The world's premier art shows
Art Basel in Miami Beach, 5 – 8 December 2013
2013 marks the twelfth edition of Art Basel Miami Beach, one of the most prestigious art shows in the world. UBS has been the proud lead partner since its inception in 2002.
Over the past 12 years, Art Basel Miami Beach has developed into an important art show with groundbreaking and visionary programs. More than 250 galleries from North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia and Africa exhibit works by more than 2,000 artists each year.
In the community
As a firm, we believe that the lasting success of our company and our community depends on our dedication to corporate citizenship. Through grants, charitable contributions and volunteer initiatives, UBS continues to strengthen its relationships with nonprofit partners in our local communities. In addition to our corporate philanthropic efforts, we are committed to supporting the organizations important to our employees, who volunteer their time and talent to a wide array of non profits. UBS Americas employees volunteered over 35,000 hours of community service to educational, civic and social service organizations last year.
At UBS, our philanthropic focus is centered on education. The firm partners with hundreds of nonprofits globally that aim to provide educational resources and better learning environments for children in order to increase their chances for a successful future.
We strive to ensure that the support we give has a meaningful impact on those around us. This past summer, UBS partnered with Arts for Learning in Miami to support “ArtWorks,” a paid internship pilot program for the arts for high school students who live in the surrounding neighborhoods of Miami’s Wynwood Arts District. “ArtWorks” was designed to engage students in the art-making process while providing meaningful employment as they developed an understanding and appreciation of the arts.
This year during Art Basel in Miami Beach, students who took part in “Artworks” will participate in an arts-related workshop hosted by UBS and inspired by Kiki Smith’s Chorus, which is part of the UBS Art Collection. The students will have the chance to learn about the history and process of making stained glass, followed by an interactive activity during which they will get the chance to create their own stained glass work of art.
