The NY Times: Miami’s Rise as an Art Hub Draws Artists and Offers Inspiration

Antonia Wright Ruben Millares Making Miami

Dec. 5, 2023

The respect for art in South Florida has made it a “cozy” place for people to come — and stay for work and to build a following.

Antonia Wright, 43, who lived in Montana, New York, Latin America and Europe before coming home to Miami, has just finished building a sculpture for a show called “Making Miami” in the Miami Design District. The exhibit covers the years of art in Miami from 1996 to 2012, showing a little of Miami before Art Basel and up to the 10th anniversary of the fair.
