The Contemporary Arts Program (CAP) commissions artists to develop site-specific work inspired by Vizcaya. The program, initiated in 2006, draws on the spirit of creative dialogue that characterized Vizcaya’s founding, provides our visitors with new ways of seeing the historic estate, and strengthens relations with contemporary artists.
CAP Turns 10! On May 25 at 6:30 p.m., join us for a celebration of Vizcaya's centennial and a decade of the Contemporary Arts Program (CAP) with the launch of a new publication highlighting the centennial CAP exhibition Lost Spaces and Stories of Vizcaya. The event will feature special performances by past CAP artists, special access and tours. The book will be available for purchase and Lost Spaces artists will be on hand to sign copies.
The Contemporary Arts Program has received major support from The Danielson Foundation, Harpo Foundation, Stella M. Holmes, John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, Chauncey and Marion D. McCormick Family Foundation.
CAP Past Projects
CAP projects range from long-term installations by individual artists to one-night-only programs featuring the work of several artists. All CAP projects explore themes related to Vizcaya and provide new ways of viewing the estate.
