2012 International Art Circuit

One of my biggest passions (which Terry also shares) is contemporary art, and at least one of our trips every year is focused on seeing what’s new in the art world, and possibly adding to our collection. The global art circuit gets more exciting every year, with events like Art Basel Miami Beach growing by leaps and bounds, and new Biennials such as New York and Bucharest joining more established ones like São Paolo. The 2012 circuit has already kicked off with Art Stage Singapore (Jan 12-15), the Miami International Art Fair (Jan 13-16) and the Armory Show in New York (Mar 8-11). Anyone can go to these art fairs (and they are very eye-opening as well as fun), but accommodations do fill up, so make your plans now.
