Miami Beach's Art Basel Week Set for December 1

Good art x good times x good cause.
The first night of Art Basel Week kicks off in style for a great cause Monday evening, December 1 at the glamorous rooftop of the Mayfair Hotel & Spa Miami with a soiree benefiting the Sabrina Cohen Foundation for Individuals Living with Paralysis – Putting Lives Back Into Motion (SCF). The celebration features portraits taken by Miami artist Henry Perez of "Miami's Leading Ladies of Glamour" at some of the area's most iconic cultural location: Wynwood, Coconut Grove, the Miami Design District, South Beach's Art Deco District, Coral Gables and Little Havana.
The exhibition is titled "La Force de Femmes au Naturel (The Power of Natural Women)" and features 50 of Florida's fabulous females without any retouching or photo-shop (au naturel!), honoring the spirit and power of women leaders who make a difference in the community, like Sabrina Cohen.
The Opening Reception is free and open to the public and promises to draw many of the women celebrated in the exhibition; you must RSVP to 305-445-7550 or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Proceeds from the raffling of specially framed artwork from the show and a silent auction will benefit SCF, the non-profit organization that advocates for research and quality-of-life health initiatives, dedicated to building a global network of top scientists and clinicians in the field of Regenerative Medicine, while funding cutting-edge research and innovative therapies to reverse paralysis and treat other impairments of the Central Nervous System.
The exhibition features 128 artworks —25 portrait prints plus a projection installation of all of the images—and will remain on view for the public at the Mayfair Hotel throughout Art Basel Week.
If you have a love affair with South Florida, well, why not go, if you can or you are local?
