This is one of the largest collections of erotic art in the country. From photographs to fascinating objects.
A truly sensuous museum
A museum devoted to erotic art is the perfect match for a sexy city like Miami. Situated in the middle of Miami Beach, the World Erotic Art Museum (WEAM), which opened in 2005, is the work of the American Naomi Wilzig, an extremely natural and uninhibited seventy-year-old art collector. At nearly 80, Wilzig is the director of the largest museum of erotic art – in its strictest sense – in the country. The 4,000 paintings, sculptures, photographs and tapestries come from all around the world and, for this reason, there are themed rooms on the erotic art of Indian, Mexico and pre-Colombia, Europe, China and Japan... It also welcomes visiting exhibitions devoted to different artistic currents, for instance, Art Deco or Art Nouveau, as well as sexual trends and fetishes. In this gallery you can see pieces which are suggestive, appealing, surprising, sensual or even amusing. Each and every one is a work of art (www.weam.com).
