With our unwavering mission to champion creative and professional success for independent artists stARTup Art Fair has enjoyed a steady attendance growth of 30%, since its inception. We attract artists, art industry leaders,  collectors, and visitors from across the U.S. and as far away as Mexico, Canada, China, Europe, Australia and South America. Because of stARTup’s success, satellite events are popping up around us, making us art world influencers. We are the converging point where old and new expectations of how art should be seen, experienced, and purchased become more inclusive, more immersive, and way more fun.
