There is a lot to do in Miami during Art Basel so you may not want another item added to your list of “must sees.” Nevertheless, consider including this fair: Aqua Art Miami at the Aqua Hotel on Collins and 15th Street in Miami Beach.
The fair has a laid-back vibe, lots of art and a good-sized crowd that feels happening without being claustrophobic.
Moving the Still festival organizers and artists tell us what's so great about the GIF.
Remember those unsettling dancing babies? The ones that got passed around the Internet in the days before social media and eventually made their way onto the Fox TV show, Ally McBeal? Those were GIFs.

Here at WLRN, we are acknowledging one of the secret, insider joys of Art Basel week: the people-watching.
Yes, the art is the core of Basel and the satellite fairs. But the real showcase happens when you inject a mix of international artists, collectors and dealers with our usual mélange of tourists, club kids and local aesthetes.
Only in Miami. Only this week.
Which is why we are asking you to help us document it. While you’re out looking at the people art, send us your favorite only-in-Miami-during-Basel images:
Artists won’t be the only ones getting international exposure at Art Basel Miami Beach this year. Some Florida breweries might share the spotlight as well at the first annual Basel Biergarten.
Alongside “The Factory” art show, Wynwood Cigar Factory (101 NW 24th St.) is hosting a pop-up beer garden which will serve Florida brews exclusively. It’s an example of the many things that have grown up around Art Basel over the past ten years.
