The 4th AFFAIR OF THE ARTS in Downtown Culver City will be held on Saturday, May 30 and Sunday, May 31, and will feature a variety of fine and functional art, live music, art workshops and demos, plus refreshments and also activities for kids.
Featured at this art festival is an interactive art project titled “What Matters?”, a response to the turmoil happening across the United States and an illustration that art can play an important role in social justice and bringing people together to explore important issues. This exhibit was intentionally planned by the event’s producers from TheWhole9.com and The Peace Project, who believe that “Art Changes People and People Change the World.”
Most of the 60 participating artists hail from Southern California and include painters, photographers, sculptors, ceramicists, wood workers, glass blowers and jewelry artists. The event will also feature eclectic music from some of LA’s most loved musicians, snacks from popular food trucks, workshops, and glass-blowing demonstrations. Admission is free.
In the spirit of creating a better world, a portion of proceeds from the festival will support The Peace Project’s life-changing work which currently includes rebuilding communities in the Philippines, on-going work around mobility in Sierra Leone, Africa, and unity and community building here in Los Angeles in response to the national turmoil caused by police violence.
“For the past four years, we’ve been using the power of TheWhole9.com’s artists’ community to fuel change through the local and international initiatives of our non-profit, The Peace Project. Affair of the Arts has grown into another powerful way we can bring people in the community together around art and raise awareness of our collective ability to create a more peaceful world.“ shared Lisa Schultz, Founder of TheWhole9.com and The Peace Project.
The event will be held outside next to The Culver Hotel: 9300 Culver Boulevard at Main Street. Culver City’s downtown restaurants and bars including The Culver Hotel, Kay ‘N Dave’s, and The Wallace will be welcoming festival-goers so they can make a day of it in Downtown Culver City.
