When The Art Comes Down

| November 21, 2016 | Calendar

While notable, high-end art fairs roll into Miami for Art Basel, Super 8® will host an exhibit enticing gallery-goers to snatch a piece of art – for free. Once an overlooked decoration at its hotels across North America, Super 8 is taking its art “off the wall” to make way for the brand’s contemporary redesign, already available at nearly 60% of hotels. Nearly 100 eclectic pieces of “not-so-super” art will be free for the taking, on a first-come, first-serve basis, at When The Art Comes Down: Works from The Super 8 Collection Miami Edition.

The Miami event will feature a “certified Bob Ross instructor” who will guide attendees on how to paint like Bob as a way of celebrating him and this kitschy category of art, helping give Bob a much-deserved Basel moment of his own. Also, each of the Super 8 works on display will be named using Bob’s catch phrases as further tribute.

Together Super 8 and Bob Ross remind us that art isn’t just for the chosen few – it’s for everyone. Hoity-toity art? No thanks. If you like art with “charm," then this event is right for you. Super 8 hopes Miami’s art fair community will share in the enthusiasm of the collection, appreciate its “value” and join in celebrating the kindred connection to Bob Ross.
