SCOPE Miami is another art fair not officially affiliated with Art Basel but occurs at the same time. It is the 6th anniversary of this emerging art fair, and it has expanded in size and reach. Over 98 exhibitors from 22 countries, and a new artist designed 60,000 square foot pavilion in the Wynwood Art District near the Rubell Family Collection, the Margulies Collection, and other Miami galleries this is a definite place to check out. Many say this fair trumps the one at the Miami Beach convention center (but it's a matter of taste and money). In the Garden: Music provided by Ray Milian (Off the Radar, Apt 407, The Attic, Circa Saturdays, and Chocolate Sundays) In the Imperial Room: Dj Busquelo (Radio show host of NYC "Mambo Machine") and Candela All Stars dj set ("Mi Swing is tropical")
There is so much going on there, take a look at the schedule and see what interests you. DJ Spooky even leads a panel discussion.
Admission is $12 unless you have a Scope VIP card.
Another cool thing I forgot to mention are the shuttle buses running between various events. There is a shuttle running daily to the SCOPE pavilion from The Standard Miami Beach, the Raleigh Hotel and Art Basel Miami Beach (Miami Beach Convention Center).

Here is where Off the Radar comes in....
On Thursday off-site from the fair, is the Scope Opening Party @ Opium Garden
VIP Card Holders and Exhibitors are invited to celebrate the official launch of SCOPE Miami 2007 with a Grey Goose cocktail or a chilled Grolsch Swingtop. I spoke with Andrea of SCOPE last night and she said that if you did not have a pass there would be a cover charge, but since when has that stopped Miami's finest night crawlers?
