On November 8, inaugurating a new moment on the art fair calendar, The Art Show, organized by the Art Dealers Association of America (ADAA) to benefit Henry Street Settlement, closed its 2021 edition with an enthusiastic response from ADAA members, collectors, museum leaders, and visitors, who welcomed the return of the fair in its new fall timeslot.

Mounted annually at the Park Avenue Armory by the ADAA, a nonprofit membership organization of the leading art dealers from around the country, The Art Show drew praise for its high-quality curated presentations and distinctly accessible scale, which remains its signature qualities–attracting collectors, museum leaders, and visitors every day of the fair.

The fair kicked off on Wednesday, November 3, with the annual The Art Show Benefit Preview, drawing some of the nation’s top collectors, museum leadership, philanthropists, and leading figures in the creative, entertainment, and business communities. Proceeds from the Benefit Preview and The Art Show admission throughout the week raised approximately $1.2 million for Henry Street Settlement, bringing the total amount raised for the nonprofit to more than $34 million over the past three decades.

For the 2021 edition, The Art Show featured a dynamic program of public conversations with artists, collectors, curators, and industry experts, including artists Jacolby Satterwhite and Wardell Milan, as well as Raina Mehler (Director of Media Arts, Superblue), Christiane Paul, Ph.D. (Adjunct Curator of Digital Art, Whitney Museum of American Art), Elena Soboleva (Global Head of Online Sales, David Zwirner), Alvin Hall (collector, television and radio broadcaster, author, and financial educator), Eunyoung Park (Assistant Professor of Art History and Art, Case Western Reserve University), and Victoria Sung (Associate Curator of Visual Arts, Walker Art Center).
