Overture Miami 2012

Overture in association with Arts For A Better World, presented a nice line up of galleries and artists at this years fair. It was their 3rd Edition to the Art Basel Miami Beach week art scene. They were in the same exhibition tent as Art Asia and Scope Miami, and it seemed to work well.
