The Ringling invites our patrons to an immersive art experience led by Artful leading up to Art Basel Miami Beach fair with an optional extension including VIP access to the fairs with curator-led tours of Art Basel Miami and other selected fairs. This experience will highlight a combination of the must-see art Miami has to offer the week of the fair with private visits to artist studios and collector homes. Miami's art scene has boomed in the last several years as more artists, collectors and galleries migrated South. This tour will offer a broad and deep view of one of the most engaging art scenes in the US today.
