Blog: Pérez Art Museum Miami Honors Gloria Luria at Annual International Women’s Committee Luncheon

On Wednesday, February 20, Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) hosted its annual International Women’s Committee Luncheon, an intimate celebration chaired by Darlene Boytell-Pérez and presented by global women’s fashion brand, Lafayette 148 New York. Honoring Brooklyn native Gloria Luria, an art enthusiast and collector, for her many contributions to the arts in Miami, PAMM’s International Women’s Committee works to further women’s empowerment in the arts to create a more balanced representation in the industry. 

The exclusive celebratory luncheon, featuring cuisine by Constellation Culinary Group, formerly STARR Catering, included a warm welcome by PAMM Director Franklin Sirmans and a presentation on Luria by her son Peter Luria with a Veuve Clicquot toast. Remarks about IWC by Boytell-Pérez followed with a presentation by Chief Curator Tobias Ostrander and Associate Curator María Elena Ortiz, where they introduced two of the museum’s upcoming exhibitions, highlighting female artists Teresita Fernández and Beatriz González.
