Miami's extraordinary revitalized showcase for contemporary art.. In Short Located in an out-of-the-artsy-way neighborhood, the museum is struggling to make itself known to residents. Opened in 1996, the strikingly modern building was designed by renowned New York architect Gwathmey Siegel. World-class exhibits highlight the best of the pop-art world. A permanent collection of more than 350 works includes works by artists such as John Baldessari, Julian Schnabel, Uta Barth, Jorge Pardo and Jose Bedia. The museum also hosts frequent traveling exhibits of paintings, sculpture, multi-media and photography, as well as major installations. Recent exhibits have included the dadaist and surrealist art collection of Melvin and Rosalind Jacobs, which included works by Marcel Duchamp and Man Ray, and the paintings of British artist Matthew Ritchie.
