The most beautiful time of year has arrived — when friends fleeing from the cold seek refuge in our eternal warmth. It’s as if the buzz-waves from the Magic City travel far and wide to attract the most affluent, sexy jetsetters from around the globe. Sounds mystical, but it’s true. Anyone who has spent December, January, and February in Miami can attest to this. And how fortunate we are, we locals, to play host to such an interesting array of personalities.
Many out-of-town visitors will be arriving for the 12th annual Art Basel fair, which this year has been extended to include many other boutique fairs such as Art Miami, Context, Aqua, and several others around town. Not to miss this year is the Art in Public Spaces, but don’t expect this to be “Plop Art” — it’s curated by the director and curator of New York’s Public Art Fund. Turn to page 66 for all the details. Plus, read our Not To Miss recommendations for the week.
Taking inspiration from the arts, our cover shoot and fashion editorial was shot at The Margulies Collection at the Warehouse. A perfect balance of designer fashions and contemporary art come to life in Contemporary Meets Couture on page 34.
