ticket at Frost Science during Miami Art Week (Dec. 6-10) to gain free admission to Red Dot Miami, Spectrum Miami and its show within a show “ArtSpot Miami” a contemporary exhibition by international and Latin American artists, celebrating its fifth anniversary in December. Guests of Frost Science simply have to show their ticket at the entrance of Spectrum Miami and Red Dot Miami any time over the five-day period for free admission. Frost Science members will also receive free admission by showing their membership ID card.
Taking place December 6-10 during Miami Art Week, Spectrum Miami and Red Dot Miami are established as sister art shows, occupying a purpose-built exhibition space on NE 2nd Avenue in Miami’s Arts and Entertainment District for the past two years. Over the last decade, both shows have grown to become the ultimate destination for the fine art industry professional and contemporary art enthusiast who collectively seek a more accessible experience with exhibits showcasing the world’s most progressive portfolios by some of today’s elite artists, galleries and emerging talents. The shows attract more than 38,000 attendees each year and represent more than 650 artists and galleries worldwide.
“We are thrilled to announce our exclusive Cultural Partnership with the Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science”, said Eric Smith, CEO of Redwood Media Group. We value the realm of science as an art form and see its role within the scope of visual arts as increasingly significant and vital in today’s world. Our shows represent art as an evolving genre that often takes a scientific approach. We are delighted to offer free admission to the patrons and guests of Frost Science during Miami Art Week and look forward to developing more exciting initiatives with the region’s most coveted museum.
“We’re pleased to form this unique strategic alliance with two well-established art fairs during Miami Art Week”, said Frank Steslow, President of Frost Science. “Science and art are entwined within the same cultural thread and we look forward to providing our patrons and guests with access to these truly outstanding shows.”
Red Dot Miami, a curated gallery-only contemporary art show, now in its 11th year, presents [IMPACT] as the curatorial theme for 2017. Art not only reflects society but also influences it. From individual creative explorations to large-scale exhibitions seen by millions, the [IMPACT] art has on all is immeasurable. This theme forms a common thread throughout the special exhibits and programming that showcases exhibitors, art industry professionals, and select nonprofits and institutions. Red Dot Miami features galleries representing over 500 leading contemporary artists from primary and secondary markets throughout the world. The five-day show attracts more than 30,000 visitors and high-net-worth collectors who interact with the specially curated programming, which includes the Spotlight Gallery Program, a focused look at several cutting-edge galleries chosen by the Redwood Media Group selection committee; Art Labs, a series of outstanding projects by leading galleries, art institutions, and art collectives within the show; and Art Talks, an inside look at the artistic experience by way of panel discussions, conversations, and provocative artistic discourse with leading artists, curators, designers, and art industry professionals.
Spectrum Miami, a curated, contemporary art show, now in its seventh year, presents special programs and site-specific exhibitions that showcase the thriving art landscape of the city, informed by the 2017 curatorial theme [FUSION]: the merging of artistic mediums, of exhibitors and collectors, and of the countless galleries and artists who come together to showcase their work. Spectrum Miami is where contemporary meets extraordinary, featuring the works of more than 160 exhibiting artists and galleries from the Florida region and around the globe. Known for its urban and upscale works of art, Spectrum Miami includes Art Labs and Art Talks as well as the Spotlight Artists Program, providing collectors with a focused look at several prominent artists who will each be creating a site-specific exhibition, and the LaunchPad Artist Program, showcasing an emerging and unrepresented artist who is selected to create an exhibition at the show, resulting from a collaboration among local art institutions, galleries, and Spectrum Miami. Spectrum Miami will also include [FOTO SOLO], a stand-alone exhibit, introduced at Artexpo New York in 2016, that features up to 10 artists from various continents who have been chosen for their exemplary photographic art.
ArtSpot Miami will be celebrating its fifth anniversary within Spectrum Miami in 2017. ArtSpot Miami is a specially curated show by Aldo Castillo, an international art dealer and curator. A forward-thinking art show exhibiton specializing in modern and contemporary art with an emphasis on international and Latin American artists, ArtSpot offers innovative and alternative art to affluent collectors, worldwide art institutions, designers, architects, and art enthusiasts.
