Don't Miss Art Basel Events. By Geniusofdespair

Art Miami 2011

Tony Goldman at Wynwood Walls (Miami Herald)
There are hundreds of events going on, between December 6-9th, all over the metro area of Miami Dade County. They all revolve around Art Basel which is in the Miami Beach convention center. If you don't like art you can still have fun around town. Check out the Wynwood area. The Wynwood Walls (thank you Tony Goldman, may he rest in peace) are one of the highlights of the City of Miami. If you have never been there, it is time. Start out at 2506 NW 2nd Avenue. The walls have expanded from Goldman's plaza to the surrounding streets. It is magical street art and the area is alive with energy during Art Basel, with pop-up galleries and people wandering around the area. Don't miss this opportunity to be part of the action. The Miami Herald has an Art Basel pullout today.

Some events remain in your memory that make you sorry you missed them. For me, I stayed home New Year's Eve 2000. Stupid. Every year I go to events around Art Basel because NO WHERE else in the entire country is there such an opportunity for joy in celebrating the arts.  No more missed events for me...except I did miss the Eddie Vedder concert last night. Drat!
