AAF CONTEMPORARY ART FAIR is back for its third year in New York City from October 28 through October 31, 2004 at Pier 92 in Manhattan.

AAF Contemporary Art Fair NYC will feature public programs including a lecture series designed to advise and educate new collectors and first time buyers, children’s workshops and other special exhibitor and visitor services. Visitors are also invited to take advantage of onsite wrapping stations, courtesy of Atelier 4.

A Private Preview Party on Wednesday, October 27, 2004 from 6 to 9 pm will benefit Columbia University School of the Arts Agnes Martin Fellowship Fund, providing fellowships for the School’s young and emerging artists.
