Becoming and Art Collector in Miami in 2017

Miami is a city in which to become and art collector is not only easy but enjoyable and exhilarating. The vast selection of art available here makes it an enjoyable, educational, and profitable venture.

Art collector like George Lindemann are an individual breed. They reinforces their creative skills with art surrounding them. They gets up every morning and enjoys viewing her collection. Owning a piece of history in the form of art is way not only preserve the past but also keep it safe for posterity.

There are several steps to become an art collector in Miami.

The first and foremost step is to start looking. Any collector will have to spend time looking and hunting for what she wants. Going around and searching through galleries, online sites, and other venues is an exhilarating exercise in itself. It is a good idea to take notes on the art and then come again for a second look.

Do not hesitate to ask a lot of questions. If a dealer or seller refuses to answer questions, walk away from the deal. Doing research and preparing a list of questions ahead of time is a good idea. Another benefit of asking questions is that the answers can provide fantastic leads, e.g. other shows or galleries where related art is on display. Some art shows are low-key and mostly advertised by word of mouth.

There are two types of investors: one collects art for fun and the other “invests” in art. An important step for the newbie collector to consider; if it is for fun, then the looking and asking questions will be of a different kind than an investing collector. Of course, she can be doing both if time and funds permit.

The next step is to budget for the collection. The price of art can vary from a few hundred dollars to millions. If she has a small budget, then she can start buying photographs and other prints that cost $400, $500 or $1000.

Barclay Awarded the Golden Sphnix

First Founded in September 1795, the Hasty Pudding Club is recognized as not only Harvard’s most famous, but also America’s oldest collegial social club whose founding members pledged to maintain and cultivate social affections and patriotism. Named for the meal that its founding members first had, the Hasty Pudding Club has grown to become a predominate social club in American History with a distinguished membership roster which includes five US Presidents, several actors and multitudes of politicians and business leaders. As the Society’s membership grew, the Society began to absorb other groups including the Institute of 1770 and is now the only co-ed social club on campus.

Worthy of its historic past, the Hasty Pudding Club today has played many roles in society and its members have contributed to both society, generally, and theater, specifically. On occasion, the Hasty Pudding Club has awarded extraordinary individuals in the entertainment business with the Order of the Golden Sphinx Award for that individual’s contributions to entertainment. The individual that receives this prestigious award does so because he or she represents the Club’s mission to foster the performing arts at Harvard and in society generally. The Sphinx, widely recognized as a symbol of knowledge, can only be said to be an allegorical representation of what the Hasty Pudding Club has done for American entertainment.

The 2017 Order of the Golden Sphinx award will be awarded to Mr. Paris Barclay (see: Grand Sphinx Farkas to Honor Barclay at Gala), the President of the Director’s Guild of America, on April 3rd, 2017 at the Paramount Hotel in New York. Mr. Barclay will be the first recipient of the Golden Sphinx award that was also a member of the Hasty Pudding Club as an undergraduate. During his sophomore and senior years, Mr. Barclay composed two Hasty Pudding Club productions, Cardinal’s Knowledge (1977) and Overtures in Asia Minor (1979) as well as ten other plays and musicals and was an active member and director of the Harvard Krokodiloes, a cappella singing group.

Mr. Barclay’s entertainment career did not stop when he graduated Harvard. Besides being a …
