Thursday was the official opening of Art Basel Miami Beach, the largest art expo in North America. It is being held at the Miami Beach Convention center until Sunday.

Pablo Picasso, Edgar Degas, Andy Warhol, Frida Kahlo, all for sale under one roof with hundreds of artists you may have never heard of, but will still awe and inspire you. Screenings and performances, discussions and public art, this eclectic mix makes up only a portion of Art Basel Miami Beach 2012. Bob Goodman, the Florida representative for Art Basel Miami Beach explains what to expect when you come to the event.

Lona Hauser, Art Basel information employee has her view of what the visitors can see here.

Only about a third of the applying galleries make it to the exhibition. Bob Goodman about the selection process.

When you come to Art Basel, do not expect to see just regular paintings and installations.

The art in Miami isn’t shown and experienced only at Art Basel, there are more than two dozen satellite events taking place until Sunday.
