Sept 23 Other Places art fair fundraiser and forum
Otherplaces.la is pleased to announce Other Places art fair fundraiser and forum
(OPafff), a one-day event in support of Other Places art fair (OPaf). OPafff takes place on Sunday,
September 23, at California Carts in Glassell Park from 5PM – 9PM.
Modeled after a neighborhood carnival, OPafff’s visitors can play artist-designed midway games of skill
and chance and win artwork donated by contemporary artists. Carnival goers can also enjoy food, drinks
and music, have a caricature drawn, and participate in forums and discussions about the current
movement of artist-run project spaces in Los Angeles and beyond.
All proceeds from OPafff will be used to offset costs for OPaf 2019 and related projects, helping support
the ever growing community of alternative art spaces.
