CATEGORY: Thinkers COMPANY: Podhurst Orseck, PA INDUSTRY: Law WHAT MAKES HIM HAUTE: Today, Miami stands as the only major city in America without a major art museum. But that’s about to change, thanks in large part to the work of Miami Art Museum Chairman Aaron Podhurst. Podhurst has been an instrumental force in the continued development of the museum’s new home, scheduled to open its doors in 2013. Once completed, MAM’s state-of-the-art building in Miami’s waterfront Museum Park will be one of the United State’s most important artistic links to Latin America—a cultural port that imports and exports the visual arts. When he’s not rallying public, private, and political support for MAM, Aaron is tending to his legal practice at Miami law firm Podhurst Orseck, PA. As the firm’s founding partner, Aaron has landed some of the most significant legal verdicts and settlements in aviation law history.
