During the fantastic Art Basel week in Miami, IVY hosted an Art Basel cocktail reception at the outdoor, backyard garden of Miami Beach Tommy Hilfiger boutique, which featured a live painting exhibition by Jeremy Penn.

Penn’s an award winning New York-based artist whose talent was recognized by both MoMA and The Met. He was even named as an “Andy Warhol x Richard Phillips Hybrid” by Refinery29. Penn’s paintings often used celebrities and celebrity culture as the subject. One of the signatures of his work is to produce less polished look by searing the paintings with flames upon completion. At the IVY’s Art Basel cocktail reception, Penn did live painting to canvas where the finished piece was auctioned off. The proceeds were going toward to Autism Speaks, one of Tommy Hilfiger’s favorite charities.

As for the in-store activities, there were live DJ and pop-up stations for nail application, temporary tattoos and DIY buttons, featuring Tommy Hilfiger signature logos and graphics. Tommy Hilfiger also donated 25% of the evening’s sales, including Penn’s work, up to $10,000 to the Autism Speaks charity.
