From July 7–17, 2016, three major arts organizations present the Santa Fe Art Trifecta, the summer’s most diverse and exciting art event.
The Trifecta is an extraordinary alliance between three highly original arts organizations: Art Santa Fe, a Spectrum contemporary art show; the International Folk Art Market | Santa Fe, an annual event by the International Folk Art Alliance; and SITE Santa Fe, a contemporary art center designed for the production and presentation of artistic and curatorial innovation.
Art Santa Fe is an internationally recognized art show featuring contemporary and modern art from the finest galleries in the world. Celebrating its 16th year, Art Santa Fe provides a unique opportunity for exhibitors and attendees alike to honor the region’s deeply rooted cultural traditions while launching into the future with cutting-edge artwork and inspiring events.
The International Folk Art Market | Santa Fe is a colorful, cultural outdoor gathering presented annually by the International Folk Art Alliance. It is the largest market of its kind, during which 20,000 people come to meet the artists, enjoy traditional food and music, and buy cultural treasures, knowing that the money the artists bring home will do great things for their families and communities.
SITE Santa Fe celebrated its 20th anniversary last year. The organization, known for its provocative art exhibitions, nurtures innovation, discovery, and inspiration through the art of today.
A UNESCO Creative City, Santa Fe is a vibrant art center with a rich multicultural community and stunning landscapes that attract visitors from around the world. A town of only 82,000 people, Santa Fe boasts over 250 galleries and is historically, culturally, and creatively defined by its commitment to artistic exploration. Santa Fe is ranked as the third largest art market in the country and was recently ranked #3 in Travel & Leisure’s “America’s Favorite Places” poll.
