In celebration of its 5th Anniversary Season, the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County has partnered with New York’s Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts to present the Lincoln Center List Collection to the greater Miami community. 

This exhibition creates an artistic bridge between the sister organizations – uniting the Magic City and the Big Apple with a wonderful visual art installation. While the List 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.

Established in 1962 through the generous endowment by Albert and Vera List, the Lincoln Center List Collection encompasses work from leading artists in the contemporary art world.  The List Collection in Miami includes 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 Robert Longo.  The list of groundbreaking senior artists and next generation rising stars also includes Richard Artschwager, William Bailey, Jennifer Bartlett, Vija Celmins, Robert Cottingham, Howard Hodgkin, Wolf Kahn, Elizabeth Murray, Jules Olitski, Joseph Rafael, Joel Shapiro, and Terry Winters.

The Lincoln Center List Art Collection graces the halls, lobbies, and public spaces of both the John S. and James L. Knight Concert Hall and the Sanford and Dolores Ziff Ballet Opera House for the remainder of the 2010-2011 Season.  The Adrienne Arsht Center will offer FREE, guided tours, surveying the entire collection, every Saturday at 12 noon, beginning on November 20.
