Center of the Art World

The Hamptons, Houston and Palm Springs all make good company. Of course, Aspen does too. It's no surprise that these locales are the chosen spots for Hamptons Expo Group's art fairs, which take place around the country on select weekends throughout the year. 

ArtAspen comes to town Aug. 13-16, bringing post-war and contemporary art from more than 30 nationally renown galleries to the Aspen Ice Garden. Set up like a boutique arts fair, more than 2,500 collectors, and those just checking out the eye candy, are expected to pass through the pop-up event.  

The fair features works in paper, sculpture, photographs and print, and can range in price from $2,000 to $1 million. Forget the price tag, just seeing some of these works is a big-city treat in small town!

The four-day event also features panel conversations and parties, like the opening night soiree on Thursday, Aug. 13. We love stopping by events like this to see what's trending on the national scale in terms of art, and to seek out some inspiration for designs to come. Plus, we always love a good party.
