Redwood Art Group, the nation’s leader in exhibitions, event production, media, and marketing for the global fine art community, announces its return to Wynwood Arts District with its flagship art fairs, two of the longest running fairs during Miami Art Week.
Spectrum Miami and Red Dot Miami will return to Mana Wynwood Convention Center, offering “Two Fairs Under One Roof” for both exhibitors and art enthusiasts during this year’s Miami Art Week, taking place December 6th to December 10th, 2023, at Mana Wynwood, 2217 NW 5th Ave., and NW 22nd St. in Miami. The five-day fairs will cover more than 150,000 square feet of indoor exhibition space, all within walking distance of Wynwood’s coveted restaurants, bars, and retail boutiques. E-tickets can now be purchased in advance by visiting redwoodartgroup.com/spectrum-miami/ and redwoodartgroup.com/red-dot-miami/.
Spectrum Miami and Red Dot Miami have grown to become the ultimate destination for the fine art industry professional and contemporary art enthusiast, with exhibits showcasing today’s elite artists, galleries, dealers, and emerging talents. With more than 40,000 attendees flocking to see the artwork of the 1,000+ artists showcased by over 280 exhibitors, avid art enthusiasts and industry leaders will also return to enjoy Spectrum Miami’s sister fair [SOLO], highlighting established and independent emerging artists.
Spectrum Miami and Red Dot Miami form the acclaimed contemporary and fine art experience that collectively presents some of today’s most coveted national and international galleries and artists from the U.S. and around the world. Redwood Art Group exclusively produces the two art fairs housed in one location—considered to be the only multi-fair production of its kind during Miami Art Week.
“We’re pleased to return to Mana Wynwood for what we expect to be an exceptionally busy Miami Art Week,” says Eric Smith, president of Redwood Art Group. “Last year, we saw an attendance of more than 40,000 art enthusiasts and industry leaders, and we anticipate this year’s show to exceed that. Exhibitor space at both Spectrum Miami and Red Dot Miami has been in such high demand this year, that we have been sold out since August which is unprecedented. Attendees will enjoy the very best the fine art world and contemporary art industry has to offer, and we’re looking forward to welcoming everyone back to five days of eclectic art and discovery, with a couple of surprises in store.”
