An outgrowth of the renowned Swiss art fair, Art Basel Miami Beach has been turning Miami into a citywide art extravaganza during the first week of December since 2002. Gallerists from all over the world set up shop at the Miami Beach Convention Center and other venues to show, sell, and schmooze with the more than 70,000 people who descend on the event each year. While the parties have become a major attraction (even for non-art lovers), concerts, lectures, film screenings, performance art pieces, and public installations have also become a regular part of the festivities. And they've expanded beyond South Beach to venues in Wynwood, the Design District, and elsewhere.
