Art Basel: From Basel to the Beach, Art is IN

Art Basel, the international art show and sister to the original Art Basel in Switzerland is coming to the Beach, and frankly, all over Miami, this weekend. The three-day show started yesterday, and ends on Sunday, and it includes art in all forms, becoming a type of cultural event for the eyes. Combining art shows with parties, special events and crossover moments featuring design, music, film and even architecture, Art Basel is the art event of the year.
