This Wednesday from 5 – 9pm at the Park Avenue Armory, the International Fine Print Dealers Association (IFPDA) will host printfair 09. To get the party started, the IFPDA’s Paper/Ink Committee are hosting a Treasure Hunt as an exciting way to explore the Fair.
To join the Treasure Hunt, simply pick up a Clue Card upon arrival at the Fair. Look for the Pink Elephant logo as you visit exhibitors throughout the Fair to find the prints which solve riddles or answer historical or humorous questions listed on the card. The Hunt will lead you through the Fair’s international roster of dealers as well as prints from every period. Players who correctly solve all ten clues will be entered into a drawing for prizes generously provided by the Treasure Hunt’s sponsors. Prizes will be awarded at the conclusion of the Fair and the winners notified by e-mail or mail. Prizes include: a Fou de Toi Ring in 18K white gold, Rose de France (6cts) and diamonds (0.19cts) from Mauboussin; a 4-course dinner for two with wine pairings at Bar Boulud; dinner for two at Nobu Fifty Seven; afternoon tea for two at Tracy Stern SALONTEA that includes a gift-boxed porcelain teapot and tea party music CD; three issues + catalogue raisonne + Alex Katz tote bag all from Parkett; a $500 gift certificate from Artbook; and more.
