St. Regis Bal Harbour, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Rosenbaum Contemporary are presenting Breaking Through—Miami, featuring artists Omar Hassan and Helidon Xhixha, on Thursday, December 3, from 6 to 9 p.m. in the BH Burger Bar at the St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort in support of the Diabetes Research Institute Foundation (DRI). During the event, Omar Hassan will create a new painting in his Breaking Through series which will be auctioned off to benefit the DRI immediately upon its completion.
Join us on one of these two special nights to meet artist Mira Lehr and celebrate her illustrious career. Lehr studied painting with renowned artist Robert Motherwell and was at the forefront of abstract expressionism as a young female artist in the 1950s and ’60s. In 1969, she was selected to participate with Buckminster Fuller on the first World Games Scenario Project at the New York Studio School. Lehr’s art has been exhibited by numerous U.S. museums including the New Museum in New York; the Smithsonian Museum of American Art in Washington, D.C.; and the Getty Museum Research Center in Los Angeles as well as American embassies around the world.
