The second edition of the Miami River Art Fair, an international, contemporary art fair, will take place at the Downtown Miami Convention Center inside the James L. Knight International Center. This art fair was conceived as a showcase of world-class artists and galleries in an indoor booth setting at the Riverfront Hall. This grand show space overlooks the one-of-a-kind outdoor Riverwalk Sculpture Mall that will feature monumental sculpture on the banks of the historic Miami River.

The Miami River Art Fair is an art fair that has the revitalization efforts of the Lower Miami River at its core. This landmark event will bring the boom of tourism during Miami’s peak winter art fair season to the Downtown Miami-Brickel areas. In addition, the Miami River Art Fair will prominently feature the Miami River as the focus of all of its programming and events.In partnership with the City of Miami and the Miami River Commission, the Miami River Art Fair will act as a launchpad for the revitalization efforts underway for the Downtown Miami/ Brickell areas and the Lower Miami River.

An important step to becoming a world renowned art city is the proliferation of art communities throughout Miami, each uniquely affected by their location. The Miami River Art Fair paves the way for the arts in our financial district as the pioneer art fair of the Downtown Miami – Brickell areas during the winter art fair season.The City of Miami welcomes the Miami River Art Fair as a herald for the revitalization of the Lower Miami River district, the city’s waterfront destination of the twenty-first century. As the fastest growing sector of our city, the Downtown Miami-Brickell area greets you with the warm embrace of luxury style and breathtaking views; a waterfront experience of culture, fine dining and world-class entertainment.
