The Kenya Museum Society’s annual Affordable Art Show just made a record-breaking Sh3 million from the sales of contemporary Kenyan art.

The Art Show was only a three-day affair but from day one, the exhibition coordinator Dr Marla Stone said this year’s event was already looking likely to break several records.

“Normally we sell 300 tickets on the open night of the Show, but we ran out of tickets long before we were scheduled to close,” added KMS chairperson Patricia Jentz.

Around 320 tickets were ultimately sold, which Mrs Jentz notes was almost as many artworks that were on display during the art showcase.
