An Art Happening
Today at 11:00 am, the doors of 2013 Art Basel in Miami Beach officially open, however, before the latest works from the world’s best artists could be revealed, a select group of VIPs gathered in the centrally located Collins Park for a welcome cocktail the evening before.
Mingling among a collection of sculptures, some of which included live models, the guests caught up on the latest art-world trends and what to look for in the coming week. As they plotted how to navigate the fair, mixologist Andres Leon prepared Absolut cocktails that could also only be described as artful. The fan favorite, Absolut Appearance, mixed the sweetness of pineapple with the bite of star anise, and a hint of green tea.
A perfect beginning to an exciting week, with many more moment to celebrate in the coming days.
