Miami Art Week has arrived, transforming the city into the largest art hub in the country while offering a plethora of art fairs, pop-ups, and other auxiliary happenings.

Our map focuses on multi-day art fairs beginning this week in Miami-Dade County, with most of them running through Sunday. For the best culinary experiences, head over to our sister site Eater Miami.

As for transportation, the best option might be prayer. Some alternatives: trollies on the mainland and the beach, Uber/Lyft, Water Taxi Miami, shuttle service, the Metromover/Metrorail/Metrobus, and your legs. You also may want to try meditating before your drive home from work this week.

Not included here but definitely worth checking out: Wynwood Walls, which gets some new paint and reopens December 6, and Artefacto Aventura, which features an installation by Alejandro Estrada created entirely from recycled woods and cardboard.
