Night at the Museum
It’s not every day that a museum exhibition opens up its vault and unloads a few covetable goods for sale. But on Friday, October 25, the nationally traveled “Design for a Living World” collection is putting pieces up for auction at the Coral Gables Museum in Miami — and several unique, eco-minded items are up for grabs.
Presented by the Nature Conservancy, the soon-to-close exhibit features nine highly-recognized designers that created one-of-a-kind art pieces from all over the world using only sustainable materials. These items include a gorgeous salmon skin dress (which looks like sequins) from Isaac Mizrahi, woven Bolivian handbags from former Kate Spade designer Paulina Reyes, Ted Muehling’s glossy geometric bracelets made from vegetable ivory in Micronesia, and even a pair of python heels made from the invasive Burmese python from the Everglades – all available for purchase at the auction to benefit The Nature Conservancy. Feeling Florida-bound? Details are below. (Pssst…there’s also an online auction portion if you can’t make the event. Check it out here.)
