It’s Art Basel week in South Florida

Staged annually in Basel, Switzerland; Miami Beach, Florida; and Hong Kong, the premier international art fair, Art Basel, will be taking over South Florida all week long. Selling the works of established and emerging artists, thousands of art enthusiasts will flock to explore the newest trends in art, fashion and music.  South beach and downtown Miami will transform into an art mecca as every gallery, museum, venue, restaurant, and bar hosts their own unique art themed event. With hundreds of events ranging from luxurious art shows to warehouse raves, we’ve put together our favorite shows to catch at this year’s Miami Art Week.
