2009 Zona Maco Monterrey: Contemporary Art Fair at Habita Monterrey

- Melissa Mewdell,

Zona Maco Mexico is Mexico’s most important art fair. After its huge success in April 2009, the show is now heading to Monterrey from September 3 to September 6, 2009, where it will be hosted by one of the best hotels in Mexico: Habita Hecho en Monterrey.

More than 4,000 art enthusiasts are expected to flock to Habita Monterrey including Collectors and VIPs.

With defined spaces, neutral colors and a modern atmosphere, Habia Monterrey is the perfect host for this fabulous contemporary art festival in Mexico. Our favorite features of this hotel include its stunning architectural details, rooftop pool bar (with a 360 degree view of Monterrey) and huge glass windows.

At only 39 rooms, Habita Monterrey is a tiny boutique hotel – a little bit rare in the bustling city of Monterrey! Guests here can expect to receive a truly intimate and personalized experience. And, if you’re planning on visiting Monterrey for the fair, we highly recommend staying at the venue itself! (How convenient is that?).

We’ve written a hotel review of Habita Monterrey right here on the blog, so be sure to check it out.

• OMR

    Would you be able to tell me if the great Mexican sculptor Jorge Elzondo will be exhibiting any of his work at this art fair. Is their any where I could find out more about this man and his background art exhibitions and sold pieces?

  2. Hi Diana…at first glance, it doesn’t look to me that Jorge Elzondo will be there, but you can get a list of artists and galleries that will be present from the official website: http://www.arteven.com/anv/artistas.htm.

    I hope that helps!
