NEW YORK (May 22, 2023) – Art Bodega Magazine will celebrate the launch of its tenth anniversary Issue with a special extended issue dedicated to the 50 Most Beautiful People in the Arts and Philanthropy.  The quarterly luxury chronicle of arts, society, and philanthropy will highlight influential philanthropists and society figures with a special 112-page anniversary edition featuring select photoshoots by renowned photographer Nigel Barker. Barker and Art Bodega Publisher Rebeca Herrero will reveal the issue next Monday, May 22, in New York at an exclusive launch party and anniversary celebration at FiveStory NY, with an afterparty to follow at Serafina.  

According to Rebeca Herrero, Publisher of Art Bodega Magazine, each of the 50 diverse personalities from the arts and charity circles profiled in the anniversary issue “have a particular talent that makes the world a better place.” The 50 Most Beautiful in the Arts and Philanthropy issue will offer five distinct cover designs including the Manhattan issue featuring renowned philanthropist Jean Shafiroff, the Beverly Hills issue featuring Kyle Richards of Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” the Hamptons issue featuring real estate developer Cagri Kanver, and the Palm Beach issue featuring equestrian and titled sponsor of USEF, Shereen Fuqua. A special national issue features cover art shot by Nigel Barker, featuring Miami philanthropist Ana Veiga Milton, CEO of One Sotheby’s Mayi de la Vega, “Real Housewives of Orange County” host and influencer Keni Silva, and Venita Aspen of “Southern Charm.” 

Reflecting on this milestone, Herrero also remarked: “I wanted to celebrate all the new places and the faces who are bringing fresh energy and growth to our cities after the pandemic with a series of on-location photoshoots in New York City, Miami, and Puerto Rico.”  

Other notables profiled within the glossy pages include beauty mogul Peter Thomas Roth, celebrity chef Todd English, and polo player Grant Ganzi. Members of the Allende Family, including actor Fernando Allende of “Mexican Dynasties,” are also featured, as are socialites and philanthropists Denise Rich, Wilnelia Merced Forsyth, Vivienne Ventura, philanthropist and Ritz Carlton hotelier Daissy Olarte de Kanavos, restauranteur Vittorio Assaf, and others. 

Art Bodega also worked with NYC photographer Andres Fernandez for the anniversary issues. Fernandez shot Kyle Richards’ cover and spreads at the NH Collection and Serafina Restaurant inside the luxury hotel NH Collection, part of the Minor Hotels Group.  The shoot featured luxury brands including Buccellati, Stephen Silver Jewelry, Nicole Rose Jewelry, clothing and shoe brands like Jimmy Choo, Zhivago, ITML (In the Mood for Love) and many others provided by Designer Revival, and FiveStory New York on 79th and Madison Avenue, amongst others.   

Herrero asserts that this special issue features some of the most beautiful photos ever to grace the journal’s pages. “Art Bodega Magazine was established as a forum for arts and culture that also artfully profiles the influential society figures and philanthropists who make an impact in those circles,” she says. “I’m proud that, ten years on, we have met and surpassed that mission and I look forward to sharing our special anniversary edition and many more issues of Art Bodega Magazine to come.”
