From the abundance of Art Deco architecture in the neighbourhood to the annual Art Basel fair, Miami’s creativity knows no bounds. Sourcing international and local artists through referrals and galleries including Art Angels and Valli Art, Mandarin Oriental, Miami’s Art in Residence programme elevates their guest experience by creating an inspiring environment that pays homage to the area’s culture.

Featuring predominantly contemporary art that rotates every few months, the pieces are selected to bring the feeling of the Wynwood and the Design Districts inside while working in harmony with the Asian-influenced interiors of the hotel. Guests are treated to a diverse curation of work:the lobby is shared by Ranier Lagemann’s sculptural hanging divers that illuminate at night, while canvases and wood panel pieces in the MO Bar + Lounge and throughout the hotel by Flavio Galvan, Flore, Bernard Dunaux, Berlingeri and Amadio deliver arresting plays of colour and texture. Craig Alan paints tiny crowds of hundreds of individual figures that form celebrity portraits, encouraging Mandarin Oriental, Miami’s guests to slow down by drawing them in for a closer look.

During Miami Art week, Mandarin Oriental, Miami installs an exhibit in the lobby followed by a closing cocktail reception at the MO Bar + Lounge to celebrate the week. Previous years have seen prestigious partnerships with Harry Winston, Desmond Mason and Diamonds Unleashed by Kara Ross.
