COLUMBUS, Ohio - (BUSINESS WIRE) - NetJets Inc., a Berkshire Hathaway company and the worldwide leader in private aviation, announced today that the company will celebrate its 11th anniversary sponsoring Art Basel Miami Beach, the Americas' most prestigious modern and contemporary art show. NetJets has proudly partnered with the international show since 2002. Art Basel Miami Beach will run from December 6-9, 2012 at the Miami Beach Convention Center and will feature more than 250 leading galleries from North America, Europe, Latin America, Asia and Africa, showcasing works by more than 2,000 artists of the 20th and 21st centuries.

"Art Basel Miami Beach provides a platform for the world's most talented and innovative contemporary artists, and through our partnership with the show, we are pleased to provide our customers with exclusive access to this prestigious art event."
For the last ten years, NetJets celebrated the opening of Art Basel Miami Beach by honoring acclaimed artists or art collectors at a private cocktail reception known as the NetJets Collectors Cocktail. This year, NetJets will host the NetJets Collectors Cocktail in collaboration with Artspace, the leading online marketplace for contemporary art, on December 5th at The Bath Club located in the heart of Miami Beach. The event will highlight the work of six international artists selected by Micaela Giovannotti, an independent, New York- based curator, NetJets and Artspace. Keeping The Bath Club's architecture and locale in mind, the works that were selected are loosely-based aesthetically or conceptually on the baroque style. The celebrated artists whose work will be featured at the party include:
- Angelo Filomeno
- Luis Gispert
- Wangechi Mutu
