Robert Miller, co-founder of Duty Free Shoppers, is a long-time supporter of the arts in Hong Kong. In 2014 he and his wife, Chantal, made the largest gift ever for that purpose when they donated $12.9 million to support artists in the port city. Their gift to the Asia Society Hong Kong Center will be used to commission new works, underwrite performances, and maintain galleries. The Millers previously donated $3 million to restore an important Hong Kong theater.
