In a certain way also, Art Miami underscores the collector's interest as well as the importance of Christie’s — who, according to Bonnie Stone Sellers, CEO, is the only real estate network owned by a fine art auction house.
“Typically, many of our Art Miami clients are collectors and they are impassioned people,” comments Rick Moeser, Senior Vice President of Christie’s. "And many are young people! This is the fourth year of our being at this event and breaking sales records. Many of our buyers purchase second, third or fourth homes so they can have adequate places for their collections, whether it is art, furniture, or rugs, or anything collectible. The synergy between collecting fine art and collecting beautiful homes is so palpable at Art Miami! Last year, we had optimal sales and a crowd of over 60,000 collectors. This year we expect to do even better.”
