We are saddened by the passing of a very special member of the Adrienne Arsht Center family. Dolores Ziff was not only one of our Center’s major donors but also one of our most loyal patrons. Dolores had an indefatigable devotion to the arts and embraced the diversity of the Center’s programming. The passing of so great a woman will surely be felt throughout our entire community.
Her name is permanently engraved on our Donor Walls – and her spirit will live with us at the Center forever. The example she set will long continue to influence and inspire us.
This past January 18th, the Adrienne Arsht Center dedicated a performance by Joshua Bell in loving memory of Dolores and her surviving family: her beloved husband Sanford and the entire Ziff and Keator families. “Her boundless enthusiasm will be missed but she will always be with us in spirit,” remarked M. John Richard. Our thoughts and prayers are with them at this time. In addition, the Adrienne Arsht Center created a tribute page for the Sunday edition of The Miami Herald.
A memorial celebration of Dolores Ziff’s life was held at noon, Jan. 22, in The Church by the Sea in Bal Harbour. Dolores Ziff adored all flowers, especially peonies, but preferred donations be made to Camillus House in Miami.
