Biscayne Bay can be seen from many high rises along Downtown Miami, and surrounding districts. The Art Basel season was in full gear last week, and the Bay area was in on this action too:
Update On The Gator In The Bay
Art Basel made a giant splash in the Bay area – literally. A giant simulated Gator floated along canals and the bay, where the U.S. Coast Guard and Miami-Dade’s Department of Environmental Resources Management had to OK the sailing of the Gator – unhindered and non-motorized. From last Wednesday December 5th, to Sunday December 9th, the Gator could be viewed during the day, as it cruised relentlessly through narrow passageways. In the evening time, the giant Gator was towed back to its docking station at the Miami Yacht Club at Watson Island. After Art Basel’s events wrap up, the artistic Gator will then make its way to the Seminole Hard Rock Winterfest Boat Parade in Fort Lauderdale on December 15, 2012.
Miami Art Museum Scheduled To Be A Giant Art Player for 2013
According to the Miami Herald, this time next year the “new” Miami Art Museum, will make its debut as one of the dominant players during Art Basel season. It will be the product of a $100 Million infusion from sponsors throughout the city of Miami.
This event – The Art Basel Season – has transformed Miami into a cultural Mecca, rather than just a mere tourist destination for frolicking in the sun. It’s where celebrities, billionaires, and well-revered men and women congregate each year to select and peruse pieces of art.
Art Basel will also offer numerous opportunities to real estate agents, in terms of a making an elevator pitch to an affluent crowd through marketing materials or mere conversation. According to the Miami New Times, the art industry is now a billion dollar industry – in Miami alone.
