I'm excited to watch this series. Some of the finest collections in the world are in Miami and the included panel of collectors are at the top of the list. They are more than art buyers, they are passionate advocates and conservators of art and art history. Many have already opened up their collections to the public with large exhibition spaces in Wynwood. During Art Basel week most of the collections are available to view. What got them started, what keeps them going and what have they learned will be fascinating to hear. Tune in to Channel 2 tonight! GL
