Art Basel 2018

Thursday, December 6–Sunday, December 9, 2018

Each December, Art Basel takes over Miami Beach with a modern and contemporary art fair with international acclaim. Over 250 galleries exhibit works from North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia and Africa in the Miami Beach Convention Center. Nearby Collins Park and SoundScape Park also come alive with large-scale projects and independent films. Additional Art Basel fairs can be found in Basel, Switzerland, Hong Kong, and Buenos Aires.

Please join us for this exciting trip to Miami Beach. Our travel program includes special VIP fair access with our chief curator and director and visits to private collections that you will not see on your own. Group meals and accommodations are also included.
