|A RESOLUTION OF THE MAYOR AND CITY COMMISSION OF THE CITY OF MIAMI BEACH, FLORIDA, WAIVING, PURSUANT TO ORDINANCE NO. 2018-4176, FEES ASSOCIATED WITH HISTORIC PRESERVATION BOARD REVIEW OF THE INSTALLATION ENTITLED ETERNITY NOW, BY ARTIST SYLVIE FLEURY, AT 2100 COLLINS AVENUE, PROPOSED BY THE FRIENDS OF THE BASS MUSEUM, INC., A FLORIDA NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION.
|Accept the waiver of, pursuant to Ordinance No. 2018-4176, fees associated with the Historic Preservation Board’s review of the installation Eternity Now by artist Sylvie Fleury at The Bass Museum.
The Bass Museum is a Miami Beach contemporary art museum that creates connections between international contemporary art and diverse audiences, and shares the power of contemporary art through experiences that excite, challenge and educate. The Bass Museum was established as a public/private partnership, through a 1963 contractual agreement entered between the City of Miami Beach and John and Johanna Bass, whereby the City accepted the gift of the art collection of John and Johanna Bass (the “Collection”), in exchange for making the Collection open and available to the public in a building maintained by the City.
In 2017, The Bass Museum acquired a site-specific work of public art by artist Sylvie Fleury, entitled Eternity Now (2015), which is currently displayed on the east facade of The Bass Museum. Eternity Now is an iconic work of public art that has attracted national and international acclaim, and is a visual landmark for the Collins Park community.
On May 8, 2018, the Historic Preservation Board approved The Bass Museum’s Land Use Board Hearing application for the continued display of Eternity Now on the east façade of the Bass Museum for up to three (3) years. The Bass Museum is required to submit a revised application for Historic Preservation Board review by May 2021. The Bass Museum’s Historic Preservation Board application will request the Historic Preservation Board remove the three (3) year term and request the work convert to a permanent exhibition.
The Bass Museum’s estimated Historic Preservation Board application fee is $2,573.00. Pursuant to Ordinance No. 2018-4176, fees associated with the Historic Preservation Board or Design Review Board may be reduced or waived by a 4/7th affirmative vote of the Mayor and City Commission via resolution. The Friends of the Bass Museum, Inc., have requested a waiver of these fees.
The fee waiver will assist The Bass Museum in investing in public art installations that will benefit the residents and visitors of Miami Beach. The fee waiver will reduce the fees associated with the Historic Preservation Board review of public art and/or non-commercial artistic murals, graphics and images, as per Ordinance No. 2018-4176.
