Art Basel Miami Beach festivities continue despite Zika

SeattlePI.com Thursday, 1 December 2016
Everyone's here, said Ocean Drive magazine's editor in chief Jared Shapiro, who hosted a lavish party Tuesday night attended by celebs including Heidi Klum and Venus Williams. In a rare move, federal health officials told pregnant women to avoid the area. Panicked hotels and restaurants closed off outdoor dining areas and installed pricey bug spray systems as they fielded questions from worried guests. [...] election news overshadowed Zika, and while part of Miami Beach continues to be officially considered an active transmission zone, health officials have declared outbreaks both in Wynwood and other sections of Miami Beach to be over. Art Basel officially began Thursday, but parties, street fairs and concerts started earlier in the week — unaffected also by the noisy celebrations cross-town in Miami's Little Havana neighborhood over the death of long-time Cuban leader Fidel Castro. High-brow collectors, brokers and talented graffiti artists are taking to the streets to check out exhibits featuring everything from an oil painting by Chagall to pop-up musical street performances about traffic jams with a car-horn orchestra and a fleet of musical bicycles.
