Texas Contemporary Art Fair returns to Houston
March 2, 2012 by James
From October 18 to the 21 of this year, Houston will see the return of the Texas Contemporary Art Fair, a widely known showcase for innovative and extravagant artists from all over the world. The Fair will be the host of a grand number of projects, ranging from sculptures made of tin cans to a symbol of liberation made entirely of black butterflies. As well as artists, the Fair will also help the seemingly infinite number of sponsors show their support for the projects being displayed at every turn.
The very same fair took place in 2011 at the George R. Brown Convention Center, which is by no means a small thing, literally. The Convention Center itself sits at about 1.2 million square feet for exhibit space, and the Texas Contemporary Art Fair, while it is a large event, will take up approximately an eighth of the massive convention center’s size, so there is more than enough room for all who wish to join in on this spectacular event.
However, when it comes to attaining people to come to the fair, one can only depend on the numerous printing companies found around the Houston area to print flyers, banners, and posters to advertise the event, and come September, Houston’s museum district will be littered with a large variety of advertisements for the event.
Keep in mind that when walking around to keep an eye out for business cards and catalogs from the artists and sponsors in the Fair. These people want more than anything to know that their art is appreciated and kept well in the homes of potential fans, and picking up a small catalog is the first step.
