For the Whitewaller Miami issue, out next week for Art Basel in Miami Beach, we handpicked a few insiders—a select group of those in-the-know on all things Miami—that shared with us how to navigate the city this fall. Here, we have Paula Wallace, President and Founder of Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD), share her top spots to eat, drink, network, and relax this week.
WHERE TO EAT
I love Bianca at the Delano South Beach hotel for lunch. The elegant, whimsical décor through the lobby transports you to a pristine outdoor dining experience.
WHERE TO SIP
Last year during Art Basel in Miami Beach, I joined SCAD friends and family for creative conversation and cocktails at the 1 Hotel South Beach rooftop. The only thing that came close to rivaling the company was the view.
WHERE TO SEE ART
Art Basel in Miami Beach, Design Miami/, and Untitled are annual destinations. I cherish an afternoon at the Rubell Family Collection, and am in awe of the programming at the Pérez Art Museum Miami. It fills up my soul.
WHERE TO HAVE FUN
And an evening with The Miami Symphony Orchestra (MISO) is always magical. I1m looking forward to the MISO pop-up series in December.
WHERE TO RELAX
Exercise and moments of mindfulness are a fixture on my daily to-do list. The Mandarin Oriental offers a full Pilates studio schedule. It’s the first thing I check on at check-in.
TOP SHOWS TO SEE IN MIAMI
SCAD’s exhibition in Wynwood, and any by SCAD alumni, of course! I try not to set an agenda. Art Basel is an adventure.
