Director Ilana Vardy doesn't shy from trying new things as Art Miami continues to become high-impact festival
As arts and culture in the area take on an increasingly international tone, officials of an exposition of modern and contemporary art are preparing to stage its 17th annual event in Miami Beach under the leadership of a person focused on taking it in new and even more exciting directions.
