ASJRA American Jewelry Event Trip To The Original Miami Antiques & Jewelry Show, February 2012

The Association for the Study of Jewelry & Related Arts is offering a trip centered around attending the Original Miami Antiques & Jewelry Show. It will be limited to a maximum of 20 people. It will run from February 2-5, the dates of this famed show, which has more than one-third of the dealers specializing in jewelry...some of the top dealers in the world appear at this show.

This year, for the first time, the majority of the dealers will be located in one location.

The trip will include all entry fees to the show and some special privileges. ASJRA experts will speak to a number of dealers ahead of time to find out the important pieces of historical interest they will have with them, and we will spend time with them looking at these pieces and discussing them. You will of course have time to do some browsing on your own.

The trip itinerary includes a walking tour of the architecture of the historic Art Deco district of Miami, a guided tour of the fascinating Wolfsonian Museum of Propaganda Art, a visit to the extraordinary Vizcaya Museum and Gardens (the former Villa and Estate of business-man James Deering, of the Deering McCormick-International Harvester fortune, on Biscayne Bay), a tour and cocktail party hosted by the Miami Art Museum, a dinner hosted by US Antique Shows for ASJRA members, a reception at History Miami following a visit to their Map Fair, lunches for three days, and possible other events to be announced. US Antique Shows will work with us to get the best rates on quality hotel rooms. Travel will be on your own.

The price for the trip will be determined soon but if you are interested email us so that we may put your name on the list to be notified when details are firm.
