Art Floods Miami for Annual Fair

Posted: Dec. 7th, 2012  |  By Michael Pearse

Not even Superstorm Sandy can keep artwork from flooding across the country to reach the 11th annual Art Basel Miami Beach with nearly 50 at-risk art galleries from New York successfully participating in Miami's contemporary art fair. Amongst the largest of its kind, the fair will feature everything from Legos to photography, street artists and a space alien scavenger hunt.

Superstorm Sandy almost kept roughly 50 New York City art galleries from participating in Art Basel Miami Beach, one of the world's most prestigious contemporary art fairs, officials said.

Tens of thousands of people are expected to attend the 11th annual Art Basel Miami Beach, the U.S. extension of the contemporary art fair held each June in Basel, Switzerland. A rum-running skeleton, red Lego pieces stacked into a starry flare and man-sized vampire fangs are among Picassos and thousands of other paintings, photographs and sculptures on display through Sunday.
