Dear Art Collector,
The art mecca is in full swing these days at the Art Basel|Miami Beach hoohah. What's the big deal...? This is it, an exceptional smorgasborg of art for the partaker, where collectors of every discreminating ilk browse and search, and purchase. For neophytes, this could be the beginning of a very serious collection habit.
Thousands, literally, thousands of artists - emerging, mid-career, and established - present artworks, solo or sponsored by their gallery of choice. The parties and celebrities descending on Miami Beach (South Beach) are a wonder to behold, the walking equivalent, in many ways, to the artworks on the walls. Galleries from all over the world come and set up their booth, or in some cases, a hotel room, fêted and hosted by promoters and curators. Go! If you're in Miami - throw yourself in the throng, fight your way past the gawkers, join the fray! There's nothing like it and it's worth every minute of your time!
