As with other yearly shows in multiple categories, the last 2 years has been difficult not being able to operate the same way as in the past. But those trying times have mostly disappeared and everyone’s ready to eat, drink and be very merry especially in Miami. Miami Art Week was back this year in full swing with many of the regular large shows and many more in an intimate setting all filled with art lovers and fabulous artists.
