A Day Trip to Art Basel

For those who have not been, Art Basel Miami is the largest, coolest, most cutting edge contemporary art event in the country. Galleries from all over the world descend on Miami Beach to display works by Damien Hirst, Ai Weiwei, Cindy Sherman, Edward Burtynsky, Jasper Johns, and pretty much any other living top tier artist you can name. Works by 20th century greats such as Man Ray, Georgia O’Keefe, Andy Warhol, and Roy Lichtenstein are also usually prominent.

It is essentially the world’s biggest modern art museum re-assembled and re-curated every year. The depth and breadth of the artwork really must be seen to be believed.

Our luxury motor coach will depart Key West in the morning and reach the convention center in time for the noon opening. We will spend the day at the main Art Basel show. Entry is included in the price. There are also several satellite shows, such as Design Miami and Scope, within walking distance.

As parking can cost upwards of $30 per day and often isn’t available near the convention center, bus travel saves significant time and money, and is significantly less stressful.

Late in the afternoon we will transfer over the the Wynwood District, which is home to Wynwood Walls, a curated street art installation, as well as dozens of restaurants, tent shows and pop up galleries.

At around 9 p.m. we will load up the coach to head back to Key West, aiming to arrive just after midnight.
