Miami: Jean Shafiroff Hosts The Power Of Art To Heal At The Hotel Croydon (Photographs)

December 14, 2017

Philanthropist Jean Shafiroff, with Nathan & Alan Lieberman of the South Beach Group Hotels, hosted the Power of Art to Heal at the Hotel Croydon Miami Beach during Art Basel Miami 2017.

The event was inspired by Mrs. Shafiroff’s desire to add a philanthropic element to the week’s events. “We all know art heals,” says Mrs. Shafiroff, citing art therapy utilized to treat those in need such as children battered by domestic abuse, veterans and individuals from war-torn countries suffering from PTSD, and incarcerated individuals for whom describing trauma might not be possible. “Art therapy is a common method of treatment by charitable organizations,” says Mrs. Shafiroff.


Notable attendees included: Jean Shafiroff, Alan Lieberman, Diane Lieberman, Lee Fryd, real estate developer Jonathan Fryd, Karen Fryd, Eric Demarchelier, Catherine Demarchelier, Catherine Rodstein, Missy Hargraves, Cydni Duran, Joe Swedroe, Jack Acoco, Ruth Miller, Joyce Moore, Lisa Konsker, Randi Schatz, Sir Ivan Wilzig, Svetlana Nevodtchikova, Steve Knobel, Nicole Noonan, Marie-Claire Gladstone, Kevin Berlin, Tiffany Masters, Mark Henkin, Julie Lamb, Jill Brooke and Barbara Agozzino.

Mrs. Shafiroff felt that Art Basel Miami was the perfect event to draw attention to the role art can play in healing, and to bring the issue to the forefront of the minds of the influential art dealers, artists, exhibitors, and attendees. Mrs. Shafiroff hopes that art fairs, artists, dealers and art patrons might explore how they can further contribute to the communities that they work in and visit. In honor of the event, Mrs. Shafiroff will make a donation The South Florida Youth Foundation, founded and directed by Karen Fryd.
