This President’s Day Weekend, February 15–18, Art Wynwood returns to Miami for its 11th edition, with more than 50 international galleries hailing from all over the world. Featuring works from across the 20th and 21st century, including murals, street art, pop surrealism, and more, the fair is an opportune moment for collectors to explore and discover an exciting and diverse range of art.

Significant to the forthcoming edition is the planned honor of artist and gallerist Peter Tunney with the Art Wynwood Lifetime Artistic Achievement Award, previously bestowed on such art world bastions as Shepard Fairey, Martha Cooper, and Risk. For more than three decades, Tunney has maintained a materially diverse and experimental practice that draws on the extraordinary facets of life. In addition to having a location in the Tribeca neighborhood of New York, he has also helmed a space in the Wynwood Walls area of Miami for eight years.

The award ceremony highlighting Tunney’s career and the myriad ways it has impacted the art industry will accompany a special dinner, with limited tickets available for purchase.

Within Art Wynwood, each gallery will contribute their own unique flair to the overall presentation of the fair, showcasing leading contemporary artists and offering visitors the chance to take a journey through some of the most cutting edge works available today. “Each year, Art Wynwood draws in influential collectors, curators, art consultants, designers, and art enthusiasts from across the globe” said director of Art Wynwood Julian Navarro. “The much-anticipated 2024 edition of Art Wynwood presents an engaging blend of both emerging and well-established contemporary galleries, along with exciting special projects and solo exhibitions.”

Art Wynwood is a dynamic and vibrant extension of the cultural landscape of Miami, evidenced further by the partnership with the Bass Museum. Together, the museum and fair promise to further solidify the city as an international center for contemporary art. The 2024 edition will be a not-to-be-missed art world calendar event, and the perfect opportunity for collectors and art enthusiasts alike to experience all that Miami and the international arts community have to offer.
