Ruinart in 10 Works, Champagne as Benefactor, Art Basel/ Miami, Opens Dec.2

Artists need benefactors.

10 American Artists were commissioned to interpret Ruinart Champagne for an event during Art Basel/ Miami.


The show will Pop Up at The Betsy Hotel in South Beach. Opening party is on December 2 but it seems that opening day is December 1st, 2010.

All proceeds from the sale of these 'sponsored' works of art will go to charity.

Melissa Ayr created Be Ruinart (below) and notes that the Pop Up Event will be on until February 28, 2011.


I wonder if any of the 10 artists created something provocative or playful on this 'Ruinart' theme.

The Betsy hosts a number of other events during Art Basel/ Miami including photos taken by Richard Bluestein for his book Distressed Beauty on Havana, Cuba...
