Dr. Robert B. Feldman, a New York-based art collector, has promised Mira Lehr's Sacred Dreams as a gift to the Jewish Museum of Florida-FIU.
The artwork, titled Sacred Dreams, is comprised of 183 aerial sculptures that descend from the ceiling of the museum, and is estimated at a value of $300,000. The aerial sculptures are made of burned and dyed Japanese paper, acrylic, ink, and resin.
The installation is currently on view at the museum as a temporary loan from Dr. Feldman, and will become part of the museum’s permanent collection in September. The museum is centrally located in South Beach, in the heart of Miami Art Week and Art Basel Miami Beach.
Dr. Feldman previously lived in Florida, and was known for having “one of the most important collections of contemporary art in Florida.”
“I am honored to donate this major work by Mira Lehr to the Jewish Museum of Florida-FIU,” said Dr. Robert B. Feldman. “This large-scale work now has a permanent home in the community for all to enjoy, including the millions of tourists that visit Miami Beach, at this beloved gem of a museum that is of historic importance in the Southeast.”
The Jewish Museum of Florida-FIU is on the National Register of Historic Places, and is the only museum dedicated to telling the story of more than 250 years of Florida Jewish history, art and culture with a growing collection of more than 100,000 items.
