ArtReview – Great Collectors and Their Ideas: No. 3
Martin Margulies Interviewed by Joshua Mack
One of a handful of world-class collectors in Miami, developer and philanthropist Martin Margulies has shaped the cultural and built fabric of South Florida since he began building and buying in the 1970s. His art holdings which number over 4,500 works and are particularly rich in photography and large-scale sculpture, are the basis of rotating exhibitions at a warehouse space that opened to the public in 1999 and has offered educational programs since 20043. Admission fees benefit Lotus House, a shelter and advocacy group for homeless women and children for which Margulies recently purchased a building to house at-risk teenagers.
