2016 Trips

Art Basel – Miami Beach 2016

Trip Fee - $1,200.00 (Dec. 1 - 4, 2016) 

When Miami & Miami Beach host Art Basel the cities are transformed into the world’s largest modern and contemporary art event. Art Basel Miami Beach draws tens of thousands of visitors – collectors, gallerists, artists, curators, art enthusiasts – from across the globe who come to experience the highest quality Modern and contemporary art, including works by well-known artists and newly emerging artists. With miles of sandy beaches dotted with classic Art Deco architecture, world-class art museums, and a glittering nightlife, Miami Beach ranks among America’s most iconic cities. During Art Basel, it embraces the art world with special exhibitions at museums and galleries across the city, transforming the week into a dense and dynamic cultural event.

Art Basel is the largest of the 15 to 20 art shows that arrive in Miami and Miami Beach during this art period.  Other art fairs include: Scope, NADA, Prizm, Concept, Aqua, Art Africa, and others. In recent years, the populations that come from the African Diaspora have established a rich portfolio of annual programs that highlight African/African American/Caribbean art, thought, and culture. This mix of art and the influence of the local cultural populations create, for a 4 day period, the most interesting mix and confluence of art, artists, community, and art-business in the United States.

The experience can be over-whelming and intimidating. That is why Obsidian Arts’ organizes trips to Art Basel-Miami Beach which are a balance of seeing, learning, play, and reflection.
