VIDEO: Opening night at Art Miami and Context
Tuesday of Miami Art Week featured the much anticipated VIP opening of Art Miami and Context. The fairs span over two vast tents in Midtown Miami and are connected by a central courtyard.
For the second year in a row, the opening night benefited Perez Art Museum Miami (PAMM). Representing PAMM were museum director Thom Collins and philanthropists Jorge and Darlene Perez. With the museum’s opening taking place throughout the week, Collins remarked that Art Miami would most likely be the only fair that he would attend.
