For the third consecutive year, the City of Angels will participate in World Art Day festivities. This global event led by the IAA/AIAP (International Association of Art, an NGO in official partnership with UNESCO), takes place yearly on April 15th, and celebrates international collaboration through art.
In honor of this worldwide celebration, IAA USA, the newly formed U.S. chapter of the IAA headquartered in Los Angeles, will host a Launch Party and Fundraiser on Saturday, April 15th, 2017 at Howard Griffin Gallery in Downtown Los Angeles. Located in the historic Hellman Building, adjacent to the Main Museum and many of Los Angeles’ hippest galleries, London and L.A.-based Howard Griffin Gallery is an edgy contemporary art space featuring works by established local and international artists.
IAA USA - World Art Day is a fiscally-sponsored project of the Downtown Los Angeles Art Walk, a tax-exempt public charity promoting the visual arts and culture in Downtown L.A.
