In its first year under the Redwood Media Group umbrella, ASD will feature a new show within the show: ArtSpot International Art Fair, curated by Aldo Castillo. ArtSpot International is replicating a model introduced during Miami Art Week last year at SPECTRUM Miami. The show will present carefully selected modern, contemporary and cutting-edge galleries with a strong Latin American emphasis. Castillo, the show curator and director, is one of the most respected authorities of modern and contemporary art and has overseen the direction of more than 250 international art exhibitions. 
 
Also, returning to this year’s show is the popular LaunchPad Program. This year’s selected artist, Emily Grenader, is a recent UCSD graduate who works with various mediums to combine individuals into “crowd portraits,” exploring human connections from many perspectives. Projects from her most recent crowd series have won the Lawdale Big Show’s Junior Prize, and Kickstarter’s “Best Art Project” award. Projected on a wall at the entrance of the show, Grenader will create an interactive crowd play piece. Entering guests will have the option to get their photo taken which will be super imposed onto an interactive screen, creating a playful entrance art piece for guests. 
 
Spotlight artists and exhibitors for the 2014 edition include: Mark Vassallo (Tokyo, Japan), Carl Karni Bain (New York, NY) and New York-based artist, Jennifer Hannaford, represented by Adelman Fine Art (San Diego, CA). The 2014 Art Prize recipients include: Marianela de la Hoz, Bhavna Mehta, Philipp Scholz Ritterman and Joseph Huppert.
