My favorite quote of the weekend: "Look at the art before looking at the title." Art is supposed to leave you with wonder - not answer your questions.
On Saturday and Sunday, symposiums will feature panel discussions with local and international collectors, art professionals and museum curators. Tickets to the symposiums will be $35.00 and include one day admission to the art fair.
