Available At The Fair
Tom of Finland Stamps

This historical sheet of three stamps has raised immense interest worldwide and will be available at the Tom of Finland Art Fair 2014.

The three 1st class stamps were coordinated by Solja Järvenpää of Arts Promotion Centre Finland; Susanna Luoto and Durk Dehner of Tom of Finland Foundation; and Timo Berry of Finnish design agency BOTH.

A limited quantity of the stamp sheets, as well as a gift pack that includes three post cards, will be offered to Fair visitors.


Getting To The Fair & Accomodations

TOM House is served by three nearby Metro bus lines, and is only a 0.3 mile walk from the bus stop.

For those traveling by automobile, our friends at Taix French Restaurant have allowed us to use their auxiliary parking lot for the Art Fair. We will have a shuttle running on the 1/2 hour to TOM House. It will stop at the parking lot and the southwest corner of Montana Street and Echo Park Avenue.

Economical lodging is located nearby at Super 8 Motel, Comfort Inn, and Quality Inn and Suites.

For maps and further information, see our Art Fair page.
