ART WYNWOOD ACHIEVES RECORD SUCCESS AND ATTENDANCE
IN ITS FOURTH YEAR 

Major Collectors from New York, Miami and Abroad Make Important Acquisitions
 
 

Miami (February 19, 2015) -
 Art Wynwood, the annual Presidents Day Weekend art fair, presented over 60 galleries, from 9 countries representing over 25 cities, featured a wide breadth of quality works from both established and mid-career cutting edge artists. The Fourth Edition reported record attendance, attracting over 35,000 enthusiasts and some of the world's most prominent collectors; as well as a strong show of patrons from the international clientele in town for the Yacht & Brokerage Show. Art Wynwood has secured its position as the most important contemporary art fair in the southeast during the winter months by offering the most discerning international collectors, art enthusiasts and seasoned cultural travelers the best opportunity to discover, explore and collect some of the most significant art works of our time.

"The City of Miami and The Wynwood Arts District continues to deliver for our participating dealers while quenching the thirst of an active international art collecting community who are visiting or residing in South Florida each winter," said Nick Korniloff, Executive VP of Art Miami LLC.  "This past weekend proved that Miami continues to develop as a serious cultural destination outside the month of December".

"For the fourth edition of Art Wynwood, the enthusiasm, focus and momentum of our local, regional and international galleries has made the fair an exceptional success," said Grela Orihuela, Art Wynwood Fair Director. "Our clear determination was to continue to grow and shape this fair into an event embodying the tremendous art character and talent of its Miami roots."
 
Christie's International Real Estate hosted an interactive booth at the entrance of Art Wynwood, exhibiting international luxury residential real estate offerings, and a new addition to the fair was a special exhibition titled SOLO Miami where a selection of local galleries, including Emerson Dorsch, GUCCIVUITTON, Primary, Fredric Snitzer Gallery and Spinello Projects, exhibited side-by-side to present solo exhibitions premiering exciting new work by consequential local artists.
