“Fountainhead is thrilled to benefit from a longstanding relationship with Pan American Projects and its outstanding roster of artists,” says Fountainhead co-founder and executive director Kathryn Mikesell. “As an organization focused on uplifting artists throughout their careers, we’re honored to be a part of an auction spanning generations of both renowned and emerging artists.”
- Kathryn Mikesell. President of Fountainhead Arts.
“It is both a pleasure and an honor for us at Pan American Art, who have been devoted to present parallels in the art from the Americas, to organize our next charity auction for the benefit of Kathryn Mikesell's Fountainhead Arts. They have done much to promote the visual arts, and have made Miami a destination for a great many talented young artists seeking to advance their education and careers. In this world of art which we have both chosen, I cannot think of a more worth-while activity than Kathryn's.”
- Robert Borlenghi. President of Pan American Art Projects.

ABOUT THE GALLERY
Pan American Art Projects was established in 2001 with the mission to exhibit and promote established and emerging artists from North, Central and South America, providing a context for dialogue between the various regions. We represent a strong roster of contemporary artists of the Americas and hold a collection of important works from Cuba, Argentina, the U.S. and the Caribbean. Our programming reflects these complementary arenas providing a comprehensive historical context for contemporary tendencies in the visual arts from these regions. We opened our gallery in Dallas in 2001, expanding to Miami in 2006 with the opening of our pioneering space in the Wynwood Arts District. In 2016 we moved our collection and gallery exhibition spaces to the Little River/Little Haiti arts district, where we produce exhibitions of our represented artists as well as historically framed collective exhibits mostly from our held collection.
Fountainhead’s mission is to elevate the voices, visibility and value of artists in our society and make their work accessible to a global community. Offering a year-round residency program, flexible and affordable artists’ studios, the Miami Dade County-wide open studios event Artists Open, and a series of career-focused programs, Fountainhead empowers artists to build thriving careers while cultivating and nurturing a community that supports them and their work. Harnessing the power in our diversity, Fountainhead is building a global family of artists and appreciators, one personal connection at a time. Learn more atwww.fountainheadarts.org.
