My ART BASEL MIAMI 2018 Insiders Guide

Ok, here it is! The list everyone is asking me about! First and foremost, welcome to Miami!! If it’s your first Art Basel Week... well hold on to your hat, you are in for a real treat!  Art Basel can be overwhelming with SO MANY great things to do. I highly suggest being very organized to get the most out of it.  While there are many private fabulous events, even the art layman can get a true crash course in everything Art Basel Week has to offer.  Bring your A-Game and have fun.  The people watching alone is worth it!  Being well informed is always my strategy as the fairs change so much every year.  Happy Baseling my friends!  If you can’t be here for all the madness, please tune into my Instagram Stories for up to the minute action.
