Breakfast in the Park

Join us for Breakfast in the Park, an official Art Basel Miami Beach eventpresented in partnership with West Kendall Baptist Hospital. Each year since 2004, the Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum has welcomed guests to enjoy a complimentary breakfast, a lecture by a noted sculptor, and guided tours of our Sculpture Park and exhibitions. This event is free and open to the public.

This year, Los Angeles-based Daniel Joseph Martinez will take the stage as our guest speaker. For more than two decades, Martinez has tackled questions of race, identity, and the body in his multidisciplinary work. His sculpture A Meditation on the Possibility of Romantic Love; or, Where You Goin’ with That Gun in Your Hand: Bobby Seale and Huey Newton Discuss the Relationships between Expressionism and Social Reality Present in Hitler’s Paintings, from 2005, graces the entrance of the museum. Martinez has represented the U.S. in 11 biennials worldwide, including the Venice Biennial, Mexico City Biennial, and two Whitney Biennials.bitp-2017_500x400
