Frost Art Museum is joined by Presenting Partner West Kendall Baptist Hospital for Breakfast in the Park, an official Art Basel Miami Beach event. Each year since 2004, the Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum has welcomed guests to enjoy a complimentary breakfast, a lecture by a noted sculptor, and guided tours of our Sculpture Park and exhibitions. This event is free and open to the public. This year, Elizabeth Turk, internationally acclaimed sculptor and MacArthur Fellow will be our featured speaker. Turk is known for transforming her signature medium of marble into strikingly intricate objects that defy convention and challenge our preconceptions of what marble can do. Turk pushes her medium to its limit, creating in each sculpture a provocative tension between the intrinsic strength of the stone and its inherent fragility, while speaking to larger conceptual and spiritual concerns of time, matter, and space.
