Sculpture Objects & Functional Art, better known as SOFA, are major art shows presented by The Art Fair Company, which graciously provides AACG members with complementary VIP passes to all the shows every year.

At SOFA expositions, prominent international galleries and dealers present masterworks, bridging the worlds of design, decorative and fine arts and showcasing the rich visual heritage of the decorative arts alongside new, innovative expressions.The expositions also feature a lecture series and educational special exhibits.

Future SOFA shows include:

October 31 - November 3, 2019
Opening Night Preview, Thursday, October 31, 2019

SOFA VIP passes provide admission to the SOFA show for an entire weekend, including the opening preview, give AACG members the opportunity to sign up for VIP events.

Registration for SOFA VIP passes are handled directly by Urban Expositions. Registration for VIP passes to each show can be made online. AACG e-mails its members registration instructions before each show. SOFA receives a current list of AACG members and only issues VIP passes by e-mail to members in good standing. 

AACG sponsors several events during SOFA Chicago each year. In 2019, AACG will have our ice cream social on Saturday, November 2, from 2 - 3:30 p.m. in the Lakeview Terrace of Navy Pier, near the SOFA exposition. We also will sponsor a lecture, to be announced.
