Now in its third year, the PINTA art fair of modern and contemporary Latin American art brings together over 50 galleries and a dozen art magazines from about 20 countries, all squeezed into the Metropolitan Pavilion on West 18th Street for the next four days. The invitation-only opening party is tonight, but the real fun begins tomorrow when the fair opens to the public and continues through Sunday.

More so than the art fair week in early spring, PINTA offers an opportunity to catch smaller and lesser-known galleries from countries with vibrant but often under-represented contemporary art scenes like Brazil, Cuba and Chile. PINTA is open tomorrow and Saturday from 12-8pm and Sunday 12-7pm. Click here for details.
