Haute Event Preview: Art Greenwich

Art Greenwich – a cultural experience like no other – brings to Fairfield County an array of dealers from around the  world offering artwork, sculpture, and jewelry in a unique, elegant venue nestled in beautiful Greenwich Harbor. The five-day event takes place aboard SeaFair- America’s Megayacht Venue- docked at the marina of the Delamar Hotel September 15th – 19th.

SeaFair’s specially built exhibition vessel Grand Luxe has proven to be an ideal venue where dealers display their work and invite and host their many existing clients in each region.

“It’s like a private club,” noted one long-time exhibitor.  “Clients like the intimate atmosphere, the elegance of the vessel, and the ability to simply sit on the sky deck with their friends and enjoy a drink and the beautiful harbor setting”.
