From Dec 3rd through Dec 7th, 2008. Art Miami will be held in Midtown Miami from December 3rd through 7th, 2008. In its 19th edition, the fair will feature more than 115 leading national and international contemporary art galleries and will showcase the work of European, American and Asian artists through a prominent selection of art, special exhibitions and curatorial projects, outdoor sculptures and video installations inside a 100,000-square-foot pavilion venue. BlackRock, the nation’s largest asset manager, will be the fair’s main sponsor.
Art Miami 2008 has announced a partnership with Constance Collins Margulies’ Sundari Foundation; a Miami based public charity dedicated to education and social inclusion of homeless women and children, and its supporting foundation, the Lotus Endowment Fund. Art Miami and the Sundari Foundation will work together to create a public awareness and fundraising campaign entitled Heart Miami that will highlight the spiritual "heart of art" and the profound ways in which art has the capacity to touch and uplift those most in need.
As part of this initiative, the Sundari Foundation will create a socially conscious line of products bearing the words Heart Miami. All proceeds of the initiative will benefit the Lotus House Women’s Shelter, a unique resource center and shelter with wrap around support services housing approximately 130 homeless women and children in Miami each year. All proceeds from ticket sales to Art Miami’s Opening Night VIP Preview will also benefit the Lotus House Women’s Shelter and other Sundari Foundation initiatives. In addition, Art Miami will be a main sponsor of the Sundari Foundation’s Fourth Annual Contemporary Art Auction and Dinner, taking place on November 8th, 2008 at the Margulies Art Warehouse.
