The Sagamore Hotel’s 16th Annual Art Basel Brunch on December 9th, 9am-1pm, will feature an inspiring program of live music, art and culture.

Participants will enjoy an amazing brunch, a joint dance interlude from Cuban Classical Ballet of Miami and Grace Arts, FL and a performance by Nu Deco, South Florida’s leader in genre-bending musical exploration. An incredible line up of the work of famous street artists/Legends of Urban street art will also be on full display throughout the famed hotel know as “Miami’s Art hub.” The Sagamore Hotel is located at 1671 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach.

“We are excited to participate in this year’s Art Basel Brunch at the Sagamore said Clare Vickery, President of Grace Arts FL. We are equally thrilled to have developed a relationship with the Hispanic Cultural Arts Center over the past years — and to have sponsored Isanusi Garcia Rodriguez and other Cuban and American artists. This will be a fun and culturally significant event!”

Vickery said that in addition to the Sagamore Brunch program, the following day, Sunday December 10th, Grace Arts will feature a program hosted at Fort Lauderdale’s Muse Arts Center featuring Isanusi Garcia Rodriguez and some of the dancers from the Sagamore performance, with female-owned dance companies, Agatha Wright and Niurca Marquez, and a special guest appearance and monologue by Playwright, Actor and Director, Ean Miles Kessler, who’s working with Vickery on the newest chapter of a Shakespeare adaptation featuring ballet, hip hop, electrifying street art infused with Florida’s ancient colonial history.

A week earlier, December 1, a powerful mural by acclaimed Argentine Artist, Martin Ron, ‘Releve,’ was unveiled at the Hispanic Cultural Arts Center completed and underwritten as part of Project COAT in November 2017 (connecting international street artists to the coastal urban areas of Florida)

The new COAT mural located in the historic neighborhood of Spring Garden Vickery said, will engage a new generation of visitors and supporters of the Center’s prolific arts programming.

“A new wall has been erected along the property line to enclose the courtyard and parking area as a urban stage. And it will feature a nearby sculpture and new murals, creating a backdrop to the many international dance companies that perform there,” Vickery said.

COAT started as a response to areas at the periphery of high rise development. Many homeowners, commercial and industrial property owners want their properties to become new opportunities for creative professionals, small boutiques, and tech offices to create sustainable safe neighborhoods and a more secure future. ArtRepublic of Jacksonville and Project COAT continue to plan collaboratively for 2018–2019 tours in Florida and New York.
