Each year, in celebration of Art Basel Miami Beach, the Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum at Florida International University hosts Breakfast in the Park presented by West Kendall Baptist Hospital. This event draws hundreds of art enthusiasts, patrons, collectors, gallery owners and artists from around the world, many of whom are visiting Miami for Art Basel. Each year a noted sculptor is invited to speak. Guests enjoy a complimentary outdoor breakfast, informal lecture and guided tours of the Sculpture Park as well as the exhibitions.

This year, Los Angeles-based Daniel Joseph Martinez will take the stage as our guest speaker. For more than two decades, Martinez has tackled questions of race, identity, and the body in his multidisciplinary work. His sculpture A Meditation on the Possibility of Romantic Love; or, Where You Goin' with That Gun in Your Hand: Bobby Seale and Huey Newton Discuss the Relationships between Expressionism and Social Reality Present in Hitler's Paintings, from 2005, graces the entrance of the museum. Martinez has represented the U.S. in 11 biennials worldwide, including the Venice Biennial, Mexico City Biennial, and two Whitney Biennials.
