I'm sure I'm not the first person to use the Miami weather as a metaphor for what's going on at the fairs. Early in the week the temperatures were unseasonably cold--the meteorological portent of a big art chill? But the Wednesday night vernissage at the big fair drew a reasonably big crowd, and yesterday the temperature rose. Wynwood, where I was, was a-bustle as people, pedicabs, buses and taxis shuttled from one venue to another. Temps are holding today and forecast to remain warm through the weekend, but there's no word yet on huge sales or booth sellouts.
So the question now is: Deal or No Deal?
