New York Academy of Art Presents 'Real Men' at MO Bar + LoungeFriday, December 7, 7pm-9pm – Mandarin Oriental, Miami, 500 Brickell Key Dr, Miami Brickell

Mandarin Oriental, Miami is delighted to welcome the New York Academy of Art (the Academy) for its first Miami Art Week installation.  “Real Men” curated by David Kratz, President of the New York Academy of Art, and Academy Trustee, Actress and Model, Brooke Shields, will be on display in the hotel lobby Monday, December 3 – Friday, December 7. This exhibition examines what “being a man” means given the changing perception of masculinity in America today. It is a discussion of the conflict between the public face and the private desires of men and how they present themselves in light of current social, cultural and political tensions. The installation created by Academy MFA graduates – including the work of Lia Ali, Lou Eberhard, Joshua Dean and Jacob Hayes – features 18 paintings and drawings, ranging in price from $650 to $20,000.  All proceeds from the sales go to student scholarships and programming. @NYAcademyofArt & @MO_MIAMI
