Art Basel Miami

I have been hearing about the Art Basel festival in Miami for years and finally had the opportunity to visit this year.  It was amazing, and I was a bit overwhelmed by the sheer enormity of this collection of gallery exhibits.   This is a very quick tour of what I saw last week at Art Basel and I apologize in advance for not crediting each artist and gallery.  I started out photographing each description as well as the work and then ended up with so many photos it was hard to keep them straight.  Please enjoy this whirlwind tour and be sure to check out https://www.artbasel.com/miami-beach to learn about the individual galleries and artists.  

As described on the Art Basel website... "Leading international galleries show work from masters of Modern and contemporary art as well as pieces by newly emerging stars. Paintings, sculptures, drawings, installations, photographs, films, and editioned works of the highest quality are displayed in the main exhibition hall, while ambitious artworks and performances become part of the landscape at nearby beaches, Collins Park and SoundScape Park." www.artbasel.com
