In anticipation of the New Art Dealers Alliance (NADA) Art Fair Miami Beach 2010, guests gathered at Canyon Ranch Living – Miami Beach on Sunday, Oct. 24, to celebrate the property’s partnership with the New Art Dealers Alliance. A pool party in the newly completed North Tower was highlighted by a performance and video installation by Psychic Youth, the performance art troupe headed by Federico Nessi. Overlooking the glistening Atlantic, guests enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres on the terrace as well as a deejay set by Nektar De Stagni.
Hosted by art personalities from around the country, including Heather Hubbs, Megan Reilly, Anthony Spinello, Nick Lobo, Manny Prieres, Erin Newberg, Bert Rodriguez, Grela Orihuela, Katia Rosenthal and Peter Davis, the midday event at the nation’s first luxury wellness hotel and residential community welcomed NADA to the neighborhood with a taste of the art furor to come. The NADA Art Fair Miami Beach 2010, taking place Dec. 2-5, will feature the world’s top emerging artists and cutting-edge art galleries. Collectors, gallerists, artists and fair-goers are encouraged to experience life-enhancing properties at Canyon Ranch Living, the leading name in the evolution of wellness lifestyle, just steps away from the NADA Art Fair.
“We are really excited about our sponsorship agreement with Canyon Ranch-Living Miami Beach. The property is expansive and offers an enhanced experience to both our exhibitors and collectors” Heather Hubbs, NADA director, says. “Canyon Ranch’s enthusiasm and support underscore the clear success of our move to Miami Beach. As neighbors, it’s a natural partnership.”
