Art Basel is the new Coachella.  Music was cool, but art is cooler.  Gather around completely unrestrained works, mix in its creators, dealers, and curators, and here you have Art Basel Miami: an open field for everyone to talk about and interpret art, and one big party of parties.  You know you can’t stay anywhere too long or you will miss out on everything else.  Whether you are at a private dinner at Calvin Klein’s house, the Art.sy party, Silencio, the Le Baron pop up, or of course all the shows, Art Basel Miami will give you the itch to never stay in one place. And with the best beaches, and the chance to catch up with your global network of contacts, what’s not to love?
