It is designed for collectors, artists, art dealers, art professionals and other consumers who are interested in all aspects of the artworld. connects advertisers with an audience of collectors, critics, artists, dealers, historians, designers, and other art enthusiasts.


Published since 1913, Art in America Magazine covers the visual art world, both in the United States and abroad, with a concentration on New York City and contemporary art fairs.
