An RV on the sand and giant cabbage patch doll: Satellite fair is weird and wonderful

Get your portrait scribbled as you sip on mineral water. Chug from a keg. Hang out in an RV. Lie down on a brightly colored twin bed and stay a while.

These are all experiences that make up the Satellite art fair in Indian Beach Park in Miami Beach, and you will thoroughly be amused by most if not all of them.

Roughly 200 artists from all over the place — from New York to Texas to Oklahoma — have come together to show off their cheeky, eclectic works in giant shipping containers on the sand through Dec. 4.

The artist-run and independently owned fair features a bunch of immersive installations, including the aforementioned RV. Called “Indiana Beach,” the funky home on wheels is chockful of surprise pieces scattered about: Be sure to open the microwave, look in the sink, and even peek in the bathroom.

For the ultimate throwback Thursday selfie, you’ll need to beeline it over to “Cabbage Life,” a massive face in the hole Cabbage Patch Doll that (spoiler alert) squirts liquid from her chest.

Many influencers at Art Basel pose inside their chartered private jets. Here, you can step and repeat in front of The Vessel, a 22 foot long sailboat whose exterior transforms daily thanks to the visions of various artists.

The best plan for Satellite is not to have one, because this show is more amusement park than fancy exhibit. Organizers readily acknowledge this; in one post teasing what is to come, they add the hashtag, #notbasel.

A bit of advice for the ladies: You may want to ditch the high heels and lean in to the fun meets rustic experience with a pair of solid sneakers, just sayin’. If you tire easily, there’s the twin bed we spoke about. We actually haven’t figured out its purpose, yet, though.

As you wend your way through the myriad containers, be sure to stop by Brooklyn street artist Ohio Mike by the mineral water booth: He’ll paint your portrait in under a New York minute, and this personalized quickie souvenir is (yes) free.

If Satellite sounds a little weird, that’s because it is.

“We’ve been hustling on no sleep to get this together,” said the show’s co-founder Brian Whitely, dressed in just swim trunks and chugging from a keg (it’s art). “We want to make sure this is something people remember.”
