THE SAGAMORE HOTEL FINALIZED ART WEEK 2018 WITH AN ICONIC BRUNCH INSPIRED BY ART, FASHION, AND MUSIC.
The Sagamore Hotel once again closed out Art Week with the 17th annual Iconic Sagamore Brunch on Saturday, December 8th. The private, invitation-only affair was attended by over 1,500 guests on the hotel’s newly renovated patio and sculpture garden and included two live performances by The Chophouse Band led by rock legend and Grammy Award winning artist Jason Newsted. The event included a contemporary ballet presentation by Grace Arts and the Cuban Classical Ballet with live acoustic interpretive guitar melodies by Cuban musician Alberto Puerto. Guests who attended the event observed live painting by Noty Aroz and PIMAX, in addition to the immersive experiences that The Sagamore’s visionary resident art advisor, Sebastien Laboureau, curated for Art Week. Highlights included Newsted’s solo show in the lobby, FRAME, and the incubator of art and immersion and sculptures by Australian artists, Gillie and Marc, presented by expertisez.com and appraise-art.com. The event also included a large butterfly sculpture by celebrated artist Ruben Robierb, which was a popular photo spot for attendees.
