    Date posted: March 11, 2013 Author: mauri

    This year’s centennial edition of New York’s largest art fair, The Armory Art Show, was one for the record books. Showing his support, Mayor Bloomberg introduced the fair in a press conference. His participation during the opening of the fair directly points to the on-going role of the fair within the New York art scene. Now in its 15th year, Armory Art Show saw very strong sales and support this year that further emphasize New York’s position at the center of the international art market. In the fair’s five-day run, it welcomed over 60,000 visitors into 210 galleries from more than 30 different countries. If you forgot to mark your cultural calendars for what Bloomberg calls “the most exciting and most important” week of the year, don’t worry. NY Arts brings you a sample of it’s incredible imagery in the following photo roll.
