Art Basel Miami Beach is usually the week after Thanksgiving. But not this year.

Gmurzynska Gallery presents historic art work and the attendance of Claude Picasso, Picasso's son, on first day of Art Basel 2016 inside the Miami Beach Convention Center.

When is Art Basel, exactly? Dec. 7-10, 2017.

If you think Art Basel is later than usual this year, you’re partly right.

Most years, Art Basel in Miami Beach, sister fair Design Miami and the 20 other satellite fairs open the week after Thanksgiving. But Leap Years throw off the schedule.
