“Your first glimpses of Bernice Steinbaum, one of Manhattan and Miami’s most fondly remembered art gallery owners, will remind you of Iris Apfel, the self- described “geriatric starlet” of her own recent feature biopic”, writes Kurt Brokaw.
To kick off its 26th edition, Art Miami, America’s foremost contemporary art fair, hosted a private cocktail reception and screening of the award-winning film BERNICE, by first time filmmaker Kristina Sorge. Presented by Art Miami and Merrill Lynch Wealth Management, the event honored Bernice Steinbaum, who is celebrating her 10th year exhibiting at Art Miami.
For Bernice’s 10th anniversary at Art Miami, she curated a booth titled “The Peaceable Kingdom.” This booth will display work by Enrique Gomez de Marina, Troy Abbott, Carolla Bravo and Patrick Jacob.
