Calendar: PAMM Art of the Party

Event Description

Pérez Art Museum Miami will host its fourth annual Art of the Party, the museum’s largest fundraiser event of the year, on March 17, 2018. Art of the Party 2018 will honor Teresita Fernández, one of today’s leading contemporary artists, and philanthropist Patricia Papper. 

The event, presented by Valentino, will feature three exclusive guest experiences conceptualized by Lee Brian Schrager, as well as culinary collaborations by STARR Catering Group and Chef Michelle Bernstein. Bringing together cultural philanthropists, artists, civic leaders and arts supporters at Miami’s flagship art museum, the evening will showcase the world-class museum’s unique architecture and celebrate Miami’s position as an international art capital.

​Teresita Fernández is an internationally acclaimed artist known for prominent public installations and large-scale experiential sculptures designed to evoke striking landscapes. Her work and influence has been vital to the evolution of PAMM for over a decade. In 2002, Fernández designed an oval room that housed an immersive, minimalist self-titled exhibition exploring the elements of light, shadow, water, clouds and foliage. Additionally, Fernández’s Eclipse (2002) was featured in Routes of Influence (2016-2017), an exhibition of the museum’s permanent collection, and her massive glazed ceramic piece, Fire (America) 5 (2017), has served as the focal point of all three chapters of On the Horizon: Contemporary Cuban Art from the Jorge M. Pérez Collection (2017-2018). Fernández has had solo exhibitions at Olana State Historic Site, Hudson, NY (2017); Mass MoCA, North Adams, MA (2014); Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami, FL (2011); Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, TX (2011); Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland, OH (2011); USF Contemporary Art Museum, University of South Florida, Tampa, FL (2009); and Centro de Arte Contemporáneo de Málaga, Spain (2005).

Patricia M. Papper is a Miami-based arts advocate and philanthropist, as well as a longtime supporter of PAMM. In 1983, she became a founding member of the museum, when it was the Center for the Fine Arts, and has been involved with the institution ever since. Throughout the years, she has served on the board of trustees; supported many exhibitions, like Basquiat: The Unknown Notebooks; donated works of art and funds for the acquisition of art; participated in several committees; and has been a part of major fundraising events, like the gala and Corporate Luncheon.
