People who have saved this event:


The Bass initiates a new program titled New Monuments by adding a fifth plinth to Collins Park and calling for artists to create a temporary new monument.


Who or what should be memorialized on a plinth in Miami Beach, in the United States, or globally? In 2020? For the next five years, this initiative will invite five artists to answer this question with a work of art that will be on view in Collins Park for approximately 10-12 months each. The following open call for artist submissions is for the first year. Subsequent calls will be announced annually. The selection process will be made by the museum’s curatorial team.

The Bass pays for all costs relating to the selected project including production costs, engineering, installation and maintenance. The selected artist will also receive a $5,000 honorarium. If a duo or group is selected, the honorarium will be divided evenly amongst the group.

The call is open to any artist living or working in Miami-Dade County. Applications from Black, Indigenous, and/or People of Color (BIPOC) artists are strongly encouraged. The deadline to apply is September 1, 2020 at 5 PM EDT.
