Last week, Art Basel (pronounced Bah-zil, not basil, like the seasoning) returned to Miami for its tenth time. A popular annual art appreciation event that originated in Switzerland, Art Basel begun on November 30th for those with exclusive invitations, and celebrities such as Catherine Zeta Jones, Michael Douglas and Val Kilmer were in attendance. It became open to the public on Thursday, December 1st and I decided to go check it out.
I was born and raised in Miami, Florida, not too far from the Design District. I now live about an hour north, but I make trips down frequently and try to visit the area whenever I get a chance. From fine arts to fashion, to furniture showrooms and lines of shops selling all types of home décor—the area features a little of everything to appeal to the artistic side in everyone. The Design District of Miami is a place that leaves you feeling truly inspired to be imaginative, to experiment, and to create.
