CHICAGO, IL.- The Art Fair Company, based in Chicago, presents the critically acclaimed international art fair SOFA CHICAGO 2012 at the historic Navy Pier Friday, Nov. 2 through Sunday, Nov. 4. This popular three-day event features masterworks of contemporary and modern arts and design, sculpture, functional art, outsider, ethnographic, non-traditional folk and visionary art, plus related special exhibitions and a lecture series.

SOFA CHICAGO enjoys the prestigious position of being the largest and longest continually running art fair in Chicago, a mainstay of the city's cultural and social calendar. "In 2010 we added a new dimension of art to SOFA CHICAGO with the Intuit Show of Folk & Outsider Art," says Donna Davies, Director of SOFA art fairs in Chicago and New York. "We've been thrilled to see our collectors fully embrace the Intuit galleries and artists, so this year the presence of Intuit and the works of outsider artists will be integrated under one unifying fair umbrella, SOFA CHICAGO 2012."

An intriguing and informative series of lectures will once again be part of SOFA CHICAGO, as will special exhibits including The Corning Museum of Glass Hot Glass Roadshow's crowd-pleasing live demonstrations of hot glassblowing by SOFA-represented artists and master glassblowers.

One general admission ticket of $15 admits visitors to the fair, related lecture series, special exhibits and events. SOFA CHICAGO 2012 kicks off with an Opening Night Preview in Festival Hall on Thursday, Nov. 1, featuring hors d'œuvres and libations. The public is cordially invited to attend from 7 to 9 p.m. Tickets are $50.
