Art Week Miami

This week was Art Week in Miami. Art Basel is at the epicenter of it all, and many other fantastic shows take place while galleries fill their walls for art enthusiasts from all over the world to enjoy. Thanks to my lovely day job at the museum, I got to make it out to tho of the bigger shows and be a guest at a fun party. My week started on Tuesday December 1st with the opening of the Back-in-Style and Friends Gallery in Midtown.
Then Wednesday night was the much anticipated opening night, Vernissage of Art Basel at the Miami Beach Convention Center. The halls were full of fantastic art, and outlandish fashion--- oh, and lots of friends too. After Vernissage we went to the Art Basel Loves Music event right on the beach on 21st Street.

The funny thing about the Basel Loves Art event, is that there were tickets---which honestly you did not need at all. You could literally walk right in. And who wouldn't want to walk in? It was set up really cool. Thursday night we went to the Miami Art Museum's Annual, Party on the Plaza... or MAM POP for short. It was a fun event with a lot of great food, people and art naturally. Shepard Fairy of Obama Hope fame was on hand to unveil his new piece which you can see right on the Plaza.

Friday, I left Mr. at home and went to an Art Basel conversation with museum friends and then we headed out to Art Miami in its 20th Year. It was fantastic! The space right in Midtown was easy to navigate, the art was brilliant and with VIP passes, the Nespresso Lounge was delish!
All in all it was a great week--- I'm sad to see it is over now. Now--to focus on the Baby Mamas Benefit Holiday Bazaar on Saturday.
