The Wall Street Journal outs Alex Rodriguez as a collector during the party at his home for ArtBasel Miami Beach:
One very worthwhile affair was at the Miami Beach home of the New York Yankee Alex Rodriguez. This included a collaborative installation between Mr. Rodriguez and the young artist Nate Lowman, whom he collects, in Mr. Rodriguez’s indoor second-floor batting cage.
“It’s fun, right?” asked Mr. Rodriguez as he greeted guests in a snazzy blue blazer and tie, white jeans and loafers. “It’s got a little bit of a different twist.”
The lifestyle portrayed at this home, full of amazing art (Dan Colens, Warhol prints and a Hannah Liden sculpture among them), outdoor rooms, homemade peanut butter cups and a Ms. Pac Man machine in the fully-equipped gym that overlooked the bay, had one effect: It made us want to immediately changes careers to professional baseball player.
“I liked what he did,” said Adam Lindemann, an avid art collector. “Everything about him—his presence, his charisma, the fact that he’s interested in art—is very encouraging.”
