Missing Art Basel This Year? Here's What to Do in Miami Instead
While we are over the moon that Art Basel has announced 'OVR: Miami Beach' as a new iteration of Art Basel’s Online Viewing Rooms, 2020 won’t be the same without the international art fair taking over South Beach. That being said, there are still quite a few artsy endeavors happening around town. Missing Art Basel? Here’s what to do in Miami instead.

The Museum of Graffiti in Miami’s Wynwood neighborhood has a full week of programming planned for Miami Art Week. The world’s first museum exclusively dedicated to the evolution of the graffiti art form is hosting a “First Look” of Ahol Sniffs Glue’s Biscayne World exhibition brunch, a book release and signing with Ahol Sniffs Glue, and a private world premier of Why the Spray, a documentary that tells the story of five Miami graffiti artists and why they chose the artform. Be sure to book these in-person events in advance. Save 10% on entry to the Museum of Graffiti when you book your SoBe stay with The Sagamore.
Mark your calendar for early 2021. The longest-running free community cultural festival in Miami Beach is going virtual! “The best three days on Ocean Drive” will have dozens of online events, aimed at preserving, promoting, and protecting the city through historic preservation and educational initiatives. Sign up to be notified about Art Deco Weekend 2021 by email and to stay tuned for the much-anticipated show poster.

PAMM’s Digital Museum offers virtual tours, art talks, events, and exhibitions where you can explore additional resources like gallery notes, videos, news articles, and more.
