Plan your exhibition visits for Art Basel Season in Miami

The Art Basel week is finally here. During the week of Art Basel many peripheral art fairs will showcase excellent artworks from all over the world. We recommend you to plan ahead your visit to take more advantage of your time. This is a week full of events,cocktails, gallery opening receptions, parties and big shows in the city.

The official Art Basel Fair opens its doors to the public at the Miami Beach Convention Center on Thursday Dec 5th, and ends on Sunday Dec 8th. Of course there is always an early view for press, and gallery centers, buyers or collectors with VIP passes. The regular tickets to all the art exhibitions can be purchased at the door of each fair. The prices will vary from fair to fair. 
The first day openings are only for press and VIP pass holders, next day after that all shows will open public access to their facilities.
