     MIAMI, FL (January, 2010) – Miami’s philanthropic power players recently gathered for the annual An Affair of the Arts Performance and Gala, in support of YoungArts, the core program of the National Foundation for Advancement in the Arts (NFAA). The event brought together the nation’s finest young artists, the patrons who support them and a cache of celebrities at the Gusman Center for the Performing Arts and the Alfred I. Dupont Building. The theme of this year’s gala was Downtown Deco. SunTrust Bank was the Title Presenting Sponsor and chairing the event were prominent Miami arts philanthropists Mary and Howard Frank.

The party began with a dazzling performance at the Gusman Center by select YoungArts Alumni including famed dancer and choreographer Desmond Richardson. Richardson was a 1986 YoungArts winner in Modern Dance and a Presidential Scholar in the Arts. He has been hailed by the New York Times as one of the greatest dancers and choreographers of our time, and his performance proved this to be true. Following the performance was a cocktail reception, wine and cruise silent auction, and a drawing featuring a dazzling variety of luxury items and experiences. During the reception, guests were surrounded by vignettes with incredible performances by the 2010 YoungArts finalists.

The South Ballroom of the DuPont Building was transformed into an oasis of brown and white linens with a touch of 40's glamour from an abundance of palm fronds and orchid.
Chef David Schwadron Catering & Event Design provided the décor and delicious dinner. A special tribute to
Desmond Richardson, recipient of the YoungArts Alumni Award and distinguished Actress and Director Liv Ullmann, the recipient of this year’s prestigious Arison Award was
the highlight of the evening. YoungArts also honored the
John S. and James L. Knight Foundation
and its President and CEO Alberto Ibargüen for their distinguished leadership and unwavering commitment to supporting
the arts.

Notable guests also included Mikhail Baryshnikov,
Teddy Reily, Stanford Ziff and Lin and Sarah Arison.

Funds raised will go to support the YoungArts programming on both a regional and national level.
