The future of collecting art is collaborative and community-led. Many art lovers have questions about how to meet artists who align with their values, and how to buy work in a welcoming, informative environment. Commissioner was started to help answer these questions.
Commissioner is an art membership program that brings emerging collectors and contemporary artists together around the experiences unique to our city. Every quarter, they commission new work by some of Miami’s most gifted painters, photographers, sculptors and multidisciplinary artists for our Collector-level members. Commissioner’s programming, which is available at all membership levels, also helps demystify the art world, and introduces curious locals to artist studios, collector homes and respected experts in the field.

By empowering our community to become patrons of Miami’s vibrant arts ecology, they have helped participants gain the knowledge and confidence to expand their collections and support beyond Commissioner. That’s the magic of collecting art together—there’s an enduring ripple effect.
The highly-anticipated third season is finally launching, in a time when local artists need support the most. Whether virtual or in-person, their platform will help keep Miami’s bustling art community alive. Learn more about joining Commissioner Season Three at commissioner.us.
