Miami Art Basel
I had an amazing time at Miami Art Basel coming to see my friend’s exhibitions and meeting the incredibly talented people presenting at the event.
Despite heavy rain, Art Basel in Miami Beach attracted about 77,000 visitors this year according to organizers of South Florida’s premier art fair. The event held at the Miami Beach Convention Center ran Thursday through Sunday. This year’s Basel saw everything from the sale of a $15 million Francis Bacon oil painting to a nonfatal stabbing in the heart of the fair itself.
Leonardo DiCaprio was treated to an early private VIP tour of Art Miami before the exclusive art fair opened to the public accompanied by Art Miami Fair Director/Partner Nick Korniloff and his wife Pamela Cohen. To give you an indication of the diversity of the fair, my friend’s exhibitions from Jewelry to wine, and paintings.
In Spite of the rain and storms this year we had the best ever attendance at Art Basel and I am already booked for next year.
