Mandarin Oriental, Miami Celebrates Asian Roots with New Art Exhibition

Miami, Florida- Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine

The Mandarin Oriental, Miami is celebrating its Asian roots with a new Asian art exhibition, featuring more than 20 pieces illustrating portraits, landscapes and still life using Chinese ink. The unique exhibition is commissioned by a group of eight native Miami artists called Guild and serves as a prelude to Art Basel Miami Beach. Guests and art lovers can view the exhibit in the hotel’s lobby throughout November 2012.

The Guild artists featured in the exhibition have been working together since 2010. The group united around the principles of originality and craftsmanship, believing their art reflects meaning through creativity and ambiguity. The artists use Chinese inks, commonly used in fine calligraphy, to produce the pieces in the exhibition. Fine calligraphy is considered one of the highest arts in Chinese culture, making the exhibition an appropriate compliment to the hotel’s roots and artistic role.

“Our hotel has long played a role in Miami’s prominent art scene,” says Jorge Gonzalez, General Manager and Vice President of Mandarin Oriental, Miami. “We are delighted to support local artists and look forward to welcoming guests and Miami residents alike to view these specially designed pieces.”

The luxury hotel will kick off the exhibit with an exclusive live art presentation on Saturday, November 3 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at M-Bar, the hotel’s lobby bar. While guests are viewing the exhibition, Guild artists will be hard at work creating pieces of art ranging from surrealistic to abstract pieces around the hotel. The event will also include live music and cocktails with the dramatic views of the bay and the Miami skyline serving as the backdrop. Guests staying at the hotel during the exhibition will receive a beautiful Mandarin Oriental Art Book. Room rates begin at $359 a night.
