Art Basel or Art Mecca some would say.  Whatever you call it, it’s big and the most prestigious art show weekend in Miami that doubles as an international meeting place. How big? 2,000 plus artists participate. Weeks leading, the buzz was building and it was definitely in the air... and after much anticipation, I only got the opportunity to venture out on the last day. To my disappointment most galleries and shows ended as early as 6:00 p.m. on Sunday. Somehow, I thought, Basel should be in full operation 365 days year. In the meantime, I guess frequent trips to Wynwood will suffice. With family in tow, here are a few pieces of art that caught our eye. With next year already in mind, visit ART BASEL for more information.
