“The world’s biggest arty party” doesn’t officially open until Thursday but don’t tell that to the folks enjoying the opening night preview of Art Basel 2012 at the Miami Beach Convention Center.
Described as “the most prestigious art show in the Americas,” Art Basel opens its Miami Beach 11th edition on Thursday, December 6th.
They’re blossoming where ever you look; 20 foot roses, a pig made out of wooden blocks and a striped stick thingy. Final touches are being put on hundreds of art installations for the official opening of Art Basel this week.
For the past week, art dealers from all across the world have taken over Miami’s art scene. Millions of dollars worth of art have been sold at events such as Art Basel and Art Miami.
