Art Basel Miami Beach: Here, and Gone

While I was away in Seattle, Art Basel Miami Beach, the yearly event showcasing artists from around the world right in our backyard, one of those events that proves that this city has a lot more going for it than the superficiality most people associate with it, took place at the Miami Beach Convention Center.

Sadly, given I am currently the only Miami Metblogs writer and I was out of town, there was no coverage for this blog. To our good fortune, however, Alesh Houdek of Buildings and Food (and formerly of Critical Miami) did cover the event, so check out the following links and enjoy Art Basel Miami Beach 2008 vicariously.

    Too bad I am no longer on the roster. AS it turns out, I was the Captain of Miami Metroblogging for over tow years and covered 3 consecutive Art Basels. Last week I went to the main show several times, countless tent show and galleries and went o many VIP parties at all the top hotels. I took hundreds of great photos that I’m using for other purposes. What was happening in rainy boring Seattle ?

    Now, without typos:

    Seattle was awesome, as always. Thanks for dropping by, actually. I don’t even know if I have a City Captain at all at the moment (would it be me, by default?). If you’d like to share some of your coverage from Art Basel, please by all means let me know. And hey, let me also know if you’d like to come back and help out with Miami coverage!
