Art Basel Miami Beach — the major art show that brings together 200 galleries, selling the works of more than 1,500 artists, and puts them all in front of the international coterie of rich people who might buy something — kicks off Thursday. The art world is already making its way down to sunny Florida, and New York will be there to chronicle the whole thing, from art market to meat market. Check out the Art Basel preview from this week's magazine, and come back all week for Daily Intel's reports from Ocean Drive.
