It was a beautiful Miami evening when US Austrians met in Miami for the Grand Opening VOKA. Frank Stronach invited to this special evening at his Gulfstream Park and personally introduced the Austrian artist, who is at least as colorful as his huge acrylic creations!
Meeting with fellow Austrians in the USA is always a great deal, but this time it was very special for us, since the VIP list had a number of famous names: Among 350 guests were the artist Art Voka with his wife Petra, US-Austrians President Guenther Edelsbacher with wife Elke, US-Austrians Ambassador for Miami Herbert Hofer with wife Ruthy, president of the Art Basel Miami Bob Goodman and his wife Diane, Alon Ossip, CEO of The Stronach Group, Music Legend KC from KC and The Sunshine Band, the fashion photographer Dewayne Wise, agency chief Ivica Djurdjevic, gallery owner Gerald Hartinger, Reinhold Kiss, Carina Fischer and Raimund Carl from the McCartney Group, and Honorary Consul of Austria Werner Stemer.
Frank Strohnach's team served typical Floridian finger-food like Coconut Shrimp and Conch Fritters, and to be honest, I stopped counting the champagne floats after finding out that there was a driver waiting to bring us back to our hotel:)
Great evening, thanks Frank;) See more pictures at usaustrians.com
