It's been a good year, Miami.
Sure, we've had our disappointments. CSI: Miami was canceled, meaning we'll never hear another so-bad-it's-really-bad-but-also-kind-of-great Horatio Caine pun. The Kardashians received the key to North Miami, embarrassing us all. Local tattoo goddess Tatu Baby did not win Ink Master.
But we've had a bounty of good fortune, too: A triumphant eighth Borscht Film Festival, a new home for YoungArts, a transforming downtown, and an Art Basel packed full of spectacles, from serious art to silly installations around town. And those aren't even in our top ten biggest arts and culture stories of 2012. Check them out after the jump.
