A Passion for Art and Each Other

A new Naples Design District gallery—led by a respected local art couple—aims to create a link between Miami’s contemporary art scene and the budding collector culture here.

Although 2020 was not an ideal year to launch a small business, Jennifer Correa and her husband, esteemed local artist Arturo Correa, officially opened Muzyka Art Space in the Naples Design District last summer. Their debut exhibition was an impressive who’s who of influential 20th-century Latin American artists: Steel raindrops sculpted by Carlos Medina hung from the ceiling, and paintings by late Venezuelan artists including Oswaldo Vigas and Feliciano Carvallo—personal heroes of Arturo’s—lined the walls. There were works of Arturo’s, too, including Anyone Listening Out There, the large-scale painting that still hangs behind Jennifer’s desk. “In this painting, Arturo imagines observing life from outer space,” Jennifer says, both as gallery director and her husband’s longtime manager. Abstract and political symbols appear to float alongside actual paintbrushes and toy airplanes on an expansive sky-blue canvas. The combination of painting and objects, a signature element of Arturo’s artistic language “make this a unique and very strong composition,” she adds. Located in the Naples Design District, Muzyka Art Space features the works of renowned artists, such as Francisco Narváez, Alirio Palacios and Oswaldo Vigas.
