On Tuesday, June 7, the Seattle Art Fair made waves throughout the art world by giving the public its first sneak peek at the stellar lineup of events, sponsors, lectures, galleries, and more. What can you expect this August? Find out!
Held over three days — August 4-7 — the Seattle Art Fair is one of the nation’s top events for collectors, galleries, art enthusiasts, and so much more. The public just received its first glimpse of what is to come during the 2016 edition of the festival — and we think you’ll be excited.
Hosted at CenturyLink’s Field Event Center, the Seattle Art Fair will feature over 80 exhibitors. Among the opening events is a Beneficiary Preview, with proceeds benefiting the Seattle Art Museum. “The Seattle Art Fair Projects will debut a new series of special activities, performances, and installations to engage the fair’s public spaces, organized by Artistic Director Laura Fried,” the organization writes. “Spanning sculpture, performance, and installation, the projects will take place both at the fair and in adjacent neighborhoods, reaching a wide and diverse audience, and spotlighting Seattle’s position as a vital cultural capital.”
Among the compelling talks included in the fair is series of diverse dialogues by an array of artists, collectors, and other leaders in creative fields. The talks will take place throughout the run of the fair, in the Seattle Art Fair Theater within CenturyLink Field Event Center and will be “focusing on curiosity and the ways a distinct sense of place can create a powerful cultural context,” the fair reports.
There are countless other projects, talks, and events, that are sure to pique one’s interest; learn more by visiting the Seattle Art Fair.
