We’re thrilled to report that the 7th edition of Art San Diego, with presenting sponsor UBS Financial Services, was a great success in November 2015. This year was the second in our partnership with Redwood Media Group, and we opened our doors to over 18,000 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.”

  • “Our whole team at UBS is so appreciative to Ann and all those who made this year's Art San Diego truly the best yet! This year, we worked with several non-profits to create an opportunity to expose kids in this community to more of the art and culture that exists throughout San Diego. The uniqueness of Art San Diego is its ability to bring together a variety of museums, collectors clubs, and other groups in San Diego, under one roof and connect us with art from around the world. We are so proud to be associated with Art San Diego.”

    CHRIS MARSH Managing Director, UBS Financial Services
