Los Angeles is getting a new hotel art fair

Los Angeles is getting a new art fair, started by collector Dean Valentine, which will run during Frieze L.A.
This February marks the first edition of Frieze Los Angeles, the London-based fair juggernaut’s attempt to turn the world’s entertainment capital into a new stop-off on the global art market circuit.

Felix LA is spearheaded by television executive and art collector Dean Valentine.
