Issue #18: Art Basel Miami Beach (8 December 2012)

I hope you enjoy our special coverage of Art Basel Miami Beach 2012! 

The end of the year is a wonderful time to reflect and I hope we all have time to do so. I wish everyone a healthy and happy Holiday Season and a Happy New Year. I look forward to seeing everyone again when ArtCaf√© resumes in February.

What's great about this country is that America started the tradition where the richest consumers buy essentially the same things as the poorest. You can be watching TV and see Coca-Cola, and you know that the President drinks Coke, Liz Taylor drinks Coke, and just think, you can drink Coke, too. A Coke is a Coke and no amount of money can get you a better Coke than the one the bum on the corner is drinking. All the Cokes are the same and all the Cokes are good. Liz Taylor knows it, the President knows it, the bum knows it, and you know it.  - Andy Warhol
