Marking its 25th anniversary, Art Miami, the leading international contemporary and modern art fair that takes place each December during Miami Art Week, along with its adjacent sister fair CONTEXT, closed with record-breaking sales and attendance that far exceeded the 2013 figures. Significant works sold to both established and new private and corporate collectors, notable museum professionals, cultural foundation executives, dealers, art advisors and consultants. More than 82,500 attendees visited Art Miami and CONTEXT through its duration, with more than 14,000 patrons attending the private VIP Preview on Tuesday, December 2, which benefited the Pérez Art Museum Miami and Miami Light Project.
