Tom of Finland Art and Culture Festival, Los Angeles: 5-6 October

October 5, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - October 6, 2019 @ 4:00 pm

For nearly a quarter century Tom of Finland Foundation has hosted an annual Art and Culture Festival celebrating all things LGBT, erotic, beautiful, taboo and fringe.

This year’s festival will look at censorship in art, and provide a safe, positive and inclusive environment for both artists and the general public to see, feel and engage with art of all types, in a historic location that has played host to many luminaries throughput the years.

The Festival will showcase 50 artists, both existing and emerging, including Ruben Esparza, Rick Castro and Miguel Angel Reyes; the opportunity for visitors to make art themselves during the life drawing sessions with live models, film screenings, a live auction and the annual presentation of Tom of Finland Foundation Awards – to artists, supporters, and those who make a difference.
