Mnuchin Gallery Claims to be "Not Affiliated in Any Way" With Trump Treasury Secretary Pick, and Senior Gallery Partner's Son, Steven Mnuchin

So far maybe not so good for those looking for a little grace-and-favor nepotism for the international art world in the Donald J. Trump administration. The unpronounceably-named Mnuchin Gallery, which is exhibiting at this year's Art Basel Miami Beach, is publicly disavowing any connection to Steven Mnuchin, the Donald's pick for Treasury Secretary and son of the gallery's head honcho.

Photos from the Big Faena Forum Grand Opening Parade and Street Party in Miami Beach

This giant pineapple is why you couldn't get anywhere on the beach today. The Faena Forum Grand Opening parade included giant food being speared onto a giant shish kabob, street performers galore, and a fleet of purple Mercedes.

Louver House Tops Off, and Other South-of-Fifth Construction Updates

Louver House, a low-rise urban infill (okay, more of a mid-rise in the context of South Beach) condo South-of-Fifth recently topped off and its developers are holding a little topping off party very soon. It was designed by the fabulous local architect Rene Gonzalez. The party's on the roof of the building, which is still very much under construction. No I'm not saying when. It's a private party, so keep your hoi-paloi ass at home.

Paraiso Bay Tops Off & Breaks Ground on its 'Beach Club'
