AO! Guide to Art Basel 2017


In case you ain’t know, it’s time for Art Basel Miami Beach 2017! One of my favorite times of the year because not only do I get to check out some amazing art and have a little fun, but I get to go home! This also means that duty calls for yours truly to provide you with a guide of things to do from parties/events to art fairs.

Can you believe this is the 6th year I’ve created a Basel guide? Geez, time flies!

Check out what 2017 has to offer below and I’ll catch you guys in the magic city!
