We are huge fans of the Tom of Finland Foundation. They preserve art, host art classes, and throw great parties. Just to look at the artwork on the walls and the artifacts is a reason to go. Plus, the Foundation in Echo Park seems to attract the most interesting people in L.A. (Yes, that Jase Grimm from 45 Nearly Naked Photos of Chef Jase Grimm.) It's a relaxed non-judgemental atmosphere, and I always have a great time there.
The photos here, by our roving photographer Miguel Angel Reyes, depict their annual Art Fair. The event lasts through the weekend, so look for more photos here soon.
Situated on a quiet street in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Echo Park, TOM House is the site where the artist Tom of Finland lived and worked for the last decade of his life, producing the erotic drawings for which he was internationally renowned.
