It’s that time of year again — and while much of the country takes its scarves and snow boots out of storage, Miami heats up for Miami Art Week. This year’s event takes place from Dec. 6 to 10, when Spectrum Miami and Red Dot Miami present “Two Fairs Under One Roof” at Mana Wynwood Convention Center, an easy walk from restaurants, clubs and boutiques.
“We’re pleased to return to Mana Wynwood for what we expect to be an exceptionally busy Miami Art Week,” said Eric Smith, president, Redwood Art Group. “Last year, we saw an attendance of more than 40,000 art enthusiasts and industry leaders, and we anticipate this year’s show to exceed that. Exhibitor space at both Spectrum Miami and Red Dot Miami has been in such high demand this year that we have been sold out since August, which is unprecedented. Attendees will enjoy the very best the fine art world and contemporary art industry has to offer, and we’re looking forward to welcoming everyone back to five days of eclectic art and discovery, with a couple of surprises in store.”
Spectrum Miami will showcase 200 galleries and both local and global artists, an art celebration augmented with curated programing, music, entertainment and special events. Red Dot Miami — a curated, gallery-only contemporary art fair — will feature more than 65 galleries representing an excess of 500 prominent artists. An Opening Night Preview on Dec. 6 kicks things off with hors d’oeuvres, musical entertainment and libations including Pommery Champagne.
After a stressful pre-holiday season and a busy work schedule, there was no better time for a relaxing spa experience than during my recent trip to Pasadena with the FXExpress Publications, Inc. team. We headed to The Langham Huntington, Pasadena for the 20th anniversary of the GT Tested Reader Survey awards, which meant a jam-packed trip, but I managed to carve a little time out of our busy schedule to visit Chuan Spa at the hotel.
You know what you’re going to get at an Aman hotel, and also you don’t. Expect peerless service, obsessive attention to detail, architectural elegance worthy of a fashion magazine, a holistic approach to wellness and astounding levels of comfort. But each property is also intimately connected to its setting, and that’s where the surprises lie. For instance, finding yourself on your knees on a sidewalk in Luang Prabang handing out sticky rice to Buddhist monks at 5:30 a.m. isn’t something we expected.
