Into the Wild Night with the Center for Great Apes

On Friday, December 7, leading artists, designers, and a bevy of cultural enthusiasts flocked to Miami Club Rum Distillery for the Center for Great Apes’ Wild Night. Throughout the evening, guests sipped on cocktails while enjoying modeled fashions—commissioned by the Gabby Wild Foundation—inspired by endangered species. Artist Romero Britto purchased a painting by Bubbles (Michael Jackson’s former chimpanzee) saying that “it was the best and purest art in the whole of Art Basel.” Photos by Jon Norris & Yvette Alvarez.
