PAFF & IKEA PRESENT: ALL ARTISTS HAVE A SEAT AT THE TABLE
This year PAFF is proud to collaborate with IKEA on the “ALL ARTISTS HAVE A SEAT AT THE TABLE” campaign.
Los Angeles area IKEA stores gave five world-renowned Black PAFF artists an INGO table and four IVAR chairs to transform into fine art. Each created a unique piece of art in their own style around the theme of PAFF Roots – Embrace the PAFF, Enjoy the Present, and Create the Future.
The PAFF ArtFEST takes place at the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza.
The PAFF ARTFEST is sponsored in part by grants from The Los Angeles County Arts Commission and the Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs.
