Fountain Art Fair was founded in Brooklyn in 2006 but has expanded. The focus is on smaller, independent galleries looking to increase their visibility. Fountain currently works with over 80 galleries showing in Los Angeles, Miami, New York and , now, Chicago.
A weekend pass for Fountain is $15 but they will honor Expo Chicago VIP cards.
In addition to Fountain the Chicago Artist’s Coalition is holding Edition, at 217 N. Carpenter Street. This fair is of affordable art. Fourteen galleries will participate.
