Illinois Artisans Program, promoting Illinois Crafts

  SOFA Chicago 2013   

Thursday, October 31, 2013

The Illinois Artisans Program is thrilled to be part of SOFA Chicago 2013 in the Partner Pavilion. Drop by and learn about the Program.

Founded in 1994, SOFA CHICAGO (Sculpture Objects Functional Art + Design) is Chicago’s longest continuously running art fair and the world’s foremost fair dedicated to studio glass, ceramics, wood, fiber and metal. During the past two decades, SOFA CHICAGO has grown to attract more than 30,000 visitors every year and exhibitors from the U.S. and around the world. During its 20-year history, SOFA shows have also been presented in New York as SOFA NEW YORK and in Santa Fe as SOFA WEST. The fair’s dynamic artist talks, demonstrations and special exhibitions
have made it an indispensable meeting place for artists, collectors, dealers, curators and scholars. SOFA CHICAGO is still produced by its original cofounders, Mark Lyman and his wife Anne Meszko through their association with The Art Fair Company, Inc.
