ArtRio is more than an art fair; it is a unique event where visitors can view art work by the great masters along side works by up-and-coming artists. ArtRio is active on the art scene throughout the year promoting new artists and galleries by supporting exhibitions and study opportunities. The event is creating an artistic legacy for the Brazilian people who, eager consumers of art and culture, visit the fair in large numbers.
ArtRio is organized by Brenda Valansi, Elisangela Valadares, Luiz Calainho and Alexandre Accioly. Bradesco is the largest sponsor of the event, under the Ministry of Culture’s Culture Incentive Law.
