With sweet prizes and sweeter glory on the line, the Beached Miami community stepped up on Instagram and shared 1,500+ #beachedbasel photos from its collective Art Basel experience, posting everything from celebrity sightings (Will Ferrell, Beyoncé, Kanye, Iggy) and fabulously farcical fashionistas to flame-throwing graffiti artists and polka-dotted poodles.
Yes, it’s only Thursday, but Art Basel Miami Beach — the fair itself and the circus that comes with it — is well underway, as you can see in the 300+ photos that have already come through the #beachedbasel Instagram feed. For those who don’t know, you can win a $499 Dutch bike courtesy of Grolsch and other sweet prizes just for sharing photos from your Art Basel experience via Instagram with the hashtag #beachedbasel. Visit beachedmiami.com/baselcontest for full details on the contest, which runs through Sunday. But first, check out these shots for inspiration.
Ready or not, Art Basel is upon us. In past years, we have attempted to be everywhere and capture everything during the extended week of art madness, swelling our cameras’ memory cards to the bursting point and running ourselves ragged in the process. This year we have a different plan, and it involves you.

Saturday night was Art Walk in Wynwood and the Design District. As regular Beached Miami readers know, we usually shoot a photo essay of the monthly event. This time around we tried something different, and we’re happy to say it rocked the casbah. The Insta Art Walk Challenge asked participants to share photos from Art Walk via Instagram and/or Twitter in an attempt to capture the raucous gathering through the collective eye and lens of Miami. All told, about 40 people shared more than 260 photos (prize winners announced below gallery). Below you will find 44 #instawalk305 photos, at least one from each of the participants. You can hover over the thumbnails for photo credits and click them to see the photos in full size. To see all 260+ photos from the challenge, visit the Beached Miami Facebook page.
