Miami Art Basel 2014 - Day 4, Part 1

If you thought I was done with the Art Basel posts, think again. There's just no way that I could possibly skip over what was one of the greatest art exhibits I've ever had the privilege to peruse, the Scope art show. You see, during Art Basel, there are pop-up galleries literally in every nook and cranny of the city. Some of them have an entrance fee, others are just great spaces to showcase pieces by more obscure artists who want whomever is interested to stumble in and take a glance.

The latter is super fun because no matter where you find yourself in the city, you can pretty much wander in anywhere and discover some great stuff. When it comes to the former, if you are attending Art Basel as an appreciator of the arts as opposed to a buyer, choosing which paying tents to go into is a task that shouldn't be taken lightly.

When you're headed to a museum, you've select that particual one because there is something that interests you in it, right? Same goes in this case. Art Basel's show spaces are occupied by different types of artists and galleries from all over the world and they tend to be grouped by genre, which means that deciding on where you're going to spend your hard earned coin becomes super important. (Especially since you're not spending it on the actual art.)

With that in mind, my friends and I decided it was imperative for us to check out the Scope art show because of its abundance in young artists and contemporary street art and installations. It was a giant exhibition space that took hours to go through. We couldn't get enough. Every piece was more amazing than the next. We pretty much spent our entire Saturday afternoon taking things in at Scope and below you can see some of the day's favorite pieces. Just roll over the photos for the Artist info. Enjoy!
