ART discover and fall in love with a new artist amidst the sensorial overload each booth wall provides. Fortunately, true to Miami Beach form, the fun does not stop there. Modern art is never constrained to four walls and Art Basel would not have its fame if the effects were at an isolated venue. The best part about the exhibit coming to town is that the art world takes over. Studio visits are a major part of Art Basel. The expo provides a bus to shuttle guests to various art enclaves in the area. Featured artists open their studios to the public and host special VIP parties. This grand event offers collectors, artists, dealers, curators, critics and art enthusiasts from all parts of the world to meet the artists themselves and see how they work, and in turn allows the artists to brand their product to the world. Attendees will also enjoy special exhibition sections featuring young galleries, performance art, public art projects and video art. Art Basel caters various art exhibits for all cultures, tastes, and ages. This does not exclude the children; Art Basel's "Art Kids" is a daycare center for children with parents visiting during public show days. Children enrolled in this program will participate in creative activities, including arts and crafts, art history and storytelling. The Miami Children's Museum's well trained staff supervises and encourages these young artists. From December 6-9th, Miami will be at the epicenter of the art world. If you are a local or simply passing through, I urge you to take the time to discover your inner art enthusiast. Ticket pricing for the event ranges from $29 to $90. Included in the fair is the aforementioned shuttle service to facilitate visiting the museums and collections. Advance tickets are also available. If you've never done something like this before, Go! For a few bills, you can visit some of the world's best galleries and take part in a cultural movement. This event is THE place to be.
