The Winter Antiques Show marks its 63rd year as the most prestigious art, antiques and design fair in America, featuring museum-worthy fine and decorative arts from around the world. Held at the historic Park Avenue Armory in New York City, the Show provides new and established collectors, curators and design professionals with opportunities to view and purchase exceptional pieces showcased by over 70 exhibitors.
This fair is multiplicitous in ways that few others are anymore ... with an ardent mix-it-up spirit that was once called eclectic and is now called postmodern.
—Holland Cotter, The New York Times
Each object exhibited at the Winter Antiques Show is vetted for authenticity, date and condition by a committee of 160 experts from the United States and Europe. The strict vetting regulations and the vettors' expertise ensure that buyers can purchase with confidence.
The Winter Antiques Show is an annual benefit for East Side House Settlement, a community-based organization in the South Bronx. Recognizing education as the key to economic and civic opportunity, East Side House helps approximately 10,000 individuals improve their lives each year with programs ranging from basic literacy to specialized technology training. All revenues from the Show's general admissions and the net proceeds from the Opening Night Party and other events go to East Side House and contribute substantially to its private philanthropic budget. No part of sales made by exhibitors is received by East Side House.
There is a cafe on the Show floor catered by Canard.
