Art Basel Miami Beach: A December to Remember

Art Basel in Miami Beach launched in 2002 as an extension of the more conservative Art Basel that takes place each June in Switzerland. While technically a five-day gathering of more than 250 galleries from across the world, the Miami event has come to encompass an entire week of art- and design-fueled events and expositions. Last December’s show broke records with about 75,000 attendees and more than $100 million in sales—25 percent more than in 2012. Following are a few of the event’s highlights. www.artbasel.com
