Art Basel Miami Beach was quite an experience again this year. Everyone in the business of art is here this week, and we saw galleries having great success from the first preview day and with each evening switch-out – some back rooms were nearly empty by Friday. Promised gifts were made, collectors were connected to great work, all at the year’s largest art fair. We were thrilled with our excellent finds and to connect with our colleagues.
Enjoy some of our favorites to follow.
