This year’s fair includes an exhibition by breakout NYC-based artist Mónica Hernández, who will showcase her oil-on-canvas works centered on the female form. Guests can also enjoy a snack in the immersive Pigeon Café, featuring an installation of lifelike pigeon sculptures and quirky, limited-edition paintings featuring food and animals. Budget-conscious collectors will want to visit the Under $500 Wall for a collection of creative works all under $500. March 28th from 6 PM to 9 PM, the Affordable Art Fair will host a multi-sensory performance by Philadelphia-based painter and musician, Vessna Scheff and her collaborators.
