Officials break ground at new Miami Art Museum

MIAMI (AP) – Officials have broken ground at the new Miami Art Museum.

A ceremony was held at 10 a.m. yesterday, just days ahead of Art Basel Miami Beach, when the art community will shift its spotlight to South Florida for a few days. The art fair runs from Dec. 2-5.

The new museum is set to open to the public in 2013. It will be part of a 29-acre museum park.
