Preceding the world-renowned art festival Art Basel, Miami Jewish Health, South Florida’s largest nonprofit care center, is hosting its own.
MJ Basel is Miami Jewish Health’s fifth annual art exhibition, in which residents and staff showcase their works of art alongside pieces done by some of South Florida’s best local artists. Members of the South Florida community are invited to enjoy food, drinks and live music while experiencing the talents of our residents and other members of the community.
Art is not only a form of self-expression and storytelling, but it also acts as a form of therapy. Miami Jewish Health residents take part in art classes each day, and some who suffer from Alzheimer’s and dementia use art as a form of relaxation therapy. In an effort to support these classes, 20% of all art sales at MJ Basel go directly to Miami Jewish Health’s art programs.
Local South Florida artists participating include Serge Toussaint, Erika King and more.
