Premier leader in South Florida’s real estate market to host the eleventh annual Opening Night Preview Party and Official Ribbon Cutting Ceremony
Adding to the eclectic group of cultural and lifestyle partners that now form a formidable coalition with two of Miami Art Week’s longest running fairs, is one of South Florida’s leading real estate pioneers, representing excellence in the luxury arena and a complementary strategic alliance during the biggest week on the art world’s calendar.
Redwood Media Group, the nation’s leader in exhibition production, media and marketing for the global fine art community, announces an exclusive Luxury Lifestyle Partnership between its premier South Florida shows – Spectrum Miami and Red Dot Miami, and one of the region’s leading real estate organizations,CERVERA Real Estate. This strategic alliance marks the first affiliation by Cervera with a major art show during Miami Art Week, resulting in unlimited access for the company’s high net worth clientele and property owners who view today’s contemporary art market as an attractive investment. Cervera Real Estate will be the exclusive sponsor of the Opening Night Preview Party for Spectrum Miami and Red Dot Miami, taking place on Wednesday, December 6th, starting at 6:00 p.m. To commemorate the opening of the fairs, Cervera’s CEO, Veronica Cervera Goeseke, and Managing Partner, Alicia Cervera Lamadrid, will join Redwood Media Group CEO, Eric Smith, for the prestigious ribbon cutting ceremony that will mark the show’s 11th year in Miami. Guests of Cervera will join international art aficionados from across the globe for an evening of cocktails and a first look at this year’s exhibitors.
Taking place December 6—10 during Miami Art Week, Spectrum Miami and Red Dot Miami are established as sister art shows, occupying a purpose-built exhibition space on NE 2nd Avenue in Miami’s Arts and Entertainment District for the past two years. Over the last decade, both shows have grown to become the ultimate destination for the fine art industry professional and contemporary art enthusiast who collectively seek a more accessible experience with exhibits showcasing the world’s most progressive portfolios by some of today’s elite artists, galleries and emerging talents. The shows attract more than 38,000 attendees each year and represent more than 650 artists and galleries worldwide.
“We are thrilled to announce our exclusive lifestyle partnership with one of the region’s most preeminent real estate leaders,” said Eric Smith, CEO of Redwood Media Group. “The clientele that Cervera Real Estate has been serving for over 48 years is extremely compatible with the audience of collectors and art enthusiasts that our shows attract in Miami and nationwide. These individuals often acquire second or third homes and are looking to fill the walls of a newly bought property or as part of a renovation project. These “nesters” live in a world where they’re aware of art and they want to own a meaningful collection, such as a print or work by an emerging artist. Art buyers today are increasingly purchasing work for their high-end homes, and South Florida is the epicenter for both luxury real estate and luxury art.”
“We’re pleased to form this unique strategic alliance with two of the longest running art fairs during Miami Art Week,” said Veronica Cervera Goeseke, CEO of Cervera Real Estate. “Today’s contemporary art world is perfectly aligned with the current luxury real estate landscape, and this valuable partnership allows Cervera to offer its clientele an insider’s perspective on the existing trends within the fine art marketplace.”
Red Dot Miami, a curated gallery-only contemporary art show, now in its 11th year, presents [IMPACT] as the curatorial theme for 2017. Art not only reflects society but also influences it.
