A bit of history and time of Art Basel Miami Beach

Art Basel in Miami Beach — photo from the exhibits — American ButlerArt Basel is an art week, in the framework of which exhibitions and shows of thousands of eminent gallery owners, demonstrations of exhibits from private and private collections, galleries exhibit their collections from dozens of countries. The exhibition includes the simultaneous holding of several exhibitions, galleries and other cultural events.

The history of the festival began back in 1970, when 3 outstanding gallery owners from Switzerland, Trudy Bruckner, Ernst Beyeler and Baltz Hilt, organized a stunning festival in Basel. In 2002, gallery owners were invited to Miami Beach, as a new cultural center in the world. It was the first art exhibition and fair in the United States of this magnitude. Since then, a festival called Art Basel Miami Beach has been held annually, attracting more and more tourists, connoisseurs, artists, gallery owners, restaurateurs and celebrities from around the world.

In December, Florida is very good and, as always, sunny. Although a little cool for the indigenous people. Outside the window an average of 25 degrees, the water temperature is the same. You can swim in the ocean and collect shells, although many prefer pools. In December there is no severe summer heat, which can be easily transferred only on the seashore and many tourists catch a cold under air conditioning.

For the inhabitants of most northern countries, it is December — this is the most comfortable time for a detailed and attentive acquaintance with Miami. You can leave the house without a panama and not turn on the air conditioning.

At other times, it’s hotter to spend an art week in Miami would be difficult — all on the beaches, in restaurants, in clubs or in air-conditioned supermarkets. It's hard to admire high art, sweating and dreaming of a surfboard and a glass of cold cola. Well, finally, you can put on a tuxedo without fear to turn into a piece of roast on the ribs. The time for this wonderful Art Basel Miami Beach festival is perfect.
