Each year, in conjunction with the Pan African Film Festival, PAFF host an art festival. The PAFF ARTFEST features over 100 established and emerging fine artists and quality craftspeople from all over the world.
With an artistic aesthetic that is rooted in Africa and its Diaspora, featured artists present their creative works using oil on canvas, watercolor and pastels, acrylic paper, glass, ceramics, metal, cloth, plastic, wax, wire, leather, and stone. In addition to fine art and one-of-a-kind crafts, the ARTFEST also features the best in designer and traditional fashions, jewelry, home decor, fashion accessories and so much more! Representing the perfect mix of both art and culture, the PAFF ARTFEST brings out over 100K+ visitors from all over Los Angeles, across the country, and around the world. It is an experience in and of itself that guarantees something for every taste and every budget.
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.
