The Bass Museum of Art, one of Miami Beach’s key cultural landmarks, along with event co-chairs Criselda Breene and Christina Getty-Maercks, a select group of the city’s leading arts patrons, socialites and tastemakers hosted its annual fundraiser, “A Night at the Museum,”. The event attracted more than 500 guests who received a private preview of From Picasso to Koons: The Artist As Jeweler curated by Diane Venet.

While enjoying cocktails & refreshments with beats by Johnny the Boy, attendees explored the institution’s new exhibition, From Picasso to Koons: The Artist as Jeweler. The exhibition, featuring over 200 works by 135 artists is an intimate, often whimsical side of some of the greatest artists of recent times, each offering a singular vision of adornment. The exceptional and little-known works of wearable sculpture will reward viewers with new insights into the creative wellsprings of such artistic giants as Georges Braque, Max Ernst, Lucio Fontana, Louise Nevelson, Anthony Caro, Yoko Ono, Man Ray and Anish Kapoor. Attendees also perused a silent auction including art, experiences and luxury items.

A Night at the museum was generously sponsored by Christie's and Duane Morris; media sponsor Cultured Magazine and additional thanks to Pavan, Perrier Sparkling Natural Mineral Water, Miami Club Rum, Soyka and TiramesU.
