OUTSIDER ART FAIR
New York, New York 10011
Founded by Sandy Smith in 1993, the Outsider Art Fair soon became a critical and commercial success. Recognized for its maverick spirit, the fair played a vital role in building a passionate collecting community as crowds flocked annually to New York’s Puck Building, the event’s original site after the first 15 years. In 2012 the Outsider Art Fair was purchased by Wide Open Arts, LLC, a new company formed by art dealer Andrew Edlin.
