Locust Projects’ 2024 Annual Benefit Dinner honors Alberto Ibargüen, outgoing president of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, and his visionary legacy and unwavering championship of the arts that has transformed Miami into a vibrant world class center of art and culture over the past 18 years.

This year’s Benefit Dinner celebration will be framed within a captivating suspended sculptural installation by Mexico City-based artist Tania Candiani which is the inspiration for a special performance in honor of Ibargüen by dancer and choreographer Jonah Bokaer. Up to 150 guests will be enchanted by this memorable and distinctive experience created in collaboration with Le Basque Caterers.
