Art Basel's Swiss Cachet

Our independent collectors wasted no time in jetting off to Basel, Switzerland for this year's major art event. A strong dollar, and weakened stock market made the acquisition of fine artwork seem like a reasonable event for many of our American members.

Shown here are just a few of the thousands of pieces which attracted our eyes over the four-day event. A new Pavillion deigned by 'starchitects' Herzog & deMeuron made the visit evn more thrilling.
