Artopolis Recap

04May09

Artopolis was quite the experience. Sometimes I start to wonder what it takes for art to be considered “art”. Despite the odd pieces here and there, I discovered examples of both the absurdly bizarre (yes, in a good way!) and the insanely creative. The goal was to display pieces of art that are both experimental and “push boundaries” and I would say the show organizers succeeded!

Some of my favorites:

There was even a jello (pellet) wrestling match…

And a gem from the Antiques Show…

The Antiques Show was really the gem of the event… Prices were not cheap but the huge array of items on display was stunning! My favorites were a 3.86 carat emerald cut diamond ring at the Markov stand, pencil drawings and original works by Gustav Klimt and of course the great selection of vintage posters.

If you missed the show this year, it should be a must-see for 2010.
