The Rubell Family Collection is moving its world-renown collection of contemporary art from Wynwood to Allapattah, where it will open a 100,000 square-foot facility. The new location – at which 80 percent will be publicly accessible – will be renamed the Rubell Museum to emphasize its public mission and welcome audiences to see its contemporary art.

Don and Mera Rubell, today with their son Jason Rubell, have since 1965 amassed one of the world’s most significant and far-ranging collections. Their museum -- encompassing 7,200 works by more than 1,000 artists – helped pioneer the model for sharing private collections have contributed to Wynwood’s place in leading the art world.

Since the beginning, the Rubells have focused on finding artists early in their careers and those who have been overlooked. They were among the first to acquire work by renowned contemporary artists, supporting some at a critical moment in their careers, including Jean-Michel Basquiat, Cecily Brown , Keith Haring, Rashid Johnson, Hayv Kahraman, Jeff Koons, William Kentridge, Yoshitomo Nara, Cindy Sherman, and Mickalene Thomas. They’ve also incorporated public programs, including a partnership with the Miami-Dade County Public Schools, which engages thousands of students every year. The museum also hosts curatorial training internships and artist residencies.

The space will be transformed by Selldorf Architects.
