Event description


Chicago's favorite independent artist showcase returns for its 2nd edition on May 16-19, 2019.

The Other Art Fair presented by Saatchi Art gives you the opportunity to meet a curated selection of over 130 independent artists and browse thousands of pieces to suit every budget under one roof. With prices starting from as little as $150, this is an art fair for everyone. Whether you're a first-time art buyer, seasoned collector, curator, investor, gallery owner, art lover or anything in between, you are guaranteed to find something to add to (or start!) your collection.

Plus, with unique immersive experiences, live DJ sets, event tours, conversations with some of the art scene's leading names, live art activations, delicious Bombay Sapphire cocktails and a fully-stocked bar awaiting you, what more do you need to enjoy a cultural experience right in the center of Pilsen.

Complimentary all-day parking available at The Other Art Fair. Please check-in at the front desk upon arrival to secure this offer.
