Locust Projects celebrated its 20th Anniversary with an alfresco benefit dinner overlooking the bay at The Standard Spa, Miami Beach. The evening honored founding and current board chairs, Dennis and Debra Scholl, and artist founders Elizabeth Withstandley, Westen Charles, and COOPER (in absentia). Co-chaired by Munisha Underhill and John Joseph Lin, the sold-out event for 150 guests included Miami’s top artists, arts leaders, collectors and patrons including Rosa de la Cruz, Sylvia and Alfredo Cubiñá, Nick Korniloffand, Pamela Cohen, Diane and Alan Lieberman, Ilona Oppenheim, Vivian Pfeiffer, Stefanie and Evan Reed, Victoria Rogers, Jessica and Franklin Sirmans, and Alexa Wolman, to name a few. The evening kicked off with cocktails and music by Rhythm Foundation DJs in the Lido Lounge followed by celebratory remarks and the presentation of Locust’s’ 20th Anniversary Retrospective publication by Tra Publishing. As guests made their way to dinner on the dock by the bay, they stopped by the pool to watch the premiere of a synchronized swimming performance by Monica Lopez de Victoria.
