NADA’s Charm

Of all the fairs and events that happen during Art Basel Miami Beach, I like the NADA fair the best.  Maybe it’s because I went to a college (Purchase) known for its strong arts program and loved the environment created by artists and creative people.  I loved seeing the scruffy artists walking towards their studios in the mornings, coffee in one hand, cigarette in the other.  And I immediately recognized the same type of environment at NADA.  There was this great vibe going on in the Deuville’s Grande Lobby.  The people-watching equaled the art.
