Combining arts and culture with real estate their efforts raise funds the foundation, to further its mission to support emerging and mid-career artists from Latin America.
ONE Sotheby’s International Realty launched the initiative at its new 6,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art branch in Miami Beach’s South of Fifth neighborhood. In a unique allotment of space, 2,000 square feet is dedicated to a walk-in exhibition space displaying works by contemporary artists from Latin America that is available for purchase. All proceeds will benefit the artists contributing to this initiative as well as CIFO’s Endowment Fund, which was created to ensure the perpetuity and continuity of the foundation’s mission and accompanying programs.
