One of the greatest things about Miami is that it brings serious art to Florida. Before I discovered Art Basel, I was starved for art and only got to see it in my travels to New York and abroad. The rest of Florida tries to forget that Miami exists, but luckily I was able to live there for a while and discovered the real Miami. There is much more to Miami than just the Ocean Drive Strip and South Beach Clubs. Art Basel is one of Miami gems that basically shuts down the town to let art take over. It really is fabulous!
As with all events in Miami, some people do go overboard. Be ready for the madness! For Basel, it is as much a fashion show as an art show. If you want attention, feel free to wear your oddest outfit.
