AXW WELCOMES NEW FAMILY MEMBERS
ROLLS-ROYCE BRINGS ART DRIVE TO MIAMI
AXW has been working with Rolls-Royce to execute art drive experiences in a variety of US markets. These events combine a half-day test driving experience with an exclusive art experience at a private collection, museum or gallery. One recent art drive took place in Miami, in partnership with ONE Sotheby’s International Realty (ONE SIR) to engage with mutual potential clients. Stops along the drive included the Wolfsonian-FIU Museum, a $35.9M ONE SIR private residence, the Institute of Contemporary Art Miami (opening December 2018), the Cisneros Fontanals Art Foundation, and culminated at the 1000 Museum. Future Rolls-Royce art drives will be taking place in the Savannah/Charleston area, New England, and Los Angeles.
