Jaume Plensa’s “Looking Into My Dreams, Awilda” is now on display at Museum Park.
Related Group’s Jorge Pérez owns the 40-foot sculpture. He plans to keep it at Museum Park for two years, then move it temporarily to Auberge before it returns to his private collection, according to the Herald.
Pérez also announced yesterday that he was donating $5 million worth of art and $10 million worth of cash over the next 10 years to the Pérez Art Museum Miami. Of the donated cash, $1 million must be used towards more Cuban art and $4 million to Latin American art, with the remainder going to the museum’s endowment. The artwork includes 200 pieces of Cuban art.
The donation is in addition to the $20 million in cash and $15 million in art that Pérez pledged to donate over 10 years starting in 2011, which bought him naming rights to the museum.
Pérez’s total donation to the museum now stands at $25 million in cash and art valued at $20 million over a period of 15 years.
