For the 18th year, art lovers gathered at the Miami Beach Convention Center for Art Basel from Dec. 5 to 8. As always, there was plenty of walking involved. This year, they incorporated some smaller and mid-sized galleries, which led to a new mix of pieces. They also added a new section called Meridians for large scale artworks. They estimated the attendance to be 81,000 people with collectors from over 70 countries represented. In addition to a huge amount of artwork of all types of mediums, they also resumed their talk series, called Conversations, in which artists, art historians, critics, gallerists, collectors and museum directors. For those who have never attended, be aware, that there are food options in cafes there but most can be quite pricey; plus, you have to pay quite a bit to park. Across from the convention center was another show—Design Miami, a global forum for design. Missed it this year? There is always next year! For more information on Art Basel, visit
