Scope Miami 2006

From Dec 6th through Dec 10th, 2006Scope Miami returns for the fifth straight year with its new 40,000-square-foot, artist-designed pavilion located in Roberto Clemente Park in Wynwood Art District. The fair’s new pavilion comprising shipping containers, tents, and art projects was conceived, designed, and constructed by Scope founder and president Alexis Hubshman, architect Charles Mallea, and expert tentmaker and owner of Event Star, Alain Perez. On top of taking the art fair’s standards to new levels, Scope Miami incorporates a wide selection of programs that compliment the event’s concept. Among the collateral activities happening around it, there will be the Scope Shuttle which provides service from the TownHouse Hotel and Art Basel Miami Beach to Scope Miami and the Flamingo Sculpture Garden every half hour making it easier to fairgoers to enjoy the programming. In addition to its ninety exhibitors from fourteen countries, Scope Miami 2006 presents more than twenty-five special projects including performances, screenings and the Scope-Sound, an original sound installation by Derek Cotè sponsored by Land Rover. Another highlight of the fair this year will be the Scope Collection and Silent Auction in the lobby of the TownHouse Hotel. Artwork donated by exhibitors, invited curators, and artists affords new and established collectors a chance to build their collections. Proceeds from the Silent Auction help to support the Scope Foundation. Also the Flamingo Sculpture Garden created in conjunction with the Flamingo South Beach, will be devoted to showing large-scale sculpture that explores humanitarian, political, and environmental issues. The garden will be installed in the courtyard of the Flamingo South Beach. For more information, please visit www.scope-art.com
