FRIDGE ART FAIR VIP PREVIEW
3 – 7pm
@ The Betsy Hotel – 1440 Ocean Drive, Miami Beach, Florida 33139
When Eric Ginsburg founded Fridge Art Fair (yes, the name is a play on Frieze) in 2013 he sent out a challenging call for exhibitors — “Can you fit into the Fridge?” They did… and answered the call again when Fridge’s winter fair, dubbed “The Miami Popsicle Project,” made its debut last December in Brickell. This year the fair moves to the underground gallery at The Betsy Hotel on Miami Beach and has renamed “Betsy’s Curated Mini-Fridge.”
Invite Only. Website
