Art Basel Miami Beach (Day Two…)

Recently I traveled to Art Basel Miami Beach with WVU faculty and students this year. This is an opportunity that the Director of the WVU School of Art and Design Alison Helm has been pushing for years, and I am so glad that I was able to go.

There was SO MUCH to see! Art Basel Miami Beach really takes over much of the city, and there are tents and pop up venues in small hotels everywhere! I think the most difficult thing about attending Art Basel Miami Beach is trying to navigate which tents to visit and HOW MANY one can actually see in one day.

Since it’s December, I thought I would start this post with some nice sunny pictures I took on day two…

“Pulse” was the first text we went to on day two…positioned on the beach, this was a relatively small tent with some good work to see…

I noticed a lot of paper cut work throughout Miami…this piece was quite large by Rena Bransten.

After lunch we went to “INK”…”INK” is print focused and took over a small hotel in the city…

“INK” has a very different feel with each hotel room representing a press or print-centric gallery…obviously, one of my favorite satellite venues…
