Adventures in Art Basel

Art Basel, where do I start? Definitely something I could get used to..  There was so much going on and so many options every single day!! We started off the week right with some pre-Basel parties, the Gold for Life party and the Vanity Fair party at the MoCa.  The rest of the week was a whirlwind of galleries and parties.

We made to the MB Convention Center, of course, explored the Wynwood and Design District galleries, checked out the highly recommended Seven gallery, attended the Paper Magazine Party and Vogue Italia Party and even got to party right on our rooftop in Midtown.  Not bad for beginner Baselers!

Here is a quick look at our adventures through Art Basel.

Both of these were VERY detailed in pencil and we saw them at Seven.
