The BASS is Miami Beach’s contemporary art museum, and in addition to enriching the cultural landscape of Miami with long term and permanent exhibitions in its newly renovated galleries, the venue is an extraordinary space for private social and corporate events. With dozens of events on the schedule, it’s impossible to recap all of them, but here are a few that made a buzz.
THE BASS BALL
One of the most anticipated events of the year, The BASS Ball attracts Miami’s most prominent philanthropists, artists and celebrities for an exceptional event that raises funds to support The Bass’s exhibitions and education programs.
SAYING "I DO" AT THE BASS
A BEAUTIFUL OUTDOOR CEREMONY IN COLLINS PARK
It was a perfect December evening for this beautiful wedding ceremony under the stars, with the Bass’s iconic facade as a backdrop and Collins Park stretched out behind the Chuppa. Typically, couples opt for the ceremony in the Trudy & Paul Cejas gallery, but this balmy South Florida winter evening was perfect for an outdoor event. This wedding was planned by Solea Events, with floral decor provided by Petal Productions and photos by PS Photo & Film. Click here to see more from this event.
