The fair brings together the region’s strong collector base; local, national, and international galleries; area museums and institutions; and an array of innovative public programming.

Nancy Rubins
Nancy Rubins, whose monumental assemblages are typically presented formally in institutions such as the Museum of Modern Art, will present a selection of studies of her large- scale sculptures at the fair. She is presenting a meta study of her work, scaled down for the viewer—in the work, 1 ½ inch equals 1 foot.

Sean Townley
Sculptor Sean Townley will install his large floor-based sculpture, 7 Diadems (2016), at the fair. Visitors will have the opportunity to interact with these boulder-size copies of partial head molds made from a monumental ancient sculpture of the Roman Juno.
