Miami, We’re all Baseling
As Art Basel 2016 approaches, the event continues to expand to include more innovative shows in new venues. It is important to be strategic so you can cover everything that you would like to. I have highlighted the most visited shows in this email. Get lost, explore and just enjoy your time in Miami during this very creative and fun few days.
Have Fun! Happy Baseling!

Cuban-born Miami artist Antuan Rodriguez’s solo show at MOCA addresses the human concern for universal communication through forms, symbols and codes. Sources say pieces in the exhibit are almost sold out before it even opens.
The launch reception on November 30th is $30/ticket and free to MOCA members. Buy them here. Antuan’s work can also be seen at our Compass office on Lincoln Road.
Superfine! presents artwork that’s affordable and representative of the local art scene. And, tickets start at $7.77. Their events include a discussion on how to start your art collection. Click here for all the super important programming info.
Check out the best satellite fairs here. Our pick is Untitled.
Catch a Ride
Traffic is nightmarish during Art Week. While Uber is a favorite to avoid parking (and celebrate responsibly), there are other cheap or free options available. Learn about them here. You may even ride the Compass Trolley through Midtown – it’ll be on the Art Basel Route all week!
