Gary Pini
We'll bet you've already started packing for your annual Art Basel Miami junket and we're happy to help you fill your calendar. This week, it's Part III of our Basel-tidbits-to-know-come-December roundup.

The Sagamore Hotel (1671 Collins Avenue, South Beach) plans to display artist Will Ryman's "The Roses," a gigantic fiberglass and steel sculpture, from November 27 to December 4 on the beach behind the hotel. [Soul of Miami]

The Wynwood Walls
outdoor mural park founded by Tony Goldman is now in its third year and they're growing to 20 pieces with new works expected from Gaia, Sego & Saner, Nunca, Intersni Kazki, Retna, How & Nosm and more. Check em' out in Miami's Wynwood arts district around NW 25th Street and 2nd Avenue.

This year two local Miami galleries -- David Castillo and Frederik Snitzer Gallery  -- were selected to exhibit in the convention center during Art Basel Miami.

Over 70 artworks from the private collection of Adam and Lenore Sender will be on display for the first time during ABM. Curated by Sarah Aibel, the exhibit, called "Home Alone", will take place in a North Miami home that has been stripped of furniture and completely filled with art. [GalleristNY]

If you wander into the Delano hotel and happen to run into Chris Paciello, don't faint.  The former New York and Miami nightlife maven who served time for robbery and murder, is back in town and is supposedly going to run a new club in the hotel. [TheMiamiHerald]

South Beach promoters TAI Entertainment are moving into uncharted territories (at least for them) with a new nightclub called Ricochet (3250 NE First Avenue) coming soon to Midtown Miami.
