Austin, TX (PRWEB) November 21, 2013
In collaboration with the Hamptons Expo Group, producers of the nation’s leading contemporary art fairs, Modern Home Tours, a premier home tour organizer, has announced it will be hosting a series of events, throughout 2014, that highlight the intersection between contemporary art and the nation’s most unique and modern homes. At each event, art fairgoers and modern architecture fans will have the opportunity to explore featured private residences from the inside out, while exploring how modern architecture is an art form which reflects and enhances other forms of contemporary art.
“The opportunity to partner with world-class art promoters like the Hamptons Expo Group is a tremendous opportunity,” James Leasure, co-founder of Modern Home Tours, LLC, says. “Modern home design is living art, and we know both architecture enthusiasts and patrons of contemporary art will enjoy another medium for experiencing the cutting edge of lifestyle and creativity.”
Participating homes will open their doors for viewing from 11:00 am – 4:00 pm on Saturdays in conjunction with art fair schedules for the Palm Springs Fine Art Fair (February 15th), Silicon Valley Contemporary (April 12th), and Houston Fine Art Fair (September 20th). The final stop on each tour is the Fair’s VIP Lounge for a catered “Meet & Greet” Reception, where tour participants are invited to mingle with the tour’s featured architects and designers. Fair ticketholders will be eligible for discounts on the home tour ticket price.
“Fairgoers can now gain insights on how art works of all sizes and mediums can be integrated into a lifestyle,” said Rick Friedman, president and founder of Hamptons Expo Group. “Witnessing how others live with art is inspiring and will hopefully motivate more art acquisitions at the Fair. The end of day ‘Meet & Greet’ at the Fair makes it all very real and achievable.”
