Art lovers and collectors were excited to attend the 17th edition of Red Dot Miami, a curated contemporary art fair held annually during Miami Art Week. This year’s five-day fair ran from Opening Night on November 30 through Sunday, December 4, with exhibitors from 22 countries showcasing works from hundreds of artists across the globe. 

Fair Highlights

Stepping into the Lobby, guests were greeted by the Elephant Parade, baby elephant sculptures created by Katy Perry, Khloe Kardasian, and Brandon Thomas.  The Elephant Parade is an international organization raising awareness for the endangered Asian elephant with the world’s largest exhibition of hand-painted elephant statues. It was a wonderful welcome for Red Dot Miami 2022! The lively tunes of Miami’s favorite DJ, Joey Paradis got collectors in the mood while they checked out their favorite booths.
  • They checked out The African Spirit, by artist and designer Andre Croteau,  a pop art-inspired metaphor for the cultural colonization of Africa in K-Art Projects USA‘s Booth 200. Drawn in by the piece’s unique texture and  overall sculptural rhythm, the work symbolizes the ebb and flow of the overall global cultural process.
  • The Good Dog / Bad Dog Collection by Jackie Fuchs at Art Love Gallery, Booth 208, had people stopping and chuckling for a second and third look. And they had all found new homes by the end of the fair.
  • Once again Kris and Angela Gebhardt showcased their newest works in the  Gebhardt Gallery Booth 401 with Awaken the Soul being placed on Opening Night, among other pieces sold.
  • Strolling the aisles and finding that perfect piece of art was made all the better while sipping a glass of Pommery Champagne!

There was so much more — take a look at the videos that capture the magic or our photo albums and you’ll see what we mean!
