The big art week in Miami and Miami Beach will soon be upon us. Art Basel Miami Beach and eighteen other satellite art fairs will be opening around November 29th and continuing through December 4, 2011.
Time to start planning your trip if you haven’t already, for the best prices book your airline and hotels early. If you've never been to Miami for the contemporary art fairs this will be a good year. Warm Florida weather and more than 750 art galleries will be presenting artwork to stimulate and entice you into purchasing. The economy is down, but interest in artwork is still very high or events like this would not be happening and you might even find a good deal.
There will be contemporary artworks for all levels of interest and art collecting. The art fairs will be large and prestigious like Art Basel Miami Beach and there will be smaller art fairs like PooL and Fountain Miami, which primarily work directly with visual artists and offer an alternative art experience.
Art Miami, Pulse Miami, Scope Miami, Art Asia, Red Dot Miami, and NADA Art Fair, are traditional art fairs with art display in temporary art booths. Aqua11, Art Now, INK, PooL and Verge are Hotel art fairs and artwork is display in hotel rooms. SEVEN, is renting a space in the Wynwood art district for the seven featured galleries. Zones Miami and Fountain will also be showing in Wynwood and offer an alternative art fair experience. Zones is Miami based and shows emerging artists primarily from Miami.
The art museums of Miami, will also be featuring special events and exhibitions. And, don't forget the monthly artwalk in the Wynwood Art District, the galleries of Miami are worth a visit.
