In the days after the news broke of the Jackson Pollock assassination, art fans all over the world began lining up at Art Basel, the annual art fair held in Miami Beach.
In attendance were some of the biggest names in the world, including Bill Gates, Elon Musk, Mark Zuckerberg, and even the Pope.
“Art is a powerful medium, but it is also a tool for spreading truth, bringing people together and empowering humanity,” Gates said, according to Reuters.
“We need to do everything we can to make it more accessible, accessible to everyone and empowering people to share.”
Musk said that his art had been “very influential” in the past and that the event was a way to spread awareness.
“We are doing an art festival, not to make art, but to make a statement about our world, about the world’s future and to help people see what art can do,” he said.
“And if it works, we will make more.”
Art and art festivals have been happening for years.
The first one, called the Venice Biennale, took place in 1997, and it was attended by artists from around the world.
This year, the Art Basels event will be held at the Grand Hyatt Hotel, the first time a major art fair is taking place in the United States.
“I feel very blessed and honored to be here, and I want to take my hat off to all of the artists and everyone who came out for the event,” said Roberta Gaskins, the founder of the Miami-based artist collective The Last of Us.
“It’s really an opportunity for people to take their art to a whole new level,” she added.
In addition to the artists, the event will also include fashion models, artists from the film and music industries, and artists from schools like the Art Institute of Chicago, which are partnering with the city to host the event.
Gaskins is hoping that this will be the first of many such events that will take place around the country in the coming months and years.
“There are going to be a lot of festivals happening,” she said.
“This is an opportunity to help educate the people, to spread the message, to help promote art.”
Artists from around North America have been taking to the streets for years, and the fact that the art world is so big and diverse is something to celebrate.
The art world has become a big part of our culture, so we’re seeing more and more art coming out,” said Art Basis founder Mark Kern, who said the event is a great opportunity to educate people on the importance of art.”
If you want to be creative, and you want art to inspire you, then go and have a go at it.
You won’t regret it,” Kern said.
