SeaFair Art Gallery

SeaFair, the world’s first mobile mega-yacht venue (228′) will be in Newport Harbor displaying its 28 galleries of international fine art, jewelry and collectibles from June 30 to July 13. The boat also features a coffee bar, champagne and caviar lounge, and restaurant. While the ship’s operators had planned to be in Newport for the entire summer, they’ve met some resistance from local Newport business owners who are concerned that the boat will take business away from them. As a result, the Newport City Council has only issued them a permit to operate for two weeks, with the option to apply for an extension through September 5.  If it’s on your list of things to do, you’ll want to get to Newport in the first two weeks. The next stops on the itinerary include Greenwich, Tampa and Sarasota. For more information, go to www.expoships.com.
