Fine Arts Week 2019

Last year, 18 museums participated in the first, highly successful Fine Arts Week, which was devoted to sculpture. This year’s off-site event, held in partnership with various art institutions, will offer a series of special visits to major exhibitions and little-known places.

Like Drawing Week, which over the past 20 years has become an important forum for the art world, Fine Arts Week strives to create synergy between museums, the art market, researchers, art lovers and collectors.
