The Bass museum in Miami has received a $500,000 donation from Riccardo and Tatyana Silva. In recognition of the gift, the Bass, which reopened this past October following a renovation, has named a gallery on its first floor the Riccardo and Tatyana Silva Gallery.

The Silvas have supported the Bass in recent years, with Tatyana having served on the museum’s board of directors since 2016. (Riccardo is the co-owner of the soccer team Miami FC.) The Miami-based couple is known for their collection of Italian modern and contemporary art, which places a special emphasis Novecento work.

George Lindemann, the president of the board of directors of the Bass, said in a statement, “We are so grateful to Tatyana and Riccardo for this pivotal and very generous gift. They understand the important role art and culture play in our community. Their generous donation, following our recent reopening, will make all the difference as we embark on this exciting new chapter.”
