The Sculpture Objects Functional Art and Design (SOFA) Fair in Chicago is the premier gallery-presented art fair dedicated to three-dimensional art and design. Running since 1994, what distinguishes SOFA from other top art events is its focus on three-dimensional artworks that cross the boundaries of fine art, decorative art and design.




• 9,000,000 visitors drawn to Chicago's Navy Pier annually

• at 25 years, SOFA is the longest running art fair in the nation

• nearly 10,000 affluent arts patrons and collectors attend opening night

• 40,000+ attend the fair throughout the weekend

New faces and renewed energy sums up Heller Gallery’s feelings about this year’s event. Being one of the show’s original exhibitors gives us the long perspective. Team SOFA is doing an exemplary job in keeping the fair vibrant and relevant, and it’s no wonder it has such a large devoted audience.

SOFA CHICAGO brought a flurry of new faces, which descended upon the studio glass collecting world in full force. Eager to be educated by asking questions, eager to place an object by demanding measuring tape and eager to enhance their collections by walking home satisfied with their newest acquisition from HABATAT. Thank you for the red dots SOFA CHICAGO!
