Design for a Living World Cocktails and Auction
Benefiting The Nature Conservancy
The Nature Conservancy held a closing reception and auction for their “Design for a Living World” exhibition at the Coral Gables Museum. A silent auction was held where guests were able to bid on all the pieces in the nationally toured exhibition. Each piece of art was created using only sustainable materials, and each work relates back to the people and environment from where it originates. Some standout works included a salmon skin dress by Isaac Mizrahi, which sold for $2,500, an Abbott Miller chair, which sold for $1,900, and a Maya Lin topographical puzzle, which went for $2,200.
