SOFA is held annually in the fall in Chicago at Navy Pier. There are about 80 dealers and usually 35,000 people attend the event with sales estimated at $15-20 million per show.

“Critically acclaimed and continuously running since 1994, what distinguishes SOFA from other top art events is its focus on three-dimensional artworks that cross the boundaries of fine art, decorative art and design. SOFA is noted for its exceptional presentation, with an elite selection of international dealers presenting for sale one-of-a-kind masterworks in handsome, custom-designed gallery exhibits.”
