Bernice Steinbaum – The Bernice Steinbaum Gallery first opened its doors in New York City in 1977. Considered a pioneer for galleries showcasing women artists and artists of color the gallery remained in New York City for 23 years. The Bernice Steinbaum Gallery moved the center of its operations to Miami, Florida in the year 2000. The gallery boasts representing two Macarthur â€œGeniusâ€ award winner; Pepon Osorio, and Deborah Willis, five Guggenheim, multiple National Endowment Winners, two Annenberg fellows, among other awards. In addition the gallery regularly organizes group shows which travel to various museum facilities, an unusual activity for a gallery which occurs primarily because of the directorâ€™s own academic art history background. The global climate of today prompts the gallery to be a microcosm of this multi-cultural, visual environment. www.bernicesteinbaumgallery.com
