After an extended closure, The Bass has reinvented itself as "Miami Beach's contemporary art museum. "Focusing on exhibitions of international contemporary art, The Bass presents mid-career and established artists reflecting the spirit and international character of Miami Beach." 

Nonetheless, The Bass will continue to honor its permanent collection. A new “Open Storage” gallery is dedicated to displays of the museum’s permanent collection, featuring a series of rotating artist projects that present works in dialogue with the collection.  The permanent collection includes European painting and sculpture from the 15th-century to present; 7th- to 20th-century textiles, tapestries and ecclesiastical vestments and artifacts; 20th- and 21st-century North American, Latin American, Asian and Caribbean art; Photographs, prints and drawings. 

Also modern and contemporary architecture and design, with emphasis on the pre and postwar design history of Miami Beach.

The Bass is located in a beautiful 1930s Art Deco building, with a recently redesigned interior and an additional 10,000 square foot expansion.
