Teen Perspectives: PTAC takes on Art Basel

On December 9th, 2017, PTAC and twelve guest members sped through traffic in hopes of fulfilling a common goal - attending Art Basel 2017. We invited guests through a lottery raffle that welcomed teenagers to win a free trip to the Miami Beach Convention Center, where the world renowned Art Basel is held every year. Before this all started, however, we waited at Omni Park where our bus lost itself in a sea of traffic and time somehow halted for an hour and a half.


Along our way to South Beach, our time was well spent in conversations and awe of the Miami sights along the drive. We made a quick stop at the Sultan Palace restaurant before finally arriving at Art Basel with enough time to spare. Separated into small groups filled with both guest and current PTAC members alike, we explored every crevice of the convention center with as much time allotted to us. Lastly, the night came to an end with a quick stop to the Public Art Basel space in front of the Bass Museum.
