Create Your Own Legacy

The City of Miami Beach Art in Public Places ("AiPP") program will acquire an artwork from OVR: Miami Beach, Art Basel's December edition of Online Viewing Rooms, to accession into the City’s public art collection—and we need your help! The Legacy Purchase Program is funded through the City’s AiPP fund, which is dedicated to the purchase of public art.

The selected artwork(s) will join the City's permanent public art collection, and will be displayed within a dedicated, publicly accessible area of the Miami Beach Convention Center ("MBCC"). Maintenance and conservation of the work and will fall within the Art in Public Places Fund 147 and the AiPP guidelines.

This year, the AiPP Committee has elected to purchase work from a Miami-Dade County based gallery, an artist who lives and/or works in Miami-Dade County, and/or by an artist who has a significant connection to the Miami-Dade community.

After much deliberation, the City’s AiPP Committee has narrowed down the submissions to three (3) works of art, and now asks the public to select their favorite artwork. Scroll down to view the art work up for consideration, read about the artists, and cast your vote.

Voting will be open from approximately 10 a.m. on Friday, December 4 to 8 p.m. on Saturday, December 5 EST. The work of art with the most votes will be announced on Sunday, December 6 and will be acquired by the City on the same day.
