The New One CIFO Project in Miami Beach

A Partnership between One Sotheby’s International Realty and Cisneros Fontanals Art Foundation (CIFO)
February 2012.

One Sotheby’s International Realty, the leading luxury real estate firm throughout South Florida, is pleased to announce ONE CIFO Project, a groundbreaking fundraising partnership with the Cisneros Fontanals Art Foundation (CIFO). Their combined efforts raise funds the foundation, to further its mission to support emerging and mid-career artists from Latin America.

One Sotheby’s International Realty launches the initiative at its new 6,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art branch in Miami Beach’s South of Fifth neighborhood. In a unique allotment of space, 2,000 square feet is dedicated to a walk-in exhibition space displaying works by contemporary artists from Latin America that is available for purchase.  All proceeds will benefit the artists contributing to this initiative as well as CIFO’s Endowment Fund, which was created to ensure the perpetuity and continuity of the foundation’s mission and accompanying programs. The actual exhibit showcases artists Emilia Azcárate, Amalia Caputo, Eugenio Espinoza, Glexis Novoa and Jorge Pedro Nuñez. To date the ONE CIFO project has sold over $15,000 in artwork.

“I have always had a passion and strong connection with art,” says Mayi de La Vega, founder and owner of ONE Sotheby’s International Realty. “Together, Ella Cisneros and I will provide Latin American artists a unique opportunity to showcase their artwork and raise money for CIFO.”

“Partnering with ONE Sotheby’s International Realty to help generate funds for the organization is extraordinary,” says CIFO founder Ella Fontanals-Cisneros. “We are thrilled to have such an unusual yet well- suited platform for the public not only to learn about what we do at CIFO but art in general.”
