Miami's Burgeoning Downtown Art Scene

Mera Rubell, one of America's premier art collectors, explains to Richard Florida why she loves collecting her art in Miami, and which is the best American City for artists.

Rubell was one of the principal collectors and exhibitors responsible for inculcating the emergent art scene in the Wynwood district near downtown Miami. She admires the neighborhood for its role as "the closest you can get to the edge in city."

However, the best city for artists remains Los Angeles, "where studio space is cheap, teaching jobs for artists are plenty, and the cultural and visual landscape is endlessly fascinating."
