Art Basel 2014

Art Basel is the world’s premier international art show for modern and contemporary work featuring exhibits from nearly 1000 galleries.  With its stimulating program of talks and panel discussions to its global scope of participants, films and partners, Art Basel is eagerly anticipated every year – and for good reason.  Aside from the wonderful art, this enormously popular event is good for business and good for South Florida.

Restaurant, hotels, boutiques and tourist attractions all benefit from the tremendous influx of visitors.   But art is good business year ‘round.  Weiss Serota Helfman Cole Bierman & Popok partner Mitch Bierman is an avid art collector.  The impact of art is goes well beyond aesthetics.   As a board member of the Perez Art Museum Miami, Mitch has come to know more about artists and their influence on culture and society all over the world. The firm represents major artists including Enrique Martinez Celaya and others in their business dealings involving not only their artwork but also real estate and business transactions. Art influences the economy, encourages dialogue and addresses issues and concerns of the day.  

The firm’s involvement with the arts goes further.  Founding partner Joe Serota successfully represented the Perez Art Museum Miami involving a challenge to its city approval to build in its current location.   That successful representation allows PAMM to share its exciting exhibitions and cutting edge artisitce endeavors in a beautiful and memorable venue.

People often say “I may not know art but I know what I like.”   Everyone in South Florida likes Art Basel.
