Miami, FL – Yesterday, The Cultivist and it’s artist ambassadors hosted the Second Annual Artist Lunch at The Setai for its members. Following the success from last year’s affair, the event brought together members, international artists and curators The Cultivist has worked with since its inception. This year, the event was presented by iconic champagne house Perrier-Jouët, which has a long-standing commitment to the arts.
The lunch provided a rare opportunity for Cultivist members to take a break from the hectic environment of Miami Art Week and enjoy a peaceful meal on the beach with acclaimed artists, curators, gallerists, collectors, and other art enthusiasts. Attendees included leading international visionaries in the cultural sector, spanning art, music, fashion and business.
