Going strong since 2002, Miami Art Week is a wonderful version of Miami to visit. The event has grown from humble beginnings as a spin-off of Art Basel Switzerland to a world-renowned cultural institution with the entire city becoming ground zero for the global art community.

Encompassing not just the Art Basel fair, but several satellite art fairs across the city, people from all over the globe come to Miami to find inspiration and get in some amazing people watching. This year’s Art Basel takes place Dec. 2-4 at the Miami Beach Convention Center, providing an opportunity to see some of the most cutting edge contemporary art, including painting, sculpture, photography, installation art and video art in one place.

It’s not just about artwork though! The parties, installations and social events during Art Week are numerous. And whether you’re new to the Miami area or just planning for a busy festival, you’ll need a guide to what’s ahead.
