Miami: Where Condos and Art Collide

Miami: Where Condos and Art Collide

Oct 10, 2018 October 10, 2018

Love coming home to world-class art? Then ditch the art gallery and buy a condo instead! No, we’re not talking about the cheap, poster copy of Monet’s Water Lilies or Warhol’s Monroe kind of art. It’s the serious, custom-made, Art Basel kind of art. The kind of art that makes it to most people’s wishlist. These high-end condos have already welcomed such art into their backyard (a.k.a. garden, lobby, social room).

Muse

17100 Collins Avenue, Sunny Isles Beach

New buyers got to consult internationally acclaimed Helidon Xhixha on original works for each of their residences. The Albanian born artist is best known for crafting three-dimensional sculptures that reflect natural light. In addition, Muse will also feature an art gallery in its breakfast room.


Residences by Armani Casa

18975 Collins Avenue, Sunny Isles Beach

As if being an Armani wasn’t enough, the ultra-luxury project is set to feature sculptures by Neo-expressionist Sandro Chia and abstract artist Sinisa Kukec. Works by Uruguayan visual artist Marcelo Legrand (of Venice Biennale fame) will also be on display.


Park Grove Condo Complex

2701 South Bayshore Drive, Coconut Grove

Three, color-changing resin sculptures, sitting atop 35-foot poles, are the focal point of the two-acre park in this three-tower complex. The work titled ‘The Poets in Bordeaux’ is crafted by Spanish artist Jaume Plensa, who has also exhibited at the Richard Gray Gallery. Additionally, Park Grove residents will get to store their own art in the complimentary climate-controlled storage facility and have access to an “art club” curated by a full-time art specialist.

Contemporary painter, Fabian Burgos’s 40,000 square-foot mural comes splashed across the exterior.

Also, the artful lobby features “The Man of Light” by Spanish sculptor Bernardi Roig.
