ART SAN DIEGO Contemporary Art Fair
David Malmuth and Ann Berchtold
“My interest in launching the first Contemporary Art Fair in San Diego came from attending an Art Fair in Miami Beach — Art Basel. What is now the largest art fair in the US and brings in over 500 million dollars over 6 days to the community of South Miami Beach. I was struck with how similar Miami (ten years back) and San Diego (today) were — coastal young cities that had not found a strong cultural identity. And now Miami — through this one event — has developed its identity as the home of the biggest art explosion in over 40 years.” — Ann Berchtold, Founder & Director, Art San Diego
