Ever the epicenter of cool, Morgans Hotel Group’s Delano & Mondrian Hotels have released the preliminary schedule of hip events taking place during Art Basel 2014. While there are bound to be last minute additions and plenty of surprises, the sister properties always deliver exciting and delightful diversions during the busiest week on anyone’s social calendar. “Our hotels are a platform for creators to share their talents with the global travelers and the local community,” said Alan Phillips, CMO of the Morgans Group.

After the recent opening of artist Daniel Arsham’s exhibit at Miami’s Locust Projects, the Delano recently announced that they too will feature this groundbreaking artist with a large-scale installation in the iconic hotel lobby. Guests will move through the exhibit as they make their way to the Delano Beach Club and Bianca Restaurant.

The Mondrian will also showcase cutting-edge artists including The Teepee Project, where Jen Stark and Misaki Kuwai will debut their interpretation of historic teepee painting. Erected by the pool overlooking Miami’s Biscayne Bay, the installation is curated by Eric Firestone.

Celebrating the tenth anniversary of the Art Basel residency, notorious French nightlife impresario LeBaron will stage another takeover of the lower level speakeasy FDR Lounge at the Delano to stage nightly soirees. Guests learn about pop-up event locations by following LeBaron on social media. Delano Hotel is located at 1685 Collins Avenue on South Beach. Mondrian Hotel is located at 1100 West Avenue on South Beach.
