For the animal-rights activist and former Baywatch star Pamela Anderson, the “best part of Art Basel” is the local artist duo Clandestinos’s street mural of an orca titled Free Lolita, a reference to the show whale that’s been kept in captivity at the Miami Seaquarium since 1970. Anderson posted an image of the mural to Instagram. It is painted on a Wynwood building owned by the Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine, who supports Lolita’s release. “It warms my heart to see Miami’s artistic community joining with Peta to rally around this beautiful orca, who belongs in the ocean, where she might someday see her family again”, she wrote. Patron Jorge Pérez also chimed in: “Miami is one of the most progressive cities in the world. Holding orcas captive for show is no longer acceptable.”
