ART BASEL MIAMI BEACH, RAIN, STILETTOS and CRANES

If you didn’t make it to ABMB this year, one thing you missed was a lot of rain.......for five straight days. The rain made it difficult to get to the 20  (count em) satellite shows, which included, Aqua Art Miami, Design Miami, NADA Art Fair, Scope, CONTEXT, X Contemporary, INK, and Miami Project, to name a few.

I had a car (bad idea) and traffic was crazy. There was endless construction going on in Miami as it continues to enjoy a cultural boom. I wasn’t able to see everything (unfortunately missed NADA), but I heard collectors made quick work of the show on opening night.  I did see plenty to satisfy and overload my senses – a small sample below.
