Sofa Chicago History:
1994-Present. SOFA CHICAGO was inaugurated at the Sheraton Hotel and Towers in 1994, with 58 exhibitors and 14,000 persons attending. In 1995, SOFA CHICAGO moved to Festival Hall at Chicago’s historic Navy Pier. Since then, the exposition has grown steadily in the number of exhibitors, averaging 95 – 100 galleries and dealers in recent years, and attendance has increased over 100%. A record 35,000 persons attended SOFA CHICAGO 2007.
SOFA CHICAGO, the largest and longest continually-running art fair in Chicago, is a mainstay in its cultural and social calendar. Mary Daniels, senior arts writer, The Chicago Tribune, wrote, “New art forms never before seen and rich artisan traditions come together in a synergistic explosion of creativity at SOFA CHICAGO… A sense of discovery and surprise always permeates this show, one of the most anticipated cultural events in this city.” Jim Yood, critic and historian, Art + Auction and Chicago Public Radio/WBEZ-FM, said, “SOFA’s high-end, cutting-edge mix clearly has global appeal. It’s a really wonderful art fair.”
