Had no idea that this art museum existed until we started poking around the neighborhood. Found it to be a wonderful exhibit of primarily modern works by a number of Latino painters--most notably a Tamayo.

The building itself is an impressive space, well suited to the scale of several oversize installations. Museum entrance hidden - essentially unmarked - in a courtyard on the left side of the building - the idea is that one rings the bell as though one were visiting a private residence. As with all contemporary art (my opinion) some of it is self-indulgent - the artist and thier reviewers believing their own press. Some of it derivative - and some of it is thought provoking. Most of it is interesting. At least, and at best, contemporary art does not shy away from a social point of view. I ended up with what amounted to a private tour / walking commentary from one of the employees - whether he took an interest in my interest or functioned as a sort of security was never quite clear. But he stayed with me througout, and had a good knowledge of the particular artists, items, installations - and art itself; we spend time discussing various collections we'd both visited - and ranged from Monet to Turner. It did add to the experience. Fascinating that this was all collected and funded by one gentleman and his wife, still collecting and - one assumes - still fabulously wealthy. Most remarkable of all - it's free! (Applause to the de la Cruz family; what a nice give back)

My wife and I came to Miami to watch a baseball game. I wanted to take her to see some of Miami’s art and culture and we stumbled upon this amazing museum. We spent at least two hours reading about the artists being showcased and viewing some of their pieces of work, What else do you expect to do and a museum right? Multiple times a staff member would come by and ask if we had questions. A few staff members even took time to explain some of the art and the history behind the pieces from the artists perspective. As we were leaving, coming down the elevator from the third floor, we actually got to meet the owners Rosa and Carlos de la Cruz and chat with them for a few minutes! What a great museum. A must see!

The De La Cruz Collection is difficult to find as there are no signs of the gallery on the street. It is located next door to the Institute of Contemporary Art, in the Design District. The entrance is in an alcove to the west. Admission is free. The collection transcends many forms of contemporary art with a relevance to the current day. The exhibits include works by both world famous and lesser known, but expressive artists. We enjoyed our visit and would recommend the De La Cruz Contemporary Art Collection to other art aficionados.

I have to admit that I didn't quite know what to expect, but was blown away by this collection. The de la Cruz Collection occupies three floors of galleries in the Miami Design District in a spatious well-lit building designed by the architect John Marquette. The collection is owned by the Cuban-born American businessman Carlos de la Cruz and his wife Rosa and includes a wide range of contemporary works including, as you would expect, work by Cuban artists including Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Jorge Pardo, Wilfredo Lam and Ana Mendieta, but also surprisingly by the Scottish artists Peter Doig and Lucy McKenzie, plus many others from around the world. Well worth visiting - plus have a look at the artistic parking structure across the road. In 2016, ArtNews listed Rosa and Carlos de la Cruz in their worldwide survey of the "Top 200 Collectors".
