Art Basel Miami 2018

This year, I attended Art Basel/Design Miami for the first time. I had an amazing time because I do love to see all the art work that is included in all of the different shows. A $50 Million Rothko was also part of the exibit but it was not sold but a $17 million Pablo Picasso’s Tete de Femme (1917) at Van de Weghe Fine Art. A lot of the art work I have seen before, but I did take a few pictures of my favorites. Design Miami gave me life because I love interior design. It was absolutely stunning.
