INFORMATION

Organized annually by the Art Dealers Association of America (ADAA), and benefitting Henry Street Settlement, one of New York’s leading social service, arts, and health care organizations, The Art Show brings together the country’s top galleries to showcase incisively curated exhibitions of both historical and contemporary works.
 
The fair's intimately scaled presentations foster new relationships, active conversations with gallerists, and close looking at works by artists representing a variety of genres, practices, and national and international origins. With a history of programming that ranges from artist performances to dynamic keynote presentations, The Art Show provides its audience with a wide scope of cultural experiences, meaningful interactions, and illuminating exposure to phenomenal artwork.

The Art Show Benefit Preview offers an exclusive first look before the fair opens to the public, convening the worlds of art and philanthropy for this highly anticipated, glamorous gathering. The Benefit Preview is attended by a global audience of collectors and philanthropic and business leaders, whose generosity directly supports Henry Street Settlement's life-changing programs.
 
As Henry Street Settlement’s greatest source of unrestricted funding, The Art Show has raised over $33 million for the nonprofit through more than three decades of partnership between the two organizations. The collaboration between the ADAA and Henry Street allows for the creation of an unparalleled art experience that supports vital services for over 50,000 New Yorkers each year.
