Basel During Rhy Art Fair
Rhy Art Fair will present artworks primarily for medium and even small budgets. This art fair is a perfect place if you want to start your own collection or to refresh an existing one (take a look at our article about first steps in building a collection, or about the rules of art collecting). The fair is centrally located, only 7 minutes from the Art Basel fair-ground (direct tramway) and just 15 minutes from the international central station Basel SBB. The international EuroAirport can be reached within 20 minutes. One of the great things about Rhy Art Fair is that it takes place at a beautiful location – it is located at the Rhine River in Basel-St.Johann, in front of the Old town. So, you can always take a sightseeing tour or you can walk down to the venues of Art Basel 2015 to check out what’s going on there. You should use the opportunity if you are in Basel these days – because now it’s a centre of global contemporary art scene (as it was New York just couple of weeks before, during the art week).
