Affordable Art Fair NYC Spring 2018
ECO-FRIENDLY FAIR FEATURES

Since our first fair in the big apple, Affordable Art Fair NYC has hosted a variety of fair features that bring awareness to causes that affect our city. 

From art therapy services for New York’s courageous survivors of trauma, to championing the education of young creatives, the Affordable Art Fair strives to give back to NYC.
 
Now in our 25th fair edition, we are determined to bring awareness to consumption, waste, and their impact on New York City and the world.
 
TRASH project
TRASH PROJECT

Discover an artwork that inspires mindfulness about waste creation.

Artist and activist Adrian Kondratowicz will present his TRASH project onsite at our spring fair. The TRASH project’s mission is urban beautification and environmental awareness. The project aims to raise eco-literacy through community events, including clean-ups, that are free and open to the public.

The TRASH project is funded through the sale of TRASH bags which will be available for purchase at the fair in the café on Level 2 / Pink Level.

EAT IN AT OUR FAIR CAFÉ

Affordable Art Fair NYC features a fully functioning café to ensure our visitors can stay energized throughout their visit to the fair!

This year, we’ll welcome Herb-n-Peach, a boutique catering and special events company based out of New York City.
 
To reduce the total amount of harmful waste produced by our fair, all food containers and wraps used in the fair café will be made from biodegradable material. The fair has also taken a no straw pledge to #stopsucking. Plastic-straw alternatives will be available.
