Arts and Culture at The Betsy
The Betsy - South Beach features year-long programming focused on Community, Arts and Culture and enjoys strong partnerships with several local and national creative entities.
Exploring the halls of The Betsy and throughout our Conference Center, you will delight in our private collection of works on loan from RockArchive, featuring a visual "who's who" of Rock and Roll from photographers like Jill Furmanovsky and Mick Rock. Exciting images of public performances and private moments capture the raw energy and ignite the senses, transporting the viewer to another place in time in these iconic artist's lives. Artists like Bono, Sid Vicious and Amy Winehouse are nestled within the comforting guestrooms, whispering of humanity with every glance.
The Betsy has welcomed works from the NYC-based Museum of Arts and Design with the powerful and globally relevant "Global Africa" project for Art Basel 2010, as well as photography from artists like Richard Bluestein, Bobby Sager and, most recently, Robert Zuckerman.
Literature and Poetry define Betsy's Culture
One of the many exciting cultural attractions that define Greater Miami is a growing community of writers and poets. Miami has a tradition of developing writers like Marjory Stoneman Douglas and contemporary authors Dave Barry and Carl Hiaasen. Betsy holds a special place in her heart for literature and poetry, with a lineage that leads to poet, Hyam Plutzik, a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize.
From sponsoring organizations like O, Miami, who in 2011 kicked off a city-wide event aimed at exposing all 3 million residents of Miami-Dade County to poetry, to featuring an exhibit of poetic broadsides throughout the hotel, The Betsy embraces a heritage and love of literature.
Visit our Poetry Library in the Salon for an inspiring read, or find exciting new works in every guestroom's private library. You will often find hand-picked books for purchase at our Front Desk, as well as a series of lectures, workshops and book signings situated within the walls of The Betsy - South Beach.
