Each fall, art aficionados Dennis and Debra Scholl kick off the Miami art season by inviting a curator to Miami to hang an exhibition. The twist? They offer up their own home as a blank canvas, and the curator is given access to every work in the Scholls’  incredible contemporary art collection. This uniquely challenging and exciting opportunity began because the couple wanted “a way of having the collection hung in a professional manner,” as Dennis Scholl told PlumTV.
This year, they chose the Nasher Museum’s own Trevor Schoonmaker, curator of contemporary art.
Trevor aimed to develop “a thematic focus in a specific room with artists that are somewhat disparate,” he told PlumTV. This allowed Trevor to create distinctly individual rooms that complement one another–and that the Scholls can still feel comfortable living in.
