After decades of urban decay, Miami's Design District experienced urban revival in the early 2000s and is now packed with contemporary art galleries, furniture showrooms, and hip designer boutiques. The area's monthly Art & Design Night packs crowds into local showrooms. Every December the Design District also hosts events for the annual Art Basel Miami fair, an international, citywide exhibition of contemporary art that has become the world's premier art fair.
