The Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County and Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts proudly announce a collaborative presentation of Lincoln Center’s esteemed List Art Collection showcasing more than 30 art works from award-winning national and international visual artists. The List Art Collection in Miami will grace the halls of the Adrienne Arsht Center for the duration of the 2010-2011 season, and will be on display throughout the Center’s two buildings – the John S. and James L. Knight Concert Hall and the Sanford and Dolores Ziff Ballet Opera House – open to the public for viewing beginning on November 20, 2010.
As the Adrienne Arsht Center embarks on its 5th Anniversary Season and with Lincoln Center just having celebrated its landmark 50th Anniversary, this exhibition creates an artistic bridge between the sister organizations – uniting the Magic City and the Big Apple with a spectacular visual art installation. While the List Art Collection spotlights significant works from the contemporary art world, the campus of the Adrienne Arsht Center represents one of the most stunning architectural performing arts centers built in the last decade. This melding of contemporary visual art and architecture represents an exciting new initiative, as the Center offers patrons the opportunity to expand their experience of world-class performing arts to now include world-class visual art.

“At this significant moment in the Adrienne Arsht Center’s history as a cultural epicenter, it is a great honor and thrill to partner with the premier performing arts institution in the United States – the world-renowned Lincoln Center,” said M. John Richard, president and CEO of the Adrienne Arsht Center. “As we dive into our 5th Anniversary celebration, this season-long exhibition underlines our mission to serve as a town square for world-class artistic programming and meaningful community building, welcoming each patron and passerby to experience first-hand the transformative power of the arts.”
Visual art has been an integral part of the Lincoln Center cultural complex since its groundbreaking. At that time, a major contribution by Albert and Vera List underwrote both the initial purchase of artwork for the campus and a commissioning program that continues today – commissioning limited edition prints by some of the most talented and widely respected artists of our era. The List Art Collection at Lincoln Center not only promotes and supports the performing arts, but also makes contemporary art available to the public for inspiration and for purchase. In the same way, a selection of limited editions of the List Art Collection in Miami will be available for the Adrienne Arsht Center’s patrons to purchase, with proceeds benefitting both of the Center’s programs.
The List Art Collection in Miami will include more than 30 works by artists who have defined some of the most important art trends of the 20th century including abstract expressionism, color field painting, minimalism, pop art, and realism. Among the highlights of this seminal group of artists are: Chuck Close, Jim Dine, Helen Frankenthaler, and Howard Hodgkin. The list of groundbreaking senior artists and next generation rising stars also includes Richard Artschwager, William Bailey, Jennifer Bartlett, Vija Celmins, Wolf Kahn, Guillermo Kuitca, Elizabeth Murray, Jules Olitski, Joseph Raffael, Joel Shapiro, and Terry Winters.
The List Art Collection in Miami is organized by the Center for Visual Communication, Miami, Florida in collaboration with the Adrienne Arsht Center and Lincoln Center. For more information on the Center for Visual Communication please visit www.Visual.org.
