Mercedes-Benz of Coral Gables loves community and art — and Art Basel season provided the perfect opportunity to celebrate both at a special event benefitting Nicklaus Children’s Hospital.
The Scout Guide Miami’s featured artists displayed some of their finest work in the dealership’s showroom and next to a new 2019 Mercedes-Benz SL full of unwrapped toys. All toys were sent to Nicklaus Children’s Hospital for distribution on Christmas to children too sick to go home.
Guests browsed the expansive art show curated by Lowe Art Museum director Jill Deupi while enjoying music, cocktails, and hors-d’oeuvres. A portion of the bar was provided by sponsor Buffalo Trace Bourbon and Wheatley Vodka.
“While many are headed to Wynwood and Miami Beach to see amazing art, we are offering an opportunity to participate in Miami Art Week right here in Coral Gables,” said Denie Harris, marketing director at Mercedes-Benz of Coral Gables.
“The Scout Guide Miami is excited to have the opportunity to showcase these amazing artists beyond the pages of our book,” said Meredith Kallaher, editor of The Scout Guide Miami. “We have so much artistic talent in Miami! While visiting artists participating in Art Basel are remarkable, so too are many that live in South Florida.”
The evening’s participating artists included Johanna Boccardo, Carola Bravo, Klara Chavarria, Liv Dockerty, Jamie Eroncig Jones, and Camilla Webster.
In addition to bringing together esteemed clients, friends, and the Mercedes-Benz of Coral Gables team for a celebration of art, the event provided an opportunity to spotlight and support the efforts of Nicklaus Children’s Hospital because of its mission: “To inspire hope and promote lifelong health by providing the best care to every child.”
