San Diego's largest contemporary art show, Art San Diego, returns to the Wyland Center at the Del Mar Fairgrounds for its 10th anniversary from Oct. 18 to 21.

The annual show offers an array of exceptional artwork from local, national and international galleries alongside outstanding show programming, live entertainment and exclusive events.

The 2018 theme is [ALLURE] — the undeniable power of contemporary and modern art to captivate, seduce and charm buyers, collectors and dealers who love their work.

Two new programs have been added to celebrate the 10th anniversary this year: [The SOLO Project], a specially curated selection of independent leading-edge artists and the Access to Art Program [HOPE], giving back a percentage of art sales to participating San Diego charities.

The show features over 500 leading contemporary artists, museum exhibitions, Art Labs, events and Art Talks focused on collecting. Now in its tenth year, the four-day event attracts over 15,000 high-net-worth collectors.
