ART at FAIRS – Spring & Fall

Plans are now being made for Tom of Finland Foundation’s 2012 Art Fair Weekend, which will be held September 27th through the 30th. We will have a larger and more “current” venue that will be more attractive to Artists and Collectors alike, and we return to the successes of previous autumns. We want to provide a more fitting exhibition space and room, both for our formal discussions, and relaxed conversation.

An important part of this 2012 Weekend will be the presence of the winners of our biennial artist contest, the celebration of the 20th anniversary edition of Tom’s biography and the completion of our new art storage facility at TOM House.

The Foundation is steadfast in its commitment to protect and preserve artwork and to promote the exceptional artists that create it.

Art is an integral part of Gay culture. Change INSPIRES.

On Sunday, March 25th, you’ll find ToFF at LA Fetish Pride’s Street Fair! Please join us at this cultural event with adult beverage, kinky vendors and good friends. What more do you need?

Guggenheim museum planned for Helsinki

The Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation, which oversees the original, Frank Lloyd Wright-designed museum in New York as well as four overseas sites, proposed that it and the Finnish capital jointly develop a new museum.

The Guggenheim chose Helsinki due to strong local interest and tradition in art and design, as well as the city’s plans to develop its harbour properties, it said in a report on Tuesday after a year-long feasibility study. It also noted the city lacked a significant modern art collection, a gap it said the museum could fill and help draw tourists.

“Helsinki’s cultural landscape is rich, but it is also fragmented… Helsinki’s art scene lacks a centre of gravity,” the report said, recommending the city move forward with an architectural competition.

It proposed a museum be built on a city-owned site in Helsinki’s south harbour, next to the Alvar Aalto-designed headquarters of Finnish forest company Stora Enso.

Its 140 million euro estimate includes the construction and design of the museum. The Guggenheim is also counting on public, private and corporate funding to cover operating costs. The city is due to decide in the next few weeks whether to go ahead with the project.
