Miami Art Week - December 1 - 7, 2014


Let me start off by saying Miami Art Week is the best Contemporary Art Week in the United States, and most likely the best/largest in the world. If you love art this is your week, be in Miami.

More than 1100 galleries from around the world are bring art to Miami and Miami Beach. Plus all of the art museums and non-profit art organizations are planning special exhibitions and events. Did I mention galleries and artist studios, Miami has a bunch of good ones that should be visited, and much more. Finally, the weather should be in the 70-80 degree range, making for a great week.

If possible, plan on spending at least four days at Miami Art Week, as the week is flush with opportunities to mix, mingle; and, of course, feast one’s eyes on an incredible array of great art! Not only are the art fairs vibrant and engaging in of themselves, but related events and parties occur at local art museums, private collections, non-profit art organizations, galleries and artist studios.



About 1/5 of Art Basel Miami Beach

Art Basel Miami Beach – held at the Miami Beach Convention Center - is the largest art fair of the week, featuring more than 250 top galleries from around the world. Last year 75,000 visitors from Europe, Asia, Latin America and the United States visited.

Design Miami (a major design fair) takes place right next to Art Basel. If you are looking for a some really creative designs this is a must see fair. A reduced price combined admission ticket for both the fairs can be purchased at Art Basel.



Interior of Untitled. Art Fair Miami Beach

Other art fairs in Miami Beach include: Scope Miami, SELECT, Pulse, and “Untitled. Art Fair Miami Beach” are satellite art fairs are located on or near the beach; enjoy the ocean view!.

Hotel-based art fairs in Miami Beach include NADA, Ink and Aqua Art Miami. Ink is an art fair specializing in prints and limited editions. Aqua, is a terrific art fair not to be missed.



Poolside at NADA Art Fair

Art Miami – held in Miami's Wynwood Art District - is the most established art fair in Miami; it's been around for years. Context and Art Miami are next to each other and produced by the same organization. You'll also find Miami Project, Pinta, Spectrum, Red Dot and Sculpt Miami in the same neighborhood.

Most of Miami's art galleries and major private art collections are located in the Wynwood Art District along with the Wynood Walls, featuring street art at it's best. One can easily spend two days in the area and still miss a lot!



Interior of Miami River Art Fair

Downtown Miami you'll find the Miami River Art Fair at the James L. Knight Center and Concept aboard the mega yacht SeaFair, near Bayfront Park and the InterContinental Hotel. Miami River Art Fair is good for affordable Latin American and European art. Concept is in their first year and will primarily feature galleries in the Secondary Art Market (resale of previously owned artworks).



Exterior of Art Miami and a Shuttle

Free Shuttles, we highly recommend the free shuttle services, especially when traveling between Miami and Miami Beach. Shuttles are offered by Art Miami, Pulse, NADA, Concept, Fridge, SELECT, Miami River Art Fair and a few other fairs. However, sometimes the shuttles can be difficult to catch, so you might need other options like public transit or cabs. The city of Miami also has a free trolley system and a People Mover rail system.

You can find lots more information including brief descriptions, locations, hours, admission prices, and special events in our yearly:
Miami and Miami Beach Art Fair Guide.
