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

About the speaker:

 

Anthony Spirito, Ph.D., ABPP is Professor of Psychiatry and Human Behavior at the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University.  He received his Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from Virginia Commonwealth University and completed his predoctoral and postdoctoral training at Boston Children’s Hospital. Dr. Spirito has published over 200 peer-reviewed articles and his work has been supported by NIMH, NIAAA, and NIDA as well as foundations, such as the American Foundation for Suicide Research. Along with colleagues at Brown, he recently completed three treatment development studies to determine if combined approaches, e.g., exercise and CBT, can increase the efficacy of treatment for adolescent depression.  Dr, Spirito and colleagues developed an integrated, intensive CBT protocol for adolescents with substance use disorders, NSSI, depression, and suicidality as well as their parents. He and his colleagues just completed a test of this protocol in a large efficacy trial with a sample of adolescents discharged from inpatient psychiatric care. He also just completed a trial of the same protocol in an Intensive Outpatient Program in a community mental health clinic where mental health counselors were trained in the protocol.
