Art Miami - First Stop In Miami

Less than a week away Art Miami is one of the center pieces of the Miami art fair week. This is always one of my first stops on the art fair circuit and one of the must see fairs in Miami.

Art Miami maintains a preeminent position in America's contemporary art fair market. With a rich history, it is the original and longest-running contemporary art fair in Miami and continues to receive praise for the variety of unparalleled art that it offers. It is the "can't miss" event for all serious collectors, curators, museum directors, and interior designers providing an intimate look at some of the most important work at the forefront of the international contemporary art movement.

The fair will commence on December 4, 2012 with Art Miami's highly anticipated Opening Night VIP Preview. Last year, Art Miami attracted 8,000 collectors, curators, artists, connoisseurs, and designers during its Opening Night and 55,000 attendees over a six-day period.

Here are a few images to get you excited about attending.
