Waterfront Art

With the Miami River Art Fair, Nina Torres brings a resounding voice for art to the heart of Brickell…and plenty of options for how you experience it and get there.

This season will see the birth of the only area art fair where guests can arrive via yacht: The Miami River Art Fair, the first event of its kind in the Brickell area. “All of the art fairs were located in either Wynwood or Miami Beach,” says Founder Nina Torres. “I identified with Brickell so deeply that I wanted to create an event that put this area on the art-world’s map.” The event will be held in the James L. Knight International Center, which Torres chose because its large exhibition space allowed for museum-level showcasing of artists’ work. The event will feature artists, galleries and projects from 28 countries including France, Germany and Monaco. “We want to aid in the revitalization of the Lower Miami River area and its public greenways by creating a landmark cultural event during a time when Miami is at the center of the global art scene,” Torres says.
