Art Week is getting into full swing across Miami and Miami Beach, with openings, parties and events drawing art collectors, real estate investors and art-loving locals.

Here are some of the outdoor art displays open to the public this week:

Ritz Rainbow, Miami Beach

Lionheart Capital unveiled the Ritz Rainbow on Monday at the Ritz-Carlton Residences, Miami Beach. The 25-mile light beam art installation was designed by artist Yvette Mattern and will be visible from 6 p.m. to midnight until Saturday.

Brickell Heights, Brickell

Related Group, led by avid art collector and Miami condo king Jorge Perez, hired Fabian Burgos to paint a 35,000-square-foot mural for Brickell Heights. The Argentinian artist is painting horizontal mural, similar to the vertical piece by Markus Linnenbrick outside of the newly opened SLS Brickell. That project also features art throughout, including a Botero sculpture outside.

Magic City Sculpture Park, Little River

Sillicon Valley veteran Bob Zangrillo and Metro 1’s Tony Cho are unveiling Magic City Sculpture Park in Miami’s Little River neighborhood on Wednesday. The park will feature a sculpture from Burning Man 2016, “Magic” by Laura Kimpton, and three others, including one by Kimpton’s “@ Sign,” Yelena Filipchuk’s “HYBYCOZO,” Olivia Steele’s “What You Seek is Seeking You” and “You Are Exactly Where You Need To Be.”

The park, on the corner of Northeast 62nd Street and Northeast Fourth Avenue, is part of the first phase of Cho’s mixed-use neighborhood. He told The Real Deal in October while the overall scope of the project is not yet decided, he plans to adaptively re-use roughly 200,000 square feet of existing buildings on the land.

Wynwood Walls, Wynwood

Goldman Properties is unveiling 12 new murals at the Wynwood Walls on Tuesday, which will be open to the public beginning at 11 p.m. This year’s mural installation is called “Fear Less” and features artists like Audrey Kawasaki of California, Felipe Pantone of Spain, and Tatiana Suarez of Florida.

The Bass, Miami Beach

Art Basel and the Bass Museum will open their “Ground Control” show at Collins Park on Wednesday, free of charge and open to the public starting at 8 p.m. Twenty works by artists like Magdalena Abakanowicz, Alicja Kwade and Tony Tasset will be displayed on the lawns through Sunday, Dec. 4. A handful will remain through March.

The Bass, which will reopen in the spring following renovations, will also reveal a large-scale sculpture by Ugo Rondinone called “Miami Mountain” in the park.
