myPhone: Donnamarie Baptiste

By Darren Ressler

Events/production manager for Art Basel Miami Beach, art influencer and Société Perrier luminary Donnamarie Baptiste has a jam-packed schedule. Can you imagine how much she had going on during Miami Art Week? So it’s only fitting that she keeps tracks of her busy social calendar with a phone that’s constantly by her side. We asked the art maven if we could peek inside her cellular device and here’s what we found.

Brand of phone: Don’t laugh. I still use a BlackBerry. I know, I know. Some habits are hard to break.

Who’s on speed dial? My mom, best friends, dentist, vet, NYC car service, favorite galleries and museums. (Can never get to them on time….)

Most bragworthy name on your contact list: Well, they’re friends. And I cringe when people drop names. So I’ll just say it’s a tie between a few very well known, very talented visual and musical artists.

Most used app: Weather Channel for cities around the world. And I’m always checking the weather in NYC. Second would be NYC subway map.

Favorite photo: This is most recent favorite photo of some talented artist friends taken during ABMB 12: Jesse Williams, Hank Willis Thomas and myself. Photo by Raymond Roker

Best text received: “I can’t wait to see you.”

Best call received: “Your mother’s going to be fine.”

Most played track: My ringtone “Welcome To JamRock” by Damian Marley.

Worst phone faux pas: Checking E-mail simply out of habit.
