Looking for Art New York? The Contemporary ‘Art takes Manhattan Fair’ 2018 2019 is here.
Still awaiting for the 2019 edition of this Art New York exhibition, which will go live from March 7th to 10th, we can give a look to what the Art takes Manhattan Fair has brought us this year.
Held at the old Robert Miller Gallery 524 W 26th, Chelsea, New York, NY 10001, from March 8th to 11th, it brought in NYC monumental street projections, performances, live music, and the finest art.
This charitable drawing among ticketed attendees has been held thanks to the sponsors American Marketing Association and Morgan Stanley.
Many world-famous artists present to this Art New York happening, such as:
- BAFTAS Awards’ favorite artist Lincoln Townley,
- Palma d’Oro at the Biennale Montecarlo 2016 Somsak Chaituch,
- Russian Fine Arts Academy’s Gold Medal Angel Orensanz,
- George H. Lewis whose paintings rest in the private collections of President Bill Clinton and David Rockefeller Jr.
The fifth edition of Art takes Manhattan brought the finest art worldwide to the heart of Manhattan, covering the 22,700 sq ft of the old Robert Miller Gallery at 524 W 26th Street. That’s the kind of Art New York we like.
All ticket and donation revenues were donated to the Grace Institute, New York City’s leading tuition-
free job training program for women. As a token of gratitude, the AMA New York and Grace Institute
will publicly recognize those donating $100 or more. Moreover, in appreciation of contributions
exceeding $500, donors received an original hand painted bottle of Gran Reserva wine.
Artist benefactor Domingo Zapata prepared a poignant, commemorative mural for the lobby of Freedom Tower in Manhattan this year.
The piece has been unveiled as part of the building’s opening ceremony and remain on permanent display.
He is a Spanish-American artist born in Palma de Mallorca, Spain. Currently, Zapata
maintains studios in his Gramercy Park townhouse in New York City, the Design District in Miami, and Hollywood. In these private ateliers he produces Neo-Expressionist paintings as well as sculpture. He paints in both oil and acrylic, often incorporating mixed-media, collage and graffiti.
Additional commissions include a panel for the newly restored Colosseum in Rome as well as the lobby of the landmark Plaza Hotel in New York.
The next 2019 edition will be held from March 7th to 10th at the former Robert Miller Gallery 524 West 26th Street, New York City.
