Betaalbare kunst
Kunst geeft een huis persoonlijkheid mee, maar is vaak onbetaalbaar! Gelukkig is er  één keer per jaar de Affordable Art Fair in Amsterdam. Hier kun je ‘betaalbare\’ kunst kopen onder de € 5.000,- (betaalbaar moet je even in perspectief zien haha). De gashouder staat van 25 tot en met 28 oktober vol met moderne kunst van kleine galleries. Kunst van jonge opkomende ontwerpers hangt er naast gevestigde namen. Alleen al het kijken naar kunst geeft veel inspiratie en leert wat je mooi vindt en wat niet (lekker educatief verantwoord uitje dus!). De Affordable Art Fair is met stip het leukste kunst event van Amsterdam.
