If you want something done right, you have to do it yourself. That’s exactly what Haute 100-lister Gary Nader is doing to build his art museum, Nader Art Museum Latin America, here in Miami.

Gary Nader has been known for being a force in the art gallery world for over 30 years. Early in his career, he was the director of the Nader Gallery of Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic. He then moved to the United States in 1985 to create a gallery specializing in Latin American Art in Miami. Since then, Nader has been determined to establish himself as an expert in Latin American Art.

Gary Nader announced he will be holding an event where he will place over $100 million dollars worth of his personal art collection for sale to raise funds for the construction of his art museum. “We are currently curating an exclusive collection of great masterpieces from very important artists that we’ll offer during Art Basel Miami Beach this December,” Nader said.

Nader will offer more than 100 important pieces by modern and contemporary artists. This will be the largest collection of masterpieces ever offered during Art Basel. Prices range from a few thousand to $15M for a historic Picasso painting.

Nader also stated that his museum’s primary collection will not be included in the sale. “We own many important works by the same artists including the largest and most important collection of Maestro Fernando Botero in the world and by selling some of those pieces we will be able to bring other important artists’ works to the museum as well. I’ve been tirelessly promoting and championing our art for nearly 40 years and even though we have seen much progress and many international museums and galleries have followed our lead, I strongly believe this much-needed museum will definitely give Latin American art the importance and relevance that have long deserved.”
