I’m excited for our trip to the Armory next Thursday. Please take some time to look over the Armory Fair website, and also the Armory Wiki for some basic info. Something I didn’t know…. “In 2007, The Armory Show was bought by Merchandise Mart Properties, Inc.” Anyone want to do a little digging and ask a question related to that?
The Armory buzz has spawned smaller art fairs that run simultaneously to capitalize on the collectors and crowds that converge for the main fair, and Independent is the one I mentioned to you today. It has a very different feeling than the Armory. I’d encourage you to check it out if you have time next week – it’s free (and you might get a glass of wine too).
Please leave your questions for Noah in the comments section and we’ll discuss in class on Tuesday.
