Art With A Heart Benefit Auction to Support The Perry J. Cohen Foundation
The Arts are at the Heart of The Perry J. Cohen Foundation, a non-for-profit 501(c)(3), named after Perry J. Cohen, the son of Pamela Cohen and step-son of Nicholas Korniloff, the leading team behind the Art Miami Group of Fairs.
Perry, at age 14, went missing at sea on July 24, 2015. The United States Coast Guard conducted one of the largest Search and Rescue missions in recent history to find Perry and his friend. After an exhaustive eight-day search, the USCG suspended their efforts.
The Perry J. Cohen Foundation was created to carry on Perry’s legacy and support his passions. Proceeds raised from this auction will directly fund PJCF, devoted to the advancement of: The Arts, Environmental, Marine & Wildlife Education and Preservation, Teenage Entrepreneurship + Boating Safety Education. In addition, the auction will specifically fund and enhance the Perry J. Cohen Memorial Endowment Fund at the University of Miami Rosensteil School of Marine and Atmospheric Science.
The Global Arts Community has supported PJCF since the very early days of Perry’s disappearance. Many art dealers and artists that knew Perry kindly donated their time and artworks to support this auction. We invite you to bid on works of art by artists such as Wolf Kahn, Peter Tunney, and Leo Villareal.
