Now in its sixth year, this breezy, indie soirée returns to its roots on South Beach after a brief stay in Wynwood. It features mostly West Coast-bred creatives set against an intimate, but vibrant hotel courtyard display. Expect affordable, offbeat works, with a few iconic names such as Diane Arbus, Frank Stella, Ansel Adams, and Henri Cartier-Bresson thrown into the mix. Forty-three galleries from across the United States and Canada offer an enticing alternative to the massive undertaking that is Art Basel in the Convention Center. Aqua Art is a healthy dose of the hip and underground.
Dec. 1-4, 11 a.m.-8 p.m.; Sun., Dec. 5, 11 a.m.-4 p.m., 2010
