Mark Dahle's tips for visiting Art Miami

If you want to see art, the best spot in the United States is Art Week in Miami in early December.

There are more than 15 art fairs open that weekend -- too many to see if your time is short. If you have limited time, one of the shows you need to go out of your way to see is Art Miami at 3101 NE 1st Ave. The event consistently has interesting art you won't see anywhere else.

at Art Miami

Graciela Sacco, El reportero de la serie Tension Admisible, Osborne Samuel at Art Miami.

Art Miami is open to the public Wednesday through Saturday 11 am to 8 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Chester Arnold, Collection, Catharine Clark Gallery at Art Miami.

One advantage to going to Art Miami is that it's in the Wynwood District, and once you're there, you'll be surrounded by other art events. You can start seeing the private collections at 9 a.m. (before the fairs open). After the fairs close, some of the galleries in Wynwood and the nearby Design District will be open late.

To maximize your time, plan to stay all day in Wynwood once you're there or you will lose a lot of time stuck in traffic.) There will be plenty to see in Wynwood, enough for two full days.

Liu Bolin, Hiding in New York, No. 3 - Magazine rack, Eli Klein at Art Miami. (To find the artist, start at the bottom. Find his shoes in the middle of the photograph and go from there.)

The Rubell Family Collection is worth visiting in Wynwood at 95 NW 29th Street. It is open Wednesday through Sunday from 9 to 6 during Art Week.

The Design District is about a mile away from Wynwood; it has a number of galleries and the De La Cruz Collection is at 23 NE 41st Street.

Harding Meyer, Untitled, at Art Miami.

There will be shuttles and plenty of cabs around Art Miami. Bus service gets within five blocks.

You'll usually be able to find a cab at any of the art locations in Wynwood and the Design Districts, but if you wander away from an art site during Art Basel, unoccupied cabs will be few and far between.
