Miami Beach’s historic Art Deco hotel, The Sagamore Hotel, known for its rotating experiences of museum-quality art year-round, presents an immersive experience of ambitious and innovative art programs coordinated by Sebastien Laboureau, resident art advisor of the Sagamore Hotel. Guests will be immersed in a unique and innovative art experience, throughout the entire hotel. The Sagamore Hotel is one of the only venues in Miami Beach where guests can experience museum-quality art for free and open 24/7 to the general public.
This year, #SagamoreIsArt presents an immersive solo show by Jason Newsted, the former bassist of Metallica. Other highlights include the Miami edition of FRAME, an incubator of art experiences, sculptures in the hotel’s newly-renovated garden by Gillie and Marc Schattner and digital art by REO presented by ART REPUBLIC. Additionally, PIMAX, an urban artist known for denouncing the vices of modern society through his art, will showcase a mural wall focused on history, reproducing works by Van Gough, Picasso and Warhol.
