Conrad Miami’s New Art and The City Package Features Exclusive Art Tours Curated by the City’s Leading Cultural Insiders
Luxury Hotel Partners with Miami’s Top Art Curators and Collectors to Connect Travelers to the City’s Best-Kept Art Secrets
MIAMI - Miami's reputation as an art destination has attracted global attention in recent years and now extends well beyond the celebrity-drenched frenzy of Art Basel week. To better meet the demand from its guests for more exclusive ways to authentically experience the local art scene booming throughout the city's cultural enclaves, Conrad Miami announced today its new seasonal guest package Art and The City by Conrad Miami (available for a limited time, from December 6 through March 1).
The hotel unveils its exclusive new partnership with two of Miami's most sought-after art influencers, who will customize an immersive day-long art excursion. Guests will be escorted by Conrad Miami's hand-picked art experts to experience private tours to galleries, visits to artists' studios, and insider access to view some of Miami's most coveted private collections - all from the comfort of a chauffeur-driven CadillacTM EscaladeTM. Art and The City features a two-night stay in the hotel's Bay View Suite, breakfast at Atrio Restaurant to jump-start your day, plus a glass of wine at the end of the day.
Conrad Miami has selected two of Miami's best-known art world visionaries to create customized art excursions exclusively for the hotel's guests, Ombretta Agrò Andruff and Kathryn Mikesell. Both will curate custom-designed day tours based on the guest's preferences and art interests, and the tours will also include off-the-beaten-path jaunts to timely art openings and private events happening during different periods of the year by these two connoisseurs who are in-the-know.
