The Bass Museum is one of Miami’s most overlooked institutions. Located in a historic art deco building that formerly housed the Miami Beach Public Library, the museum opened its doors in 1964 propelled by a generous donation from eponymous benefactors. Yet, it wasn’t until 2002 that architect Arata Isozaki nearly doubled the cramped floor space to create a more expansive feel. This year, that same architect is presiding over massive design renovations that will again double the programmable space without altering its footprint. Despite the scope of the project, nothing is stopping the curatorial team from championing exhibits in adjoining facilities. Continue reading here.

DIANE AND ALAN LIEBERMAN DONATE $1 MILLION TO BASS MUSEUM OF ART

MAJOR GIFT ANNOUNCED AT 50th ANNIVERSARY GALA
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 1

At the museum’s golden anniversary gala on Saturday, November 1, George Lindemann, President, Bass Museum of Art Board of Trustees, announced that Diane and Alan Lieberman, owners of the South Beach Hotel Group, longtime art collectors and active community arts patrons, have donated $1 million to the museum. The gift will support the museum’s exhibitions of contemporary art and education programs, Lindemann said.

“Diane and Alan Lieberman’s generosity is an amazing endorsement of our organization, “ said Lindemann. “Miami Beach is a creative and forward-thinking city and we are so fortunate to have the Liebermans as our patrons.  To receive this gift on the occasion of our 50th Anniversary ensures that the museum will continue to be one of the most important cultural institutions in this community for generations.  We are deeply grateful.”

Alan Lieberman said “Miami Beach has been my home for the past 25 years. My business is here and I have raised my family here. I want to give back to this community that has given my family so much. The Bass Museum of Art is doing wonderful work and I am proud to support their exhibitions and education programs. “

The announcement of the Lieberman’s gift was the highlight of a fabulous celebration. Board Members and Gala Co-Chairs Criselda Breene and Soledad Picón arranged special creative experiences for guests throughout the evening. During cocktail hour a musician played a gold-leafed Steinway piano that had been part of the Bass family’s original collection. Each guest received a limited edition piece Limestone Bearing Gold Veins Brooch created by artist Cristina Lei Rodriguez especially for the 50th anniversary celebration.

At dinner, Executive Director and Chief Curator Silva Karman Cubiñá thanked patrons for their support with a presentation of James Lee Byars’ iconic performance art work The Perfect Kiss, 1975. Byars, one of the artists featured in the current Bass Museum of Art exhibition GOLD, and the subject of a recent retrospective at MoMA PS1, described this work as “simultaneously a prayer, a poem and a play…a mystical expression of my appreciation of the world.”

After dinner, artist Nektar de Stagni led a spirited participatory performance “Designer Dance Party” which packed the dance floor. Le Basque Catering and Production elegantly transformed museum galleries and the 285 guests embraced the spirit of the evening by adding touches of gold to their formal attire. When the party finally wrapped up, guests were sent home with a bottle of Artisan Acqua cologne, courtesy of John Varvatos.

Special thanks to Co-Chairs Criselda Breene and Soledad Picón who created a beautiful evening for all to enjoy.  We are also grateful to gala sponsors Art Basel Miami Beach, George Lindemann, Susan and Dennis Richard, Sagamore, The Art Hotel, Cricket and Marty Taplin, C1 Bank, City of Miami Beach, Coastal Construction Group, Collins Park Neighborhood Association, Duane Morris LLP, FAENA, Michael Larkin, Jeffrey Miller, Craig Robins and Jackie Soffer, and Saks Fifth Avenue Bal Harbour. Additional support provided by Le Basque Catering & Productions, John Varvatos, Cristina Lei Rodriguez and Nektar de Stagni.

This industrious gentleman was the artist Michael Scoggins, the creator of a sizable new work entitled “Chalk” (2014), the most recent addition to the Bass Museum’s “tc: temporary contemporary” program.

Patricia Hernandez would like to sell you an island. Don’t worry — she’s not another airhead celebrity realtor bidding for a Bravo TV contract. Her island is “virtual,” named “Bit Key,” and for sale only with the digital bitcoin currency.
“My piece is an internet-based project exploring the signification of gold via crypto currency,” explains the Miami artist. “I’ve created a virtual island based on the geocoordinates of a real island for sale off the coast of Florida.”
