Every December, artists, collectors, celebrities and visitors from all over converge in the 305 for a true artistic spectacle, Art Basel Miami beach. In addition to the main art exhibits at the Miami Beach Convention Center, gallery openings, hotel after-parties and spinoff events attract impressive crowds. Art performances, inflatable sculptures and giant installations come to life and virtually take over neighborhoods like Miami Beach, the Design District, Coconut Grove, Wynwood, Downtown Miami and Coral Gables.
