From December 5th to the 8th, a group of Visual Artists from Osceola County School for the Arts (OCSA) stayed in Miami for the annual Miami Art Basel.

The Miami Art Basel is a convention dedicated to displaying internationally- created artwork. However, it was only one of many art conventions occurring during the week. The OCSA artists visited the Wynwood Walls, a SCOPE convention and various art studios in the area.

When asked about the four day hiatus, Mrs. Calderon, a Visual Art instructor at OCSA and one of the chaperones for the trip, stated “It gives my students a chance to see how different perspectives change the art they create. Often my students feel a sort of artists’ block, and this helps them snap out of it and come back to school re-invigorated.”

The pieces on display weren’t your average painting or sketch either. There were video presentations, sculptures made of what most would consider garbage such as cigarette butts and fish hooks, and a net made of hair. Savage Kirkland, a Senior Visual Artist at OCSA, said that while he is more of a photographer and tries to “get the perfect picture”, Art Basel had a few photographs that “were half destroyed, but they were still art.”

The various artistic styles they saw at the Art Basel from the recycled-garbage art to the videos, changed the artists’ definition of art. So artists create, create with every tool at your disposal!
