From June 30 to September 5, 2011 – Perry Mill Wharf – IFAE
We invite you to experience a one-of-a-kind event where collectors and connoisseurs can explore a fusion of fabulous art, jewelry and design converging in a setting that defies the rules of a traditional venue…it all happens aboard a 228 ft megayacht!
Art Newport will gather prestigious international galleries presenting an array of contemporary art including paintings, sculpture, photography, jewelry, silver, design, and fine art glass.
The Fair commences with an exciting opening night preview party followed by daily events, harborview dining and music on the sky deck.
SeaFair is the world’s first mobile megayacht venue and the fourth largest privately owned yacht in the United States. Groundbreaking in scale, ingenuity and style, the yacht – which remains dockside during each event – pairs international fine art, jewelry and collectables with harbor view dining and special events in cities along the eastern seaboard.
The $40M purpose built yacht was designed by internationally acclaimed yacht designer Luiz De Basto. At 228 feet and 2800 international tons, it is the largest ship built for commercial operation in the Intracoastal Waterway and requires a draft of only 6.5 feet allowing it to dock at small yacht facilities in central city locations rather than use commercial ports.
This creative concept was developed by International Fine Art Expositions (IFAE) – a leader in organizing leading prestigious art fairs throughout the world.
IFAE has pioneered more international fine art fairs than any global fair organizer since 1991, having established major fairs in Miami Beach, Palm Beach, Chicago, New York, Beverly Hills, Dallas, and Hong Kong . The clientele for IFAE’s major land-based fairs include many of the most important galleries and collectors in the world.
