Opening its doors to art connoisseurs and prominent collectors from across the world, the Miami Beach Convention Center is hosting the prestigious Art Basel Miami Beach exhibition from December 2 to December 5, 2010.
A sister-event of the annual Art Basel in Switzerland, the Art Basel Miami Beach has emerged as one of the most recognized international art shows in the U.S since its inception in the year 2002.
The organizers of the event, UBS, has a longstanding relationship with Art Basel, serving as main sponsor for 17 years and is now main sponsor of Art Basel Miami Beach for the ninth consecutive year.
