Collections That Inspire

Inside the homes of two Miami art lovers

Whether decorating with a collection of living local artists or celebrating the contribution of African and African-American artists, the background of said artist can have a direct effect on the finished product.

Join Mansion Global as we tour the personal art collections of two Miami-based collectors: real estate mogul Vanessa Grout and high-profile lawyer Alan Kluger.
Alan Kluger, a Miami lawyer who has handled celebrity divorce cases, including former baseball star Alex Rodriguez, lives in a condo formerly inhabited by Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown. Mr. Kluger is the founder and managing partner of Kluger, Kaplan, Silverman, Katzen & Levine, P.L, as well as a grand founder of the University of Miami Sylvester Cancer Center.

He and his wife, retired judge Amy Dean, are shedding a portion of their Latin American collection to make room for African and African-American artists. Kluger says, “We were sitting on the balcony and she said, ‘Are you having fun collecting art?’ and I said, ‘No,’ and she said, ‘Me neither. What do we do next?’ and I said, ‘Give me a couple weeks.’”
