The Sagamore Hotel is an oceanfront, luxury hotel and cultural centerpiece located in the heart of South Beach.
The hotel was built in the early 1940’s when the city was defined an Art Deco playground mixing bright colors with stylish architecture.
The former Sagamore’s owners, Marty Taplin and his wife Cricket Taplin, decided to host an art brunch to cheer up the still-nascent arts community, and Cricket transformed the hotel with art from her private collection.
Their initial art exhibition was a big hit with the art world, and continues to appeal both to tourists and the cognoscenti, who now, fifteen years later, flock to her exclusive, invitation-only brunch and collection.
The iconic property is best known for its grand drive-up entrance, sleek white exterior and signature neon sign that can be seen from all parts of the beach.
Recently, new owners have bought the hotel, and the new team has decided to pursue the hotel art history, preparing an ambitious art program in partnership with major museums, galleries and non-profit institutions to showcase a wide selection of work from iconic and emerging artists alike.
The Sagamore Hotel will organize and host numerous events for guests and the public, like artist introductions, guided tours, and art talks that celebrate art in every dimension, such as visual arts, fashion, music and dance.
The Hotel is currently presenting « First Look », a Group Show of international artists entitled « Art & Beyond », curated by Sebastien Laboureau.
It celebrates art in every medium, introducing guests and visitors to the extraordinary intersections of art, fashion and technology.
Each artwork has its own story and impact, beyond its own visual and aesthetics, which the public can interact with to live a true art experience.
Therefore, We are proud to announce that our Gallery is the first one exhibited within the Sagamore Hotel. The artists presented in the collection are: Richard Orlinski, Phil Macquet, Bernard Pras, Kaï, Joël Moens, Idan Zareski, Markus Klinko, Steven Gagnon, Connie McSilver, Yom de Saint Phalle and Nadine Debien.
