It was full throttle at Art Basel this year in Miami. There were Lambos, Red Bull, Cuban expresso, Davidoff cigars, champagne, and Waikiki weather to keep me up.

We love Art Basel for many reasons, including the tidal wave of glamour that washes over Miami. And there was glamour in spades during the 13th annual Art Basel Miami Beach, where art, design, fashion, music, and celebrity blended into a deliciously decadent cocktail.

Intimidated By Miami Art Week? Don't Be

While most of Art Basel and the satellite fairs seem to be crowded with locals, I think the majority of visitors are out-of-towners or the usual Miami party people. It seems to me like the "real" residents of Miami-Dade County are not enjoying Art Week.

Art Basel and the Miami Art Fair are in full swing this weekend. It got exciting Friday night with the peaceful protesters came to visit all the galleries and installations en mass. Luckily we did get out before they shut I-95 down.

Art Basel is not Art Basel. Art Basel is just a small component and maybe the worst and most boring part of Art Basel. Art Basel really is this HUGE radio wave of satellite Art Fairs and pop-up events and Wynwood events and street art happening live in Wynwood and parties in Wynwood and on the beach.

How things can come full circle. Today if you call the name Opa-locka you should think art, architecture and design. Opa-locka is poised to be the "next big thing" in South Florida's percolating art community. Actually, it's beyond percolating, it's in a full on boil of excitement and opportunity.
