The Rubell Family Collection in Miami’s Wynwood district has consistently stood out for its approach to art curation. The perspective of collectors Don and Mera Rubell is now on a grander stage: The Rubell Museum, a 100,000-square-foot campus in Allapattah.
Housed in a former industrial building transformed by New York’s Selldorf Architects, the museum will pull from 7,200 works by 1,000 artists. And due to the Rubells’ generosity toward artists in their early years, the collection includes pieces from acclaimed talents like Keith Haring and Jeff Koons. In addition to the gallery, the property seeks to create a more holistic link with the public, supported by performance spaces, an art research library, a museum store and a restaurant.
