Join ArtTable at the new home of the Rubell Collection Museum for our annual national Art Basel Miami Beach program.
During this event, we will hear directly from Mera Rubell and Juan Roselione-Valadez, Director, Rubell Family Collection, about the vision for the Rubell’s fifty-year passion for the arts, the new museum construction process, and the collection. Following the walkthrough, meet us in the beautifully landscaped garden for a celebratory reception catered by Le Basque catering!
About the Rubell Museum
Originally launched as the Rubell Family Collection, the museum has been renamed the Rubell Museum to emphasize its public mission and welcome audiences to see its contemporary art. “The word ‘museum’ makes the public feel welcome, which is exactly our goal,” stated Mera Rubell. The Rubells pioneered the model for sharing a private collection with the public. The new Rubell Museum expands their commitment to serving as a public resource and extends the public mission they’ve developed to date.
Since opening in Wynwood 26 years ago, the Rubells have added many public programs, including a partnership with the Miami-Dade County Public Schools, which engages thousands of students every year, and collaborations with local universities to offer seminars and critiques. The museum also hosts curatorial training internships and artist residencies with the support of the Knight Foundation. In addition to Mera, Don, and Jason Rubell, the museum leadership includes Juan Roselione-Valadez, who is the director of the museum and has been part of the team for 21 years.
The Rubell Museum represents a new kind of institution that serves as an advocate for a diverse group of contemporary artists and a resource for both the public and the art world. Since the Rubells moved to
Miami, many museums and public collections have opened in the city, and it has developed a vital arts ecology. The Rubells see their new museum as providing a context for art and exhibitions that are available to the public in South Florida and beyond.
