Meet The Related Group's Corporate Art Buyer

Posted by Brooke LaRue
0 Comments

2015 BCA Leadership Award recipient, Jorge M. Pérez, is an avid collector and supporter of the arts nationally and in south Florida, where his real estate development company, The Related Group, is based. City and Shore Magazine recently interviewed Patricia Hanna, who purchases art for Pérez’s personal art collection and for The Related Group.

 

After earning her master’s in art history from the University of Miami, Hanna worked at the Lowe Art Museum as an assistant curator, and later at Miami Art Central as the exhibition manager. According to City and Shore Magazine, she is best known for the decade she spent at the Cisneros Foundation, awarding grants to emerging artists.

 

Hanna joined the corporate world in 2013 when she began working for Pérez. In a year and a half she has doubled The Related Group’s art holdings to its current state of nearly 700 pieces. Now, with south Florida in a “building boom,” Hanna is faced with the challenge of filling each building The Related Group is developing with carefully curated pieces of art. In 2014 alone she spent $10 million bringing art from around the world to Miami and the surrounding area.

 

Two of The Related Group’s projects include the Icon Las Olas building, which will be focal point of Fort Lauderdale’s skyline, and two Auberge Resorts properties. When complete, the Icon Las Olas building will feature a sculpture garden, which will be curated with the help of Bonnie Clearwater, director and chief curator of NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale. “We are developing a building, but we also want to contribute to the cultural growth of the city,” Hanna said.
