Local Event: Daniel Cosentino [MFA 2006] talks Art Basel

Daniel Cosentino, a fellow alum, will be participating in a coffee conversation at RoCo this upcoming week. Check out the event details below.

January 17, 1pm - Rochester Contemporary Art Center

Art Basel Miami Beach describes itself as "The most important art show in the United States, a cultural and social highlight for the Americas". It has been described in the NY Times as a "An Art Costco for Billionaires", an event that arguably serves as a barometer for contemporary art sales in the world's largest market. With over 40,000 people attending annually, not including attendance to the 14 satellite fairs, public performances, museums and related art events it has become a place for many to make an annual pilgrimage and survey the scene. Join us for coffee and a conversation about Art Basel Miami Beach 2009, the art market and its effects on the arts in Rochester as artist and educator Daniel Cosentino shares images, video, information and perspectives fresh from the event.
