After a stellar opening night and first day attended by over 7,200 collectors, museum curators, collectors, artists, connoisseurs, and interior designers, sales continued to reach new highs on day two with record purchases for this year’s fair so far.

Among the high-profile crowd of collectors and influencers at the fair on Thursday was Peter Beard, Ashton Hawkins, Jorge Perez, Hilary Geary Ross and Wilbur Ross, Barry Manilow, and Juan Montoya.

“We had many six figure sales last year but not right out of the gates like we’ve seen in the first two days this year. I think it’s a positive sign that the art market is rebounding and collectors are looking for quality. It’s a very positive indicator for Art Miami, and our galleries and artists,” said Nick Korniloff, Director of Art Miami.
