As galleries struggle to reorient to our new circumstances, many are still managing to find ways to support their larger communities. In Miami, Gary Nader Fine Art is leading that charge with “To Serve Mankind Online Benefit Auction,” a 95-lot auction curated from Nader’s own collection.

With works by Fernando Botero, Amelia Peláez, Wilfredo Lam, and Joaquin Torres Garcia on offer, the sale is sure to appeal to Latin American art enthusiasts in particular. Works by leading contemporary artists from around the globe are peppered in as well, including those by Yoshitomo Nara & Hiroshi Sugito, Nan Goldin, and Thomas Ruff.

The auction, which runs through May 1, is organized in partnership with local Miami royalty Emilio and Gloria Estefan, whose charity Estefan Kitchen is currently providing more than 500 daily free meals to healthcare workers and first responders at hospitals in Miami-Dade. A portion of the proceeds from the auction will also go to fund the Doughty Family Foundation which is raising money to provide daily meals to families in need in the Dominican Republic. 

The gallery is calling the impressive auction a way to “show our gratitude for the heroic efforts” of the first responders in its community. 

To Serve Mankind Online Benefit Auction” is open for bidding through May 1, 2020.
