Art Week Influence HORIZFor 14 years, the Influence Communications team has been celebrating art in Miami the first week of December – with hundreds of thousands of friends, clients and tourists. Here’s our 2015 short list of favorite and most anticipated events of Art Week Miami.

The Satellite Fair. NADA – New Art Dealers Alliance is among the oldest running Basel satellite fairs, the only one run by a non-profit organization, and a leader in emerging artist and gallerist representation. We’re excited to see how they transform the Fountainebleau this year.

The Film Screening: The Soundscape – South Beach’s massive outdoor music and film venue – will be showcasing art films for free each night of the week. Weather permitting, a great way to end your day or start your night.

Off the beaten path: Don’t miss local gallerist Anthony Spinello’s “Littlest Sister” show in Little River, featuring 10 unrepresented Miami women artists. Little River may never be this accessible during Art Week again…

Neighborhood: The Design District is promising more than ever this year – more galleries, more site-specific installations, more people-watching. The best stuff is all free, including entrance to the Institute of Contemporary Art.

New & different: Come bear witness to the emerging Faena Forum and experience what promises to be some of the most boundary-pushing experimental programming of the week at the Faena Collaboratory. Other site-specific commissions will be unveiled across 6 city blocks. We can’t wait.

Take a break: We love the Broken Shaker, Le Baron, the Standard… but when we want to break away and still be in the middle of everything, we go to favorite local spots: Boxelder in Wynwood, the Deuce on South Beach, and the Corner Downtown.

Getting around: Walk, Bicycle, Shuttle, Carpool, Uber or UberBOAT, Lyft. Whatever you do, try to leave your car at home.
