This is one of the most exciting weeks for art lovers in the United States. Artists, collectors, gallerists, writers, photographers, and so on, are all flocking to Miami for Art Basel, the most extensive art fair in the country with over 200 of the world’s leading international modern and contemporary art galleries displaying the works of over 4,000 artists. In addition to Art Basel, there are countless satellite exhibits all over Miami where you can find young artists to museum-caliber masterpieces.
We are very excited to have one of the major art forces in Miami with us today on ”Lying in the Beach” who is going to tell us more about Miami Art Week. Kathryn Mikesell is the co-founder of Fountainhead Residency, an artistic home away from home in Miami where artists get the opportunity to create and connect with other artistic talent from around the world. Fountainhead has hosted over 390 artists from more than 45 countries. After 12 years of existence, Fountainhead is thrilled that over 100 of its alumni are now exhibiting in Miami Art Week.
