Amar’e Stoudemire and artist Daniel Arsham host Miami “In The Paint Series” event with Whitewall Magazine
Miami Heat Power Forward, Amar’e Stoudemire spoke out at Art Basel earlier this year, about his progressive art collection. Stoudemire, says that his goal is to become “ a legit and serious [art] collector”.
He made moves towards that goal earlier this week by co-hosting an event with artist Daniel Arsham in Miami – “In The Paint Series” in collaboration with Whitewall Magazine. The festival, held at the Ritz Carlton Residences Miami Beach, was to benefit The Amar’e Stoudemire Foundation.
Guests participated in a live interactive art installation by artist Tatiana Blanco and enjoyed special hors d’oeuvres and Perrier-Jouët champagne. At the close of the evening, Stoudemire and Arsham announced their plans for future collaborations.
Among attendees were Matthew Chevallard of Del Toro, George Bramford of Bramford Watch Dept., Whitewall Magazine’s Michael Klug, and Ritz Carlton Residences Miami Beach developer Ophir Sternberg.
Arsham’s work has been shown at PS1 in New York, The Museum of Contemporary Art in Miami, The Athens Bienniale in Athens, Greece, The New Museum In New York, Mills College Art Museum in Oakland, California and Carré d’Art de Nîmes, France among others.
