Haute 100 Miami Update: Jorge Perez Donates Cuban Art Collection to FIU


FIU’s School of International Public Affairs has something to smile about. In another grand gesture of art-related philanthropy, both Haute Living’s cover star Jorge Perez and wife Darlene recently donated their extensive collection of Cuban Art to the university. The collection, which is estimated at about $315, 000, is also paired with an additional contribution of $250,000.

Their kind endowment to FIU stems from Perez being an alum of the university, who recently said: “We are excited to be able to share with students, faculty, and the South Florida community the importance of art throughout Cuban history.” The collection, which includes works from artists such as Eduardo Albera, and Jose Bedia, will be available for public exhibition on October 16th.
