The Fair assembles the premier specialists in 19th and early 20th century American art in this historic setting.

Fine Art, Hammer Galleries, Hirschl & Adler Galleries, Menconi & Schoelkopf, Questroyal Fine Art, and Thomas Colville Fine Art.
The American Art Fair immerses current and potential collectors and patrons in the legacy and importance of the Academy’s role in America and American art. The institution established over 180 years ago as the National Academy of Design was the center and primary catalyst for emerging artists to distinguish themselves, influence each other, and to define the young nation’s cultural identity.
This year the American Art Fair offers both collectors and exhibitors the opportunity to support the National Academy of Design. Each dealer will voluntarily designate certain works from which 5-10% of the sale price will be donated to the Museum.
Fair hours are 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. daily, and to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, December 2. A special seminar on collecting will be held at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, December 2. Admission to the preview is by invitation, and from November 30-December 3, complimentary. For details, please call 212.472.1636 or visit www.TheAmericanArtfFair.com.
