Important news for even the most amateur of arts aficionados: the Institute Of Contemporary Art Miami will be opening the doors on its permanent home in the Design District on Dec. 1, granting our populace the daringly democratic access to post-war pieces this quirky culture hub has become synonymous with. With inaugural program The Everywhere Studio featuring an array of works by timeless titans of their mediums (including, but certainly not limited to Picasso, Warhol, Kippenberger and Oppermann), as well as a number of up-and-coming Miami-based auteurs such as painter Tomm El-Saieh, this museum has already proven its programming just as welcoming as its peerless choice of location. “The new ICA Miami will be an accessible museum,” says Director Ellen Salpeter, “It’s both centrally located and seamlessly integrated within the Miami Design District’s urban streetscape at the intersection of multiple neighborhoods. This means we will attract both contemporary art enthusiasts, nearby residents and casual patrons stopping in for a visit. Most importantly, our programs and admission will always be FREE and open to all.”;
