Affordable and art don’t normally go hand in hand, but it does when you are walking the corridors of this annual event. The Affordable Art Fair celebrates the idea that art is for everyone, offering original artwork priced from $100 – $10,000, with half of the work under $5,000.  The Fair offers unique programming including a wide variety of artist and curator talks, panel discussions, kids’ activities and more.  Since its launch in 1999, over 1.2 million people have visited an Affordable Art Fair, and over $275 million in art has been sold at the Fairs.  A global brand, the Fair now takes place in Amsterdam, Bristol, Brussels, Hamburg, Hong Kong, London, Los Angeles, Mexico City, Milan, New York, Rome, Seattle, Singapore and Stockholm.
