Inspiration Board: Art Basel Miami Beach 2012 Recap

I couldn’t make it to Art Basel earlier this month, so I appointed Miami-based photographers Shayna Batya and Charis Kirchheimer to roll around Miami on my behalf and document the creative mayhem, beautiful people and interesting trends of 2012. Here’s a colorful selection of some of my favorite images from their coverage (you can check out the full photo album on our Facebook page) as well as a couple great articles published in the past week, for an extended overview of the fairs:
