FAIR LOS ANGELES
Mar. 6, 2008
This January, the global art market got its first significant test of the new year as attention focused on Los Angeles for a pair of art fairs -- the Los Angeles Art Show
at Barker Hanger at the Santa Monica Airport, Jan. 23-27, 2008, and ART LA
at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium, Jan. 25-27, 2008. With the opening of the new Broad Contemporary Art Museum
set for early February, and Los Angeles mayor Antonio Villaraigosa
finally starting to get the cityís cultural affairs department in order, it would seem to be the time for L.A., a city with formidable cultural cachet in general, to step into the art limelight.
