Bakehouse Art Complex and El Espacio 23 are proud to present Perspectives on Collecting, a panel discussion featuring notable Miami-based collectors Jorge M. Pérez and Mitchell “Micky” Wolfson, Jr. Presented in a lively, informal discussion format, the two collectors shared their insights on collecting art and design from two distinctly different perspectives.
Jorge M. Pérez, founder of El Espacio 23 and nationally recognized philanthropist, invests in diverse cultural production through his efforts and acquisitions of contemporary art from Latin America, Africa and their respective diasporas. Mitchell “Micky” Wolfson, Jr has amassed hundreds of thousands of objects that reflect the persuasive power of art and design in material culture from 1850 to 1950. Their passions for collecting have made them highly influential in their respective fields and have helped transform Miami’s cultural ecosystem.
The online program was co-moderated by El Espacio 23 and Jorge M. Pérez collection Art Director Patricia Hanna and Bakehouse Art Complex Director and Wolfsonian-FIU Director Emerita Cathy Leff
