The MPA and ArtHaus are thrilled to announce that the Mobile Photo Awards Exhibit will be a part of the San Francisco Fine Art Fair at Fort Mason courtesy of ArtHaus. The 2012 event takes place between May 17-20 and will certainly be the highest profile large scale art event to display a full exhibit of Mobile Photography and Art.
From the SFFAF website:
In 2011, a rousing 16,500 art enthusiasts lined up and streamed through the fair with in excess of $6.2 Million worth of art sold over three days. There was a bursting energy in the air and contagious enthusiasm as attendees were stunned, entertained and amazed by the wide spectrum of hi-caliber fine art displayed by the 73 exhibiting galleries. The well designed and spacious exhibit floor show cased scores of breath-taking installations, thought-provoking live performances, spectacular indoor and outdoor sculptures, memorable photography, significant paintings and historically important works on paper.
Partnering with the City of San Francisco, the Opening Gala set a high-energy and high profile tone for the fair when over 3,000 eager visitors, many of whom were the who’s who of the northern California art buying community, poured into the exhibition over the 3 hours.”
Approximately 20-25 selected works from the Mobile Photo Awards exhibit will be on display at the SFFAF for the full 4 day run.
