- Wed., Dec. 5 – Art Basel/MIA
(+ I’ll have updates from (maybe not, exactly) all the Fringe, Side-shows & “Collectives” in Miami.)
- Obey (10th & Collins Ave.) / Shepard Fairey
This is when all the “Collectors” (rich folk, with gobs-of -money.) start to kick it off. The pre-party’s (some events, like UNTITLED on the beach at 10th, kicked it off early – on Monday night.) allowing them to get a jump on any potential collector wanna-be’s (poor folk). This is when all the BIG sales (of major pieces) seem to happen – you know, when they put the little round (red/orange/green) sticker on the lower right-hand corner, and the Miami Beach Convention Center acts as HQ for the upper crust/established galleries – the pilgrims of the Miami Art (Basel) scene – now in it’s 12th year (13?).
- Black Cat (or Dog?) at Lords Hotel (11th & Collins Ave.) / Desi Santiago
- Islands (way back in 1983!) / Christo
