The show that wants to change the world

Arts for a Better World is a bold and audacious endeavor to unite a large-scale commercial exhibition with the non-profit community, to convey a compelling message about the role of art in crafting a better world for future generations.

Arts for a Better World is about discovery—not only of emerging and internationally established artists, many of whom are showing in Miami for the first time—but of the efforts by non-profit groups worldwide to provide everyone with real tools to make their mark toward creating a better world.

Arts for a Better World opens its doors to people from all walks of life—people who share a belief that art plays an integral role in shaping a stronger society, both socially and spiritually. And we don't have to deplete our savings account to enjoy the pleasure of owning valuable works of art!

Our guests will encounter an exhibition designed to create a stimulating experience.

Comprised primarily of contemporary photography, painting, sculpture and installations, Arts for a Better World presents each body of work along with a statement placing the artist in the context of the show's mission. Professionally installed and designed to enhance the discovery of the artwork at the visitor's own pace, the layout of the show will enhance our guests' interaction with a wide variety of works, from emotionally-charged photographs to abstract paintings to striking images of animals, and everything in between.

The comfortable setting includes:

  • Lounges dotted throughout the hall, offering places to reflect and rest
  • The Better World Café offers delectable organic delights and beverages
  • A separate area with special exhibitions hosted by our major charitable organizations
  • Large-scale sculptures
