QUINCY, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sentient Jet, a Directional Aviation company and the inventor of the Jet Card, in partnership with world-renowned art business Sotheby’s, today shared details of exciting activations held during the 2017 edition of Art Basel Miami Beach. The annual fair anchors a week of exhibitions and events and brings together the world’s leading collectors. The activations mark Sentient Jet’s latest collaboration with Sotheby’s as their Preferred Aviation Partner in North America, a title that the company has held since March 2017.

On December 5th, 80 Sentient Jet Cardholders and Sotheby’s clients were invited to the “unofficial” kick off of the week of events – a special annual luncheon hosted by Sotheby’s Chairmen, Lisa Dennison and Amy Cappellazzo and held at Marcus Samuelsson’s newest restaurant in Miami’s thriving Overtown neighborhood. In addition to receiving a special preview of the space, which will not open to the public until 2018, guests were treated to a local jazz trio performance.
Later that evening, 80 VIP guests from within the Sentient Jet, Sotheby’s, and ONE Sotheby’s International Realty networks were welcomed to one of the most spectacular private homes in Miami for a special “Cocktail & Conversations: The Role of Artist as Instigator”. Hosted by Eric Shiner, SVP Contemporary Art for Sotheby’s, and multidisciplinary artist and designer Sebastian Errazuriz, the reception featured a question and answer format discussion led by Eric and champagne and hors d’oeuvres were served at the event.
