MIAMI, Dec. 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- As the art world sets its sights on South Florida, ArtPalmBeach is reshaping the art fair concept for the 21st edition to connect exhibitors and collectors in dynamic new ways. The trendsetting founders of major fairs in America and Hong Kong since 1990 are once again breaking ground with a multifaceted redesign to make spaces as creative as the artwork on view. This refreshing environment enhances the experience for visitors and the opportunities for more than 60 exhibitors to showcase established and emerging talents.
ArtPalmBeach introduces arenas dedicated to discovery, from sections for displaying urban art and accessible acquisitions, to imagination stations for interacting with virtual reality. While the cutting-edge forms and compelling themes of artworks captivate sophisticated collectors, a Children's Atelier "Messy Hands" sponsored by Cornell Museum will stimulate the artistic instincts of the youngest fairgoers.
Long established as a highlight of the winter social calendar, the Collector's First View promises to be even more spectacular on January 17 as prominent guests enter the Palm Beach County Convention Center through its sparkling new entrance plaza from the new 2,700 car garage and 400-room Hilton Hotel of more than 25,000 visitors. The $45 million expansion sets the stage for a welcome as the fair rolls out the red carpet with original projections, musical performances, large-scale sculptures, and live painting.
A partnership with UNINHIBITED Urban Art Magazine- with its deep roots in the world-renowned murals that have made Miami a mecca for the most in-demand public artists - offers denizens an inside track to this democratic movement energizing the art world. Featuring works composed onsite and in the studio by a selection of buzzworthy talents making their mark from high-visibility streets to prestigious museums and galleries, it opens a dialogue for presenters and collectors to share insights about the phenomenon whose undeniable appeal transcends borders, genres and generations.
Edge | Emerge introduces novel practices and unfamiliar voices in a fresh section. Whether veterans or neophytes, adventurous or budget-conscious, art-lovers are bound to be tempted by unconventional pieces priced from $100 to $15,000, crafted by young artists or mid-career professionals reaching wider audiences.
ArtPalmBeach Week calendar of events is filled with guided tours, lectures and panel discussions onsite; exhibitions and performances and county-wide art satellite events organized by ArtSynergy.
