Join the National Hotel for Elisabetta Fantoneâ€™s Art Basel Takeover, taking place from Dec. 7-Dec. 10. Festivities kick off on Dec. 7 with a public cocktail party from 8 p.m. to midnight. She will reveal her latest pop art collection and meet-and-greet attendees to talk about the new release of her second watch made in collaboration with Swiss high-end luxury watch manufacturer CORUM. Additionally, attendees will enjoy one-of-a-kind art display, pop-up retail shop with limited edition items in the hotelâ€™s Martini Room, live entertainment indoors by the cast of LIVE!, poolside beats by a celebrity DJ, signature Art Basel cocktails, and bites from Tamaraâ€™s Bistro. To complete Art Basel week, Fantoneâ€™s finale will include a pool party on Saturday, December 9th, and closing party brunch at Tamaraâ€™s Bistro on Sunday, December 10th from 12-3 p.m.
A variety of art pieces and installations will consume the propertyâ€™s walls and floors. The hotelâ€™s Art Deco entrance will be wrapped with Fantoneâ€™s prints, the lobby will be stamped with her signature artwork, and one of the hotelâ€™s Luxury Cabana Suites will be redecorated with her pop art murals featuring Salvador Dali. Projections of her art will light the front and back of the hotel and colorful murals featuring celebrity Jack Nicholson will complement the poolside outdoor dining terrace. Her art will make a splash inside the hotelâ€™s pool, recognized as Miami Beachâ€™s longest infinity-edge pool. Poolside panels will feature floral mug shots of rock legends such as Mick Jagger and Jimi Hendrix.
