Don’t miss these photo-worthy Art Basel Week installations

From giant red SOLO cups, private jets, police impound lots, selfie walls and giant lady bits, plenty of exhibits are perfect for your Instagram feed. We pored over the exhibits and picked out the spots you (and your followers) won’t want to miss. Best yet: Most are free.

SOLO TOGETHER

From shunning plastic straws to Pinteresting how to compost, we’ve become more eco-friendly and aware than ever. Paula Crown’s series of giant, crushed SOLO cups in the Miami Art District will have us rethinking our favorite red party cup — after we take a photo, of course. 92 NE 40th St., Miami Design District. Free.

FEED THE BIRDS

A part of the Design District’s holiday commission, contemporary artist Dozie Kanu taps into our nostalgia by creating whimsical bird feeders and jungle gyms using entirely recycled metals. Through Jan. 2 along 41st Street, Miami Design District; miamidesigndistrict.net. Free.

JAMES GOLDCROWN

If we had to pick one place for the ultimate photo backdrop, it’s any wall by British artist James Goldcrown. Known for his work with major fashion brands like L’Oreal, Sephora, Toms, Vogue, Henri Bendel, MTV and Rag & Bone, his wall of hearts has been hashtagged more than 50,000 times on Instagram. For Art Basel this year, the artist is in town until Dec. 3 working on his latest installation — and it’ll be the first without hearts. Through Dec. 3, Freshii, 2300 NW Second Ave., Miami. Free.

INVISIBLE

Last year, artist Suzy Kellems Dominik wowed the Art Basel crowd with her 12-foot neon sculpture of a vagina. This year, she’s back with soft sculptures, investigating the impact of beauty and age on our views of the female body. Located in the lobby of the Nautilus South Beach, it’ll be the first thing to greet you on the way to the other exhibits. Dec. 3-9 at Nautilus South Beach, 1825 Collins Ave., Miami Beach; sixtyhotels.com/nautilus-south-beach/. Free.
