It’s that time of year again. The 13th edition of AQUA Art Miami, a sister fair of Art Miami, is returning on December 6th with a VIP Preview and then opening to the public from December 7th to 10th at the AQUA Hotel in Miami.
Set in a classic South Beach hotel with spacious exhibition rooms and a beautiful, breezy courtyard, AQUA Art Miami will be showcasing 52 international exhibitors who will be presenting works from emerging and mid-career artists. This unique event has solidified its ‘relaxed-yet-energetic’ vibe over the past decade and has become a favorite gathering spot for collectors to view and purchase art of the highest quality while exchanging cultural ideas and forming meaningful connections. This year, AQUA Art Miami will be complementing the international exhibitors by shining a light on fashion and style with a number of standout projects. You can read about a few of them below.
