‘It’s a reflection of my personality, perhaps.” This is how Martin Z. Margulies described his $800 million collection to an interviewer in 2008. “It’s a collection of my external and internal experiences in my life.” A good deal of Margulies’s personality is on display in Miami’s Wynwood District at the Warehouse, a nonprofit organization that he founded in 1999 to house his collection of American and European contemporary art, and to provide art education to students and visitors. “[Art] is about learning and educating yourself,” Margulies once said, and he applies that belief to himself as a collector. “It never ends. You can always educate yourself…forever.” The Warehouse is an annual stop for the crowds visiting Art Basel Miami Beach every December; there they see new acquisitions as well as mainstays of the collection, including works by Donald Judd and George Segal.
