Richard Solomon and Staff to Art Basel!

Every year for the past half dozen years I have been going down to Miami for the annual Art Basel Miami art fairs. There are now over twenty fairs participating in the weekend of art in Miami and Miami Beach with over a thousand galleries from all over the world in attendance. It's quite a week! For the second year in a row my assistant May Parsey and my former intern Rachel Caires joined me. If you are at all interested in the fine art world this is the place to be since within a small radius you can see so much art from all over the world. For those of you who have gallery affiliations or who wish to find a gallery this is a great place to make contacts and shmooze with gallery owners.  Of course, you can't beat the weather, the food, and the people watching.

Here are some cherry picked shots of artworks that resonated with us..
