Affair Of The Arts Is Coming Culver City
November 3, 2016
The 7th AFFAIR OF THE ARTS in Downtown Culver City will be held on Friday, Saturday & Sunday, November 18 – 20, and will feature fine and functional art, music, activities for kids and an interactive art project titled “Sacred Water” which is in support of those protecting our water and protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline in North Dakota.
This art project illustrates the critical role art can play in social justice and bringing people together to explore important issues -- intentional planning by the event’s producers from TheWhole9.com and The Peace Project who believe that “Art Changes People and People Change the World.”
Nearly all of the festival’s 50 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. Admission is free.
In the spirit of creating a better world, a portion of proceeds from the festival supports The Peace Project’s life-changing work which currently includes on-going work in Sierra Leone, Africa, as well as support to those on the ground in North Dakota.
“For the past five 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 on Town Plaza surrounding The Culver Hotel -- 9400 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 come for the art and then stay for the day in Downtown Culver City.
