Did you get a chance to attend Art Basel 2015? This year, the attendance was larger, the art was bolder, and it managed to draw some notable names. Movie star and art aficionado Leonardo DiCaprio was reportedly spotted at the event and so were celebrities like baseball player Alex Rodriguez and actor Sylvester Stallone, a former Miami resident. At the Z Ocean Hotel South Beach, the Art Basel festivities drew a large, eclectic crowd to the Breezeway Lounge located on the hotel lobby; let’s take a look at some of the highlights.
At the exclusive RSVP-only media event held on December 4th, the Los Angeles-based Soho Design House set up a stunning showcase of intricately hand-woven contemporary rugs and also debuted street artist Tristan Eaton’s “Audrey”, a vivid portrait painting depicting late actress Audrey Hepburn in a variety of unique patterns, designs and text. As guests admired the artwork throughout the evening, there was also a unique opportunity to snap a picture with the pair of “mermaids” swimming in the hotel’s glass-bottom pool.
The event was complemented by fantastic music by DJ Mike Deleasa and a delectable selection of hors d’oeuvres from the Front Porch Cafe, including rapper Jay-Z’s D’Ussé cognac cocktails. Overall, the night proved to be a fun, enriching, and successful event for our hotel guests and attendees.
