Upcoming Events

62nd Annual Vizcaya Ball "East Meets West"

Benefit/Fundraiser
This year, Vizcaya Ball organizers pave the “silk road” for philanthropists and attendees to explore the Eastern influences of the historic estate during the upcoming 62nd Annual Vizcaya Ball. To the naked eye, the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens design was decidedly Italian but woven into its tapestry are influences and inspiration that came from well beyond Europe and reached further east. Examples can be found in the water channels in the Fountain Garden, reminiscent of Moghul garden design in Rajasthan; life-size sculpted peacocks in the Marine Garden symbolizing India; the O-bridge in the same garden inspired by similar bridges in China and Japan; and the Casba, the tiled, domed folly making playful reference to the Middle East. The decor in the Breakfast room and the Cathay guest bedroom in the Main House most aptly illustrates Chinoiserie, the style based on European interpretation of Chinese and Asian art and décor. These influences will be celebrated as funds are raised for the continued preservation of the National Historic Landmark on Saturday, November 17, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. presented by Chopard and fashions by renowned designer Naeem Khan. Music is provided by the Danny Beck Band and fireworks display by Add Fire of Miami. To purchase tickets or a table for Vizcaya’s Ball, “East Meets West,” visit www.vizcayaball.org.
