Amerant Art Program

Building on a 40-year legacy of supporting the arts, Amerant has launched an art initiative showcasing a series of art exhibitions in its corporate spaces. Rotating three times a year, Amerant is proud to open its doors to the abundance of talent South Florida-based artists have to offer.

The Amerant Art exhibitions are curated by Espacio Visible, which is led by Adriana Gómez and Anilu Gómez, two of the area’s most respected art consultants.

The first rotation will run from October 2019 through January 2020 and will feature 10 South Florida-based artists.
