Aby Rosen's Basquiats hit South Beach
Thank Aby Rosen for the Warhols, Basquiats and Hirsts adorning the W South Beach, set to open in late June. The über collector—whose company RFR Holding is helping develop the hotel—has agreed to loan it some of his most valuable works. That’s not all: Michael and Eva Chow have commissioned a video animation that they’ll project on the walls of the in-house Mr. Chow restaurant, and original photos of such musicians as Bruce Springsteen, Beyonce and Tupac Shakur by rock ’n’ roll photographer Danny Clinch will hang in each elevator area.
