We’re thrilled to report that the 6th edition of ART SAN DIEGO, with presenting sponsor UBS Financial Services, was a great success in November 2014. This year was the first in our partnership with Redwood Media Group, and we opened our doors to over 15,000 art collectors and aficionados. It all kicked off with a VIP Opening Party that hosted 3,000 guests. We also had record sales, tremendously successful special events and more.

“We are thankful for the support of our local museums and collaborative partners and for our strong partnership with UBS Financial Services – who bring numerous collectors to the fair each year and provide the opportunity for several schools to visit the fair.” stated Ann Berchtold, Founder and Executive Director.
