Art Basel Guide
Art Basel Miami Beach is once again upon us bringing with it a swarm of satellite art fairs and parties that envelope the entire city. Detailing the non-stop activity is SocialMiami’s Art Basel Guide. From Fairchild to Wynwood, the Design District, MiMo, Brickell, Downtown, Midtown, North Beach and South Beach, all of Miami-Dade is ready to host inarguably the largest convergence of people from the international art world to descend upon a single locale for the entire year.

People & Art: Downtown Collectors
Miami’s cultural evolution has spawned many fresh facets to our city’s social landscape. One attribute is the advent of new collectors inspired by the city’s increased and better focused creative energy.
Jack Benmeleh and wife Tara Sokolow Benmeleh are native Miamians who are two such collectors.
