Art Basel 2011 : WYNWOOD

TheeBlog_ArtBaselWynwood
Art Basel Miami Beach is an annual contemporary art exhibition (sister event to Art Basel Switzerland) held in Miami each December,and if you live here or have been here during this event, you know what great and inspiring experience it is. This year Miami was celebrating the 10th Anniversary of Basel and I am happy to say that it keeps getting better each year as it spreads throughout the city and attracts more people and great international artists like Mr. Brainwash, Shepard Fairey, RETNA, Ron English, etc. There’s one specific neighborhood, simply known as Wynwood that it is slowly becoming a MUST during Basel – as well as one of my favorite spots during this time of the year and today I want to share some photos shot this past weekend to give you a little taste of the magic and give you a new excuse to visit Miami :)

The Wynwood Art District is a district of the Wynwood neighborhood of Miami, Florida, United States. It is home to over 70 galleries, museums and collections.

The Wynwood Art District Association was founded in early 2003 by a group of art dealers, artists and curators Mark Coetzee and Nick Cindric. Mark Coetzee initiated the idea based on a similar project, Art Night, he had started in his home town- Cape Town, South Africa. Founding Members at the first meeting were Brook Dorsch of Dorsch Gallery, Weston Charles and Cooper of Locust Projects, Nick Cindric of Rocket Projects, Bernice Steinbaum of Bernice Steinbaum Gallery and Marina Kessler of Marina Kessler Gallery. The Association publishes an annual brochure with a map and a list of the Association’s members. It is home to over forty galleries, five museums, three collections, seven art complexes, twelve art studios and five art fairs.

Every 2nd Saturday of each month a community wide Art Walk is held. Galleries, art studios, alternative spaces and showrooms open their doors to the public for art, music and refreshments. - wikipedia
