The Grand Entrance of Spectrum Miami and Red Dot Miami provided a breathtaking backdrop, with an unforgettable display of nature’s most wondrous creations. Curated by Noor Blazekovic of Irreversible Projects, with the support of Jane Hart of Lemon Sky Projects and Neil Gold of Galleria Farms, “A Walk in the Clouds” is an elaborate sensory experience, featuring approximately 2000 freshly cut flowers of multiple colors that form a circular arena-like structure – each suspended from the ceiling, allowing guests to be completely immersed in blossoming beauty.
The corridors of the only multi-show format in contemporary fine art and upscale urban satellite shows were shoulder-to-shoulder as attendees clamored to see notable works of art being exhibited by recognized artists including a rare and original Fernando Botero, offered from a private collection for the first time, as well as works from Banksy, Wesselmann, a rare Mr. Brainwash, Chihuly, Dali, Picasso, Chagall, Durer, Lichtenstein, and highly collectible works from De La Nuez, Suchta, M&M (Marc & Matt), and more.
