“Salute to Magic City’s Cultural Champions” Art Basel Kick-Off

Art Basel Week 2014 kicked off in fashion with “Salute to Magic City’s Cultural Champions” Reception and Luncheon at the beautiful Conrad Miami’s Atrio Restaurant & Wine Room with the host committee of Dr. Carol Damian, Lilia Garcia, Virginia Miller, George T. Neary, Dennis Scholl, and Monty Trainer.

Tropical signature cocktails along with tasty bites were enjoyed as guest mixed and mingled during the reception. Paintings by Columbian renowned artist Francisco Ceron in collaboration with Nina Torres Fine Art Gallery graced the walls of the Atrio Restaurant & Wine Room. Flat-screen TVs live-streamed artist Francisco Ceron at work creating a masterpiece and a simultaneous live-cast of popular Miami Chef Brandel creating scrumptious dishes that were pieces of artwork of their own, served to those invited. These creatively prepared dishes included salmon smoked in a jar, grilled kimchi swordfish with mashed potatoes, and an elegantly and artistically designed fruit salad. Last but not least to mention, Conrad Miami’s entire staff were the most delightful.
