SO SO Much coming up this week for Art Basel.

Haven't had much time to sit down and research everything going on, so I'm going to be fabulously lazy and direct you to other local blogs who have written about the upcoming Art Basel, Music and everything else artsy. I checked the weather today...and it really is going to be the perfect week to be outside appreciating art, Miami and why we all heart Miami!!

Happy Art Week!

Beached Miami's Top Ten:
Top Ten (Out Of 10,000) Things To Do

Planning your attack during the onslaught of Art Basel Miami Beach requires military-style logisitical planning. There are events upon events upon events, some higher-than-highbrow and others with only the most tenuous connection to art. In this list, we suggest 10 out of the literally countless things to do this coming week, from Max's Kansas City at ABMB itself to the fairly epic American Exuberance exhibition put on by the House of Rubell.

Art Basel Music Guide

For obvious reason, most people think of ABMB as primarily an art extravaganza. While it is certainly that, it is also an unofficial music festival, drawing globe-trotting live acts to Miami like pilgrims arrived. As in years past, there are so many worthy shows booked during the week of ABMB 2011, including Neon Indian, YACHT, and Moby unplugged, that planning your music schedule becomes a complex math problem. To help out, we’ve curated a list of confirmed shows between Wednesday, Nov. 30, and Sunday, Dec. 4, from the Miami Music Guide.
