Miami Art Week returns with a wider and more varied offering than ever after the event was suspended in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The Art Basel Miami Beach fair will dominate the festival showcasing hundreds of works by artists from around the world from December 2-4.

The fair features the largest retrospective exhibition dedicated to Bob Dylan and new murals by urban artists at the Wynwood Walls open-air museum.

The Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum, located on the campus of the Florida International University, will host the largest ever exhibition of Bob Dylan's artwork in the United States, starting 30 November.

At the Pinta fair, a combination of face-to-face and digital formats has been chosen for the reunion between artists and the public.

Art Basel, which was first held in Miami in 2002, is estimated to have generated between $400 and 500 million annually for the city.

Florida has already recovered its pre-pandemic levels of tourism, according to official data.

Miami's flow of tourists during the holiday season (from Thanksgiving to New Year) is expected to exceed or at least equal the 2019 levels. EFE
