Brand new four-day art event with cutting-edge artwork, entertainment, and special performances timed with tennis tournament
Spectrum Indian Wells, with presenting sponsor UBS Financial Services, is a juried contemporary art show taking place in the Coachella Valley in Southern California that will run from Thursday, March 17 to Sunday, March 20, 2016. Spectrum Indian Wells is a four-day fine art experience featuring top galleries and artists, happening during the final weekend of the renowned BNP Paribas Open, which drew over 456,000 affluent tennis fans from around the world last year.
“We are thrilled to premiere one of our newest art shows, complete with entertainment and innovative art, to be strategically timed with the BNP Paribas Open,” said Eric Smith, president and CEO of Redwood Media Group. “We chose the Coachella Valley in California because, every spring, hundreds of thousands of visitors attend the tournament bringing in a vast high-net-worth crowd that’s eager to have an experience that extends beyond the tournament and we think seeing and buying great artwork is the perfect match.”
The show will take place at the Renaissance Indian Wells Resort & Spa, a lavish resort nestled against the backdrop of the Santa Rosa and San Jacinto Mountains, just a couple of miles from the Indian Wells Tennis Garden where the tournament takes place. Exhibitors include top galleries, art publishers, and established art studios from across the U.S. and around the world, with mediums ranging from paintings and photography to sculpture, glassworks, and more. Presenting sponsor UBS Financial Services will be inviting their international, national and local clients to early viewings and private parties within the show. UBS will also sponsor a lavish VIP lounge, providing tournament attendees and high-net-worth clients a place to relax and rest.
The theme for Spectrum Indian Wells is [EXPANSE]: A vast landscape of artistic imaginings. Against an expansive desert backdrop, world-class artists and galleries pursue the pinnacle of creative vision. Tickets for Spectrum Indian Wells Opening Night Preview are priced at $50 online and $60 at the door. General Admission tickets are $20 online and $30 at the door.
