Vizcaya Ball

Museo Vault is excited to participate in the widely-anticipated 62nd Annual Ball for Vizcaya Museum and Gardens on November 17, 2018. The ball will highlight Eastern influences on art and high-end fashion with the theme “East Meets West, the Silk Road to Vizcaya.” Philanthropists and art enthusiasts won’t want to miss this elegant affair, which is incomparable in the world of fine art events.

The event features a red carpet entrance, cocktails in the courtyard, and breathtaking views of Biscayne Bay. Guests will enjoy dancing and dining while dressed to reflect the elegant styles of rich Eastern culture and conclude the evening with a dazzling fireworks presentation.

Luxurious Locale & History

The glamorous ball raises funds to preserve the architectural beauty of Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, which was once home to agricultural industrialist James Deering. The luxurious historic home was inspired by Italian villas and was both a tribute to the past and an incorporation of modern styles, shown through the range of time periods in the various art collections.

The vast gardens resemble those of Florence and Rome and are some of the most elaborate in the United States. The landscape design features a secret garden, maze garden, and theater garden, as well as statues and elaborate fountains. The foliage includes orchids, a favorite of Deering, and subtropical plants that are compatible with Florida’s humid climate.

Silent Auction

A key component in raising the funds to support the preservation of Vizcaya Museum and Gardens is the silent auction. Auction items have been donated by local philanthropists and prominent businesses, including Museo Vault. Guests will have the opportunity to view the auction items and privately bid on them at the ball or visit the auction website for a complete list of auction items one week before the event.

Museo Vault Presents: Locust Projects 20th Anniversary Event

This entry was posted in Events on by .

The 20th Anniversary Benefit Dinner for the Locust Projects is sponsored by the Museo Vault, a local fine art and antique storage facility dedicated to meeting the highest needs of art clients around the world.

The event will be held November 10, 2018, at The Standard Spa Miami Beach. From 7:00 to 10:30 p.m. guests will enjoy fine dining among friends and colleagues, as well as artist performances and other creative art events.

We will be honoring the incredible chairs of the board of directors, Debra and Dennis Scholl and our founding artists, Westen Charles, Elizabeth Withstandley, and COOPER.

We also feature Locust Projects’ first major publication, produced by Tra Publishing.

What is Locust Projects?

In 1998, three Miami-based artists came together to organize a not for profit exhibition space for local, national and international artists, inviting and encouraging contemporary visual artists to create temporary site-specific installations, to use the space for experimentation and development without the restrictions and pressures that accompany traditional exhibition spaces. This became what we know as Locust Projects. Now located in Miami, Locust Projects is involved in many educational programs and initiatives that benefit the local community.

Dennis and Debra Scholl

In 2001, when Locust Projects became officially incorporated, a board of directors was added and Debra and Dennis Scholl were welcomed as the founding chairs of the board. They continue serving in this capacity today, twenty years later.

Debra and Dennis Scholl started their careers as lawyers but made the switch to real estate development, which has allowed them to devote more time to their passions and their community. They are avid art collectors, current and past members of the board of directors for several museums, and have even created their own wine label in Australia. Dennis Scholl is currently the CEO of ArtCenter/South Florida.

Founding Artists

Westen Charles – Known for quirky psychological elements incorporated in his designs. Studied at the University of Miami and the Pratt Institute.

Elizabeth Withstandley – Works with multi-media installations, video art, photography, conceptual, and digital. Studied at the Pratt Institute and the University of Alabama.

COOPER – Known for emotional sculptures portraying emotion, death, and the struggle for power. His pieces include an element of darkness and obscurity. Studied at the New World School of the Arts in Miami, Pratt Institute, and the University of Alabama.
