“The sensational EVAN and STEFANIE REED are a key Miami arts couple. She has played an integral role in Art Basel Miami Beach since its inception, and also acts as an advisor to private collectors. He is a director for U.S. Trust Bank of America Private Wealth Management, and sits on the boards of MOCA and the Miami Children’s Museum. Together they are board members of the Friends of Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center. Here with ROSA DE LA CRUZ (left), whose space in the Design District showcasing her and husband Carlos’ collection is celebrating its first anniversary. No wonder they are considered among America’s top collectors of contemporary and emerging artists!”
“A fabulous couple: LAURE HÉRIARD DUBREUIL—the CEO and cofounder of The Webster boutique, a historic Art Deco space that combines high-fashion designs, art and the restaurant Kaspia—and accomplished artist AARON YOUNG met two years ago at Art Basel Miami Beach, where he created his legendary motorcycle painting performances. They split their time between Miami, Paris and New York, where he is represented by the Bortolami gallery, as well as Beverly Hills’ Gagosian Gallery and many other top spaces worldwide. In Miami, you can also see his work at Mr Chow and Soho Beach House.”
“The dynamic MAX STRANG, with wife TAMARA, has redefined the Miami lifestyle: He is one of our first and most celebrated green architects, creating a number of environmentally conscious designs. His blend of contemporary and Asian styles has been seen in numerous private homes and projects for such clients as Barton G. and the University of Miami. A philanthropist who is on the board of The Kampong National Tropical Botanical Garden, he maintains homes and offices in Miami and Telluride.”
