‘Made in Germany’: Museum revels in Rubell collection

By Ellen Fischer | Columnist Anna and Brady Roberts with Mera and Don Rubell. PHOTOS: DENISE RITCHIE
[email protected]

The latest offering atVero Beach Museum of
Art fills three of its exhibition spaces, the Stark
Rotunda and the Holmes and Titelman galler-
ies, with an impressive show the likes of which
has not been seen before in this city.

That is because “Made in Germany: Art
since 1980” was curated by VBMA director
Brady Roberts from the famous Rubell Fam-
ily Collection of Miami. Comprising mainly
paintings – several of them of ambitious size
– photographic print, and four sculptures, the
exhibition is a look at the art of Germany from
just before the fall of the Berlin wall to the first
decade of the present century. Because it is on
view through Jan. 6, 2019, there is no excuse for
not catching this exhibition.

When Roberts was chief curator at the
Milwaukee Museum of Art, he worked with
collectors Don and Mera Rubell to bring a
portion of their 7,500-piece collection to that
institution. The Rubells began collecting art
– specifically, cutting-edge works by emerg-
ing artists – in New York City in the 1960s.
Since 1993 they have shared exhibitions from
their vast holdings with the public in a large
building they own in Miami’s Wynwood busi-
ness district. Next year the couple will move
the collection from its present location to a 2

“Mirrors would do well to reflect a little more before sending back images.”
That is subtly clever. At the bridge table, hands with mirror distribution have the same AK762

there is no way to take a discard or score a ruff until the mirror is broken. K85
In this week’s deal, South had to overcome not only mirror distribution but also a bad
trump break. How did he make four spades after West led the heart king? Dealer: West; Vulnerable: East-West

West almost led his singleton, but rightly decided that since he probably had a natural The Bidding:
trump trick, he did not need to work for a ruff.
When the dummy came down, declarer noticed that the mirror distribution seemed 3 Spades 3 Hearts Pass Pass
to leave him with four unavoidable losers: one heart, one diamond and two clubs. Pass 4 Spades All Pass LEAD:
Then matters got worse. After winning the first trick with dummy’s heart ace, South K Hearts
led the spade jack (tempting East to cover if he had all three missing trumps) and was
unpleasantly surprised to see East throw a club (playing black on black).

Now declarer had only one chance: To find West with 3-7-2-1 distribution. South drew
two rounds of trumps, took his minor-suit winners, then led the heart jack. West won,
cashed the spade queen and, perforce, played a heart. Declarer discarded a diamond
from dummy and a club from hand. Then, on the next heart, he ruffed on the board and
pitched his last club. He crossruffed the last three tricks and lost only two hearts and one
spade. Well envisioned.
