5 Can’t-miss Experiences at Red Dot Miami
From the Opening Night Preview Party to Meet the Artist events to Art After Dark, there’s something for the serious collector, glitterati, and the partier at Red Dot Miami. Here are five experiences you won’t want to miss.
1. Opening Night Preview Party
Be one of the first to check out the latest paintings, photography, sculpture, glassworks, and more from 6 to 10 p.m. at Wednesday’s Opening Night Preview Party. Sip a glass of Louis Jadot wine, indulge in tasty hors d’oeuvres, and enjoy an exclusive look at the array of art while mingling with the artists and fellow attendees. Plus, you’ll get first dibs on which pieces of world-class art you want to take home with you. Exhibitors will be offering everything from a rare original Fernando Botero, offered from a private collection for the first time, to works from Banksy, Wesselmann, Mr. Brainwash, Chihuly, Warhol, Dali, Picasso, Chagall, Durer, Lichtenstein, and more.
2. Art Labs
Red Dot Miami features Art Labs, specially curated programming that provides a dynamic experience for attendees and allows them to interact with site-specific works by top international artists. Contemplate your role in the world by engaging with James West’s monumental, contemporary outdoor sculpture, Our Path, and experience the empowering message of A Walk in the Clouds: Each of us is connected to the other through our body, mind, and spirit.
