Last weekend in Miami, The Sagamore welcomed over 1,500 guests to its annual brunch—an iconic end to the busy art week. Hosted within the historic hotel’s newly renovated patio and sculpture garden among dozens of contemporary works, the invitation-only brunch was inspired by varying facets of art, fashion, and music.
Upon arrival, visitors were welcomed to musician-artist Jason Newsted’s solo show in the lobby, and “FRAME,” an incubator of art and sculptures by Australian artists Gillie and Marc. In the backyard, visitors mingled and enjoyed mimosas, sips of champagne, and gin and tonic cocktails by Fords Gin and East Imperial, Smeraldina artisan water, along with decadent bites like specialty macaroons, freshly-baked pastries, and truffles by Bon Chocolatier.
To celebrate, The Chophouse Band—led by Grammy Award-winning artist Newsted, the previous bassist for Metallica—performed an unforgettable set. Visitors were also treated to a contemporary ballet presentation by Grace Arts and the Cuban Classical Ballet, featuring guitar melodies by Cuban musician Alberto Puerto.
Amid the immersive art installations, curated by resident art advisor Sebastien Laboureau, guests stopped for photos with the large butterfly sculpture by Rubem Robierb and enjoyed a live painting by Noty Aroz and PIMAX.
With special thanks to its long list of partners—BNY Mellon Wealth Management, Chubb, The Pronomic Wealth Management Group and the Wells Fargo Private Bank, FRAME, Miami Fashion Week, Miami New World Symphony, ART REPUBLIC, Perez Art Museum, and Grace Arts and Cuban Classical Ballet—the brunch was an epic success.
