Art Basel – Miami Beach 2014

art basel

                     

For the 12th year in a row, Art Basel will descend upon us from December 3rd through the 7th, turning Miami Beach and its surrounding areas into the art world’s playground.  Our communities will be transformed into galleries, offering tourists and locals an experience like no other.  Tens of thousands of visitors and residents will marvel at contemporary art, eat at “pop-up” restaurants, and will be treated to the best of Miami – world-class offerings in a world-class city.

I am excited to share the Art Basel experience with you.  Here’s a taste of what you can expect during these five exhilarating days:

 

Events

What makes Art Basel special here, is that everywhere you go, a new experience awaits you.  You will gaze at the creations of your favorite artists, while meeting new, up-and-coming local artists.   The main fair at the Miami Beach Convention Center is by far the largest exhibition, and smaller events will take place all around Miami, from Downtown to Wynwood and the Design District.

Food

Good food is part of the Miami culture, and Art Basel is taking that experience to the next level.  In addition to fashionable restaurants and delicious dives, other food options will literally “pop-up”. Pop-up restaurants are common during Art Basel.  This is something you don’t want to miss, because once the fair is gone, so are these cool eateries.  Click on the following link for more information on a pop-up created by Miami native, Michelle Bernstein:

Where to Stay?

As major tourism capitals of the world, Miami and Miami Beach effortlessly cater to every personality, offering a wide variety of accommodations – from small and intimate, to grand and luxurious.  Choosing the perfect place to stay, especially during such a large event can be stressful, so I found the perfect site that showcases some of my favorite hotels:
