Art Basel Miami Beach - 2007

This years edition of Art Basel Miami Beach (ABMB) is over and more than 43,000 visitors attended. The weather was perfect but with so much art around, it was difficult to find time for the beach. Below are a few images to wet your appetite for visiting next year. At the bottom, you will find a link to additional images from Art Basel.

Thanks for posting. I actually went there, but was unable to take pictures since they didn't allow photography inside the Center.

Don't worry, I won't tell on you ;)
