Influencers from Art Institute of Chicago, Brooklyn Museum, J. Paul Getty Museum, Museo Nacional de Arte, Museum of Modern Art, and Studio Museum in Harlem, to name a few, enjoyed a picturesque night on the terrace overlooking Biscayne Bay, complete with live entertainment and salsa dancing under the stars.
