Experienced the heat of Miami's art and tech scene this past week at Art Basel, and other fairs including Context, Art Miami, Red Dot, Spectrum and more.
Most exciting was the sculpture, Frozen with Desire, by artist Brendan Murphy, meant to signify continual space exploration and infinity. Encrusted by 6,000 diamonds and priced at $13.5 million, it was on exhibit at an epic party co-hosted by Lonestar Capital.
Glad to see artists from Indianapolis and galleries from Cincinnati (see photo below of ADCFineArt owner Litsa Spanos and team) make an appearance at these over-the-top, bustling fairs.
Also checked out NFTs and Web3 content at the Decentral forum in Miami downtown.
Adds up to more evidence of #SiliconHeartland innovation spreading nationwide.
Next up: Austin for SXSW, March 11, where I'm launching my new book. Can't wait!
