2011 Recap

Art San Diego 2011

SEPTEMBER 1 – 4, 2011

Art San Diego 2011 | Opening Night | Thursday September 1 | Hilton San Diego Bayfront Hotel

Art San Diego, presented by sponsor UBS Financial Services, experienced tremendous success in year three – exceeding targets for attendance with over 8,000 visitors along with strong sales reported by galleries. Art San Diego was held over labor-day weekend in downtown San Diego at one of the most beautiful locations on the bay front and was again blessed with ideal weather. The variety of diverse programming from Art San Diego and its partners insured that cultural visitors to San Diego were immersed in a city thriving with artistic activity.

Art San Diego, while still a young fair, offers an exceptional array of exhibitors while aiming to attract a new generation of art collectors by introducing work that can be bought within the limitations of almost any budget. A strong emphasis is placed on providing stimulating conversations about art acquisition, educational opportunities for both novice and experienced collectors, and personal talks with artists, film-makers, and designers.

Regional and International Collectors, Museum Directors and numerous Museum Groups assembled at this year’s Fair

Since its launch in 2009 Art San Diego has nearly doubled in attendance each year. In 2011 we attracted over 8,000 collectors and in 2012 we are anticipating over 10,000. Through our involvement with local art institutions, our collector club program and through client entertainment with our Sponsors and Museum Partners we are connected with over 40,000 collectors and art enthusiasts.

Art San Diego aims to build a strong cross-disciplinary bi-national philosophy to support our program, we seek to compel, nurture, and launch highly promising regional artists from different backgrounds and generations, encouraging innovative, and experimental endeavors within the contemporary art practices among various arenas (Visual Arts, Film, Design, Architecture)” – Marcela Quiroz Luna | Curatorial Director, Art San Diego
