2013 Los Angeles Art Show Returns to Los Angeles Convention Center January 23 – 27, 2013
West Coast’s Largest and Most Comprehensive Art Event to Expand Galleries, Programming, and Mixers
The West Coast’s largest and most comprehensive art fair returns to the Los Angeles Convention Center, and moves to the more spacious South Hall, this January 2013. Newly acquired by the Palm Beach Show Group (PBSG), the 2013 LA Art Show will build upon the concept of two distinct shows under one roof introduced at the 2012 event. A complete art experience, the 2013 fair will showcase four separate sections of work: The Modern & Contemporary Section, The Historic & Traditional Section, The Vintage Poster Section and The IFPDA Los Angeles Print Fair.
More than 50,000 visitors attended 2012 Show, which was described by NBC, Los Angeles, as an art fair that “brims with top-level talent.” The 2013 event will feature top galleries and expanded programming, including lectures, tours, special exhibits, and must-attend after parties beginning with a benefit Opening Night Premiere Party on January 23.
The LA Art Show is strategically located at the city’s epicenter where the worlds of music, sports, art and theater converge at the highest level. The continued success and momentum of the LAAS over the last 18 years has helped secure Los Angeles’ position as a world-class art destination. The fair is one of the only events on the West Coast that is considered an international destination for the art-buying public and its popularity reconfirms the ambitions and commitment of LA’s homegrown collectors.
