JW Marriott Miami, the luxurious AAA Four Diamond hotel located in the heart of Brickell Avenue, is proud to announce the launch of their Artist Appreciation program, an initiative dedicated to promoting local and international artists through on-site installations and community support. The JW Marriott Miami has partnered with world-renowned art dealer, Diego Costa Peuser, President / Publisher of Arte al Dia Internacional and Co-founder/ Director of PINTA, who unveiled the first installation at the hotel on November 19, 2014.
Costa Rican sculptor Jorge JimÃ©nez MartÃnez (Deredia) is the first artist on display at JW Marriott Miami, featuring two of his acclaimed bronze pieces, â€œSerenidadâ€ and â€œCanto a la vida,â€ for three months. Derediaâ€™s art pieces are organic forms modified by their environment, the force of growth and gravity, and influenced by pre-Columbian art. He has held 46 personal exhibitions and 100 collective exhibitions.
As part of the hotelâ€™s initiative to support the arts, the JW Marriott Miami will also be sponsoring PINTA Miami 2014, an exclusive international art fair with exhibits of modern and contemporary art by Latin American, Spanish and Portuguese artists. PINTA Miami Art Fair will take place for the first time in its seven-year history, which has been previously held in New York City, in Miami December 3 â€“ 7, during Art Basel Miami Beach 2014.
