Starting early next week, the annual onslaught of events surrounding Art Basel Miami Beach begins (and with it our #beachedbasel photo contest). Inarguably the high point of the Miami social calendar, we can all admit that at least half the fun comes from observing the human zoo that pours into town from ever corner of the globe. At the center of it all, of course, is the massive ABMB fair itself, housed in the cavernous Miami Beach Convention Center. But even that only represents a slice of the action.
With 50+ international contemporary art exhibitors and hundreds of artists under one tent, Art Wynwood will launch its inaugural fair on Thursday night in Midtown with a VIP reception. The sister fair of Art Miami, Art Wynwood aims to distinguish itself on the ever-growing listing of Miami-based art fairs with “cutting-edge, contemporary, and modern artwork by both emerging and established artists,” including many represented by Miami galleries. The fair opens to the public on Friday at 11 a.m. and runs through Presidents Day Weekend until Monday at 6 p.m. To enter to win a pair of full-access VIP passes, simply leave a comment on this post. We will announce the winner in the early afternoon on Thursday.
