Join us for our 15th annual Breakfast in the Park, an official Art Basel Miami Beach event. Each year since 2004, the Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum has welcomed guests to enjoy a complimentary breakfast, a lecture by a noted sculptor, and guided tours of our Sculpture Park and exhibitions. This event is free and open to the public thanks to our Presenting Partner, West Kendall Baptist Hospital.
Contemporary sculptor and photographer Petah Coyne will be our featured speaker this year. Known for her elaborately detailed assemblages that hang from ceilings and erupt from the floor, Coyne uses molten wax, silk flowers, sumptuous fabric, and pristine taxidermy to create works that evoke gothic narratives and the excess of the Rococo.
Coyne’s work can be found in numerous permanent museum collections, including MoMA, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Philadelphia Museum of Art, Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, and many more. She is also the recipient of numerous prestigious national awards, including The Rockefeller Foundation Award, three National Endowment for the Arts Awards, and The Pollock-Krasner Foundation Award, among others.
The lecture will begin at 10:00 am. Seating is limited and will be on a first come, first serve basis.
