Scores of Young Contemporaries to Attend Special Events at Art Southampton Pavilion
The inaugural edition of Art Southampton, presented by Art Miami July 26–30, is proving to be catnip for savvy young collectors and groups from up and down the East Coast. Many of the individuals and groups are very familiar with the Art Miami style of presentation and are eagerly looking forward to the fair. But there is also great excitement among first-timers, many of whom are too busy to fly down to Miami mid-winter and relish the idea of a world class art fair right outside New York City.
Art Southampton has already won the support of numerous prominent collectors, philanthropists and major art world figures who call the Hamptons home, many of whom are serving on its prestigious Host Committee. They have also made a concerted effort to reach out to the next generation of collectors.
The event schedule includes visits and events with several prominent groups, including:
- Harvard Business School Club of New York
- Whitney Contemporaries
- Museum of Modern Art Junior Associates
- Columbia Alumni Arts Patrons
- Hedge Funds Care Young Professionals
- The Museum of Arts and Design Members
- The Contemporaries
Art Southampton will take place from July 26 to 30, 2012, in a state-of-the-art, 75,000-square-foot pavilion located on the sprawling, 18-acre fairgrounds behind the Southampton Elks Lodge. The fair will commence on Thursday evening, July 26, with a highly anticipated opening night VIP preview benefiting Southampton Hospital.
