"Warhol would have loved to be at this party," said Ultra Violet, Andy Warhol superstar and artist who attended the fast becoming legendary party hosted by Walter Otero Contemporary Art at the Bass Museum of Art on Saturday, December 8(th), during Art Basel week in Miami Beach.

"This event is by far the best marriage between the arts and party of Art Basel for many years to come. It was pure contagious magic and love, every second of it," said Brandi Reddick of Cultural Affairs and Art in Public Places of Miami.

Puerto Ricans know how to mix and blend, and the occasion celebrating the upcoming opening of the new gallery space of Walter Otero Contemporary Art in San Juan Puerto Rico was indeed pure magic.

Some of the most influential artists, collectors and power players in the art world including artist Tracy Emin (of Lehmann Maupin and White Cube Gallery, who was the first to arrive!), Rachel Lehmann and Carla Camacho, (of Lehmann Maupin Gallery, NY, Hong Kong), Luisa Lagos (of Yvon Lambert Gallery, Paris), Celia Birbragher (of Art Nexus), Silvia Cubina (director of the Bass Museum of Art), collector Cesar Reyes (whose house in Puerto Rico was designed by artist Jorge Pardo), artist Carlos Betancourt, Rocio Aranda, (curator of the Barrio Museum), Elisa Turner (of Art in America), Delphine Dray (owner of the National Hotel), Desiree Busi (of ArtBinder), MacArthur fellow poet Cambell McGrath, French singer Florent Pagny, international curator Mariagela Capuzzo, art critic Ann Tchida, Carmen Dominicci (of Telemundo), Belkys Nerey (Fox news anchor), collectors John Belk and Margarita Serapion and Broadway Producer Richard Jay Alexander were seen passionately dancing and chatting under the stars to an eclectic and spectacular mix of the sounds of Sinatra, Mancini, The Cure, Hector Lavoe and Mana amongst others.
