With a cacophony of events and parties swelling the noggin during Art Basel, it should not come as a surprise that a savior has emerged to shepherd a flock of art aficionados through the soul-withering wilderness. Tonight at 6:30, Heather Urban, who has been anointed the insiders insider, will be preaching to converts at the Bass Museum of Art when she dishes out pointers on surviving the fair during her sermon Red Hot Basil: Spicy Tips for Art Basel.
Rub elbows and genuflect with the glitterati as Urban demystifies the multitude of events surrounding the orgy of hedonistic excess. Like Moses fresh off the mount, Urban will be presenting the 2006 edition of her book, Art Access Guide, which bills itself as the definitive manual to the preeminent social and cultural highlight of the Americas. Organizers swear Urbans scripture offers the only prayer for avoiding the locusts on the way to the land of milk and honey. Hallelujah! Reservations are a must.
