The Bass Museum of Art in Miami Beach, Florida, has received a donation of $500,000 from philanthropists Riccardo and Tatyana Silva. This gift supports the institution’s endowment fund. In recognition of the donors, the museum will name a gallery on its first floor the Riccardo and Tatyana Silva Gallery. The gift was announced at the Bass Ball on December 16, which raised money for the institution’s programming.
“We are so grateful to Tatyana and Riccardo for this pivotal and very generous gift,” said George Lindemann, president of the museum’s board of directors. “They understand the important role art and culture play in our community. Their generous donation, following our recent reopening, will make all the difference as we embark on this exciting new chapter.”
Riccardo Silva is the owner of Silva International Investments, which manages and invests in assets across multiple sectors, including media, technology, entertainment, sports, real estate, and the arts. Tatyana Silva has served on the Bass Board of Directors since 2016. The Miami-based couple has a growing collection of modern and contemporary art as well as Italian works from the Novecento movement.
