Miami, FL – November 28, 2016 – As the sun set on day one of Art Basel Miami Beach week, Toys for Boys Magazine kicked things off with an elegant gathering of some of the week’s most relevant art talents. Cover stars Kehinde Wiley and Julio Le Parc were feted by a group of some 80 private collectors who came together to celebrate these great minds. Hosting alongside these men was Franklin Sirmans, director of the Perez Art Museum Miami, who came to Miami a year ago by way of LACMA just one year ago. The intimate dinner took place on royal tables that spanned the length of the PAMM terrace with views of the bay. Guests sipped Armand de Brignac champagne while exploring the latest, art-filled issue of Toys for Boys on Samsung Galaxy tablets that were lapped in Kehinde Wiley art work as a limited edition gift for each guest. Similarly explorable on Samsung tablets was the JetSmarter software where members, both existing and new-to-join, booked flights to travel privately with their new friends. When they weren’t dining or dancing to the sounds of DJ Gabby Mejia, attendees enjoyed an offering of Roger Dubuis timepieces. In attendance were a cleverly orchestrated group of art enthusiasts, collectors and gallerists from the world over.
