The event will showcase over $4 million in artwork by prominent national and international galleries coupled with sponsors such as Maserati, Modern Luxury Media, Qualcomm, Christie’s, The American Institute of Wine and Food, The California Bipolar Foundation, and many others. Organizers anticipate over 3,000 qualified new and established collectors over the three days. The public is invited to attend the event, which marks the first time these national and international galleries with investment-grade art will be presented in San Diego.
