FACUNDO Rum Collection Supports Latin American Art at Christie’s
On Monday, May 20, Christie’s in New York City held a lecture and cocktail reception on “The Art of Fernando Botero” with his son, Juan Carlos Botero, to celebrate the upcoming auction of Latin American Art.
The FACUNDO Rum Collection, a proud supporter of the Latin American arts, provided the libations for the evening as brand ambassador Robert Nieves served neat pours of FACUNDO EXQUISITO, a blend of dark rums aged between 7 and 23 years of age, as well as FACUNDO PARAISO, a dark rum aged between 23 and 25 years, preceding the lecture.
The lecture was dedicated to Juan Carlos Botero’s newly published work on his father, aptly titled “The Art of Fernando Botero.” The lecture was an unprecedented opportunity for guests to listen to, meet, and speak with the son of famous artist Fernando Botero, learning directly from Juan Carlos how his became the artistic icon we know today.
Shortly thereafter, at the cocktail reception held in the Christie’s galleries showcasing Latin American Art including the works of Fernando Botero, FACUNDO served EXIMO Manhattan cocktails and NEO Pom Daiquiris at the two bars to an intimate group of guests as they viewed the artwork.
The auction of Christie’s Latin American Art is taking place on May 22 and May 23 in person in New York, and online from May 18 through May 29.
