Exploring Art Basel in Miami, Florida

Art Basel in Miami Baby it’s cold outside and at One Travel, we’re daydreaming about the faraway lands that creep into our thoughts when the virtual world at our fingertips keeps us from exploring the physical world outside.


Last week, our travel fantasy took us way out into the Pacific Ocean for some island-hopping across Vanuatu.


This week, we’re salivating over Miami’s Art Basel, the most important international modern art festival this side of the universe. 




The 2011 show officially began yesterday. So while we pile on the layers and keep it indoors this weekend in the Northeast, we’re thinking about basking in the pleasant 70-degree weather outside the Miami Beach Convention Center, where more than 250 art galleries from all seven continents will display the modern works of more than 2,000 artists through December 5.


Being the scenesters we are, we’re going beyond the Convention Center to explore the plethora of unique art exhibits that have taken over Miami Beach this week, like…


Scope Wynwood Gallery Arts District, 3055 North Miami Avenue: This international art fair exhibiting works by emerging contemporary artists runs through December 5.


Fresh Produce: Graffiti Gone Global Wynwood Gallery Arts District, 70 NW 25th St.: The SUSHISAMBA-sponsored display of street and graffiti art running through December 5 is a must-see.


Yves Saint Laurent Fashion Show Ridinger Estate: This who’s who exclusive event, one of Art Basel’s most coveted, is hosted by Vogue and takes place the evening of December 4.


Isabella Rossellini’s “Seduce Me” Exhibit The WolfsonianFlorida International University: Who knew the Italian actress had a thing for animal porn? Her quirky collection of short videos exploring the seduction rituals of animals will be on display through December 5.
