I was very lucky to be given tickets this past weekend to see the Armory Show, the International Fair of New Art, one of the world's leading art fairs devoted exclusively to contemporary art. This year the show expanded to include the Armory Show Modern, a new section dedicated to dealers specializing in historically significant Modern art. At last year's show $85 million in art was sold and the show had 52,000 visitors. It was really an impressive experience and it was interesting to see art in this type of setting, rather than in a musem. I'll definitely go back next year!
