Navy Pier
Consumer 35,000 Nearly 70 Galleries (2015) (Previous Year)

Event Overview:

The Sculpture Objects Functional Art + Design (SOFA) Fair in Chicago is the premier gallery-presented art fair dedicated to three-dimensional art and design. On par with Art Basel and TEFAF Maastricht, SOFA is produced by Urban Expositions.

Critically acclaimed and continuously running since 1994, what distinguishes SOFA from other top art events is its focus on three-dimensional artworks that cross the boundaries of fine art, decorative art and design.  SOFA is noted for its exceptional presentation, with an elite selection of international dealers presenting for sale one-of-a-kind masterworks in handsome, custom-designed gallery exhibits.

SOFA is held annually in the fall at Chicago's major destination, Navy Pier, with an average of 80 dealers and 35,000 people attending.  Sales at the fair are estimated at 15-20 million dollars per show.

With a strong educational emphasis, SOFA CHICAGO includes an acclaimed lecture series and special exhibits exploring the artworks on view and surveying new trends in the art world.  A VIP program includes exclusive events tailored to high-profile gallery clients and collector/museum groups.

SOFA has evolved into a dynamic international marketplace and community - a confluence of perspectives where art, design and people intersect.

Exhibitor Information:

All artwork at SOFA fairs is presented by galleries and dealers selected through an application process. Participation is not open to individual artists. SOFA exhibitors are expected to present museum-quality, one-of-a-kind sculpture, objects and functional art, all for sale. 

There may be many networking opportunities at the SOFA Chicago 2017 - Sculpture Objects Functional Art + Design. Find out more in the event details below.
