Palm Beach Modern + Contemporary Art Fair (PBM+C), presented by Art Miami and hosted by the City of West Palm Beach, returned for its second edition from January 11th – January 15th where it was immediately recognized as a leading international contemporary and modern art fair. Attendance of prestigious art collectors, connoisseurs, and notable museum professionals surged through the weekend, while galleries reported significant six and seven figure sales of investment quality blue chip, contemporary and Post-War works.

More than 19,000 attendees visited the Fair, in a 65,000-square-foot pavilion conveniently located and nestled between City Place and the Palm Beach Convention Center on Okeechobee Blvd throughout Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend to admire work from more than 65 international galleries representing several hundred artists. NFL legend Joe Namath, former Metallica bassist Jason Newsted and his wife Nicole Newsted, famed photographer Harry Benson and his wife Gigi Benson, Executive Director for the Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens Roger Ward, and Ralph Lauren model Morgan O’Connor were among the 6,200 guests who were first through the door at the VIP opening to greet PBM+C Founder and Owner Nick Korniloff, his wife Pamela Cohen.

The VIP preview benefited The Palm Beach Zoo & Conservation Society, The Joe Namath Neurological Research Center and the Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens, and was sponsored by Christie’s International Real Estate, “The Official Luxury Real Estate sponsor of Palm Beach Modern + Contemporary,” who, together with its international affiliates, hosted an elegant booth at the main entrance of the fair, showcasing luxury residential property offerings from around the world.

PBM+C Founder and Owner Nick Korniloff comments, “Palm Beach Modern + Contemporary is the most important fair to take place in Palm Beach County during the season. The Fair brings a world-class, internationally respected group of art dealers and their artists to one of the most culturally savvy and discerning collecting audiences in the world. The fair was responsible for the acquisition of many works in the six and seven figure range in its second year, and we look forward to returning in 2019.”

2018 Be A Voice, Moments of Brilliance

2018 Be A Voice, Moments of BrillianceSaturday, January 13, 7pm-12am – Mandarin Oriental, 500 Brickell Bay Drive, Miami Brickell

Voices For Children Foundation, the largest of the non-profits that supports the Guardian ad Litem Program in Florida, kicked off the winter gala season and held its Moments Of Brilliance, Be A Voice Gala 2018 at the serene Mandarin Oriental, Miami, presented by Harry Winston. Now in its 22nd year, the esteemed gala was not only attended by 400 of the city’s luminaries in philanthropy and business; but more importantly, it also raised over 740,000 dollars that ultimately facilitates advocacy for children in foster care in Miami Dade County.

The sparkling evening began with an intimate cocktail reception in the plush ballroom area, transformed by a dazzling display of Harry Winston jewelry and timepiece creations for guests to admire and enjoy. Following the cocktail, guests danced to spinning tunes by DJ Kucha and bid on a live auction for a variety of once-in-a-lifetime experiences that included: a retreat in Aspen, a wine immersion in Chile, a Miami experience with the Miami Heat and the Fontainebleau and so much more. 

As dinner was beginning, guests were engaged with a thought-provoking perspective from Bradel, a brave young woman who was able to eloquently speak about her experience as a victim of human trafficking. Now working full-time as a Mentor-Survivor with current victims of human trafficking, she concluded her speech with, “I now get to stand in their corner and be their voice and instill in them the hope that they can be more than their labels.”
