Why You Should Go to The Affordable Art Fair in NYC

You don’t have to be a squillionaire to have original art on your walls ~ Will Ramsay (founder of the Affordable Art Fair)

We're psyched, the Affordable Art Fair in NYC is coming up in just two weeks on April 4 - 7 (Thursday through Sunday).  This is the event that turned our apathy for contemporary art upside down!

Why You Should Go:

1. If you are not a fan of contemporary art, it's important to GO - because you'll get to see that there is so much more to contemporary art than the very abstract pieces that are displayed at established institutions like the Moma, or the MET.  

2. To see the many genres and styles of art you've probably never seen before.  

3. So you won't think that even my 5 year old can draw that.  

4. Are you over-worked and jaded by the urban lifestyle?  Go to be inspired.

Artists from all over the world participate in this annual event, so you can find unique pieces of art without traveling halfway around the world.  Many pieces are also priced under $1,000 and in keeping with the afforability theme, the event is FREE to attend the evening of Friday, April 5 from 6pm to 8pm.  If you can't make it at that time, tickets can be purchased online here.
