SOFA CHICAGO, the world-renowned art fair dedicated to Sculpture, Objects, Functional Art and Design returns to Navy Pier's Festival Hall. Now in its 23rd year, SOFA CHICAGO is the must attend art fair of the year, attracting more than 32,000 collectors, museum groups, curators, and art patrons from around the globe to view museum-quality works of art from 70+ galleries. SOFA CHICAGO recently placed #7 in the USA Today Reader's Choice 10 Best Art Events, after a nationwide competition.
New this year, SOFA CHICAGO will unveil a revamped floorplan created by Chicago architects Cheryl Noel and Ravi Ricker of Wrap Architecture. The re-envisioned design will create a more open and cohesive show layout, allowing visitors to explore the fair in a more engaging way. Changes include a new, centrally located main entrance, as well as moving the popular SOFA CHICAGO Lecture Series to the show floor, making it more accessible and visible. Other exciting changes include a second café, additional lounges, and a redesigned Partner Pavilion.
