No Tom of Finland NYC Erotic Art Fair

It appears that there will be no annual NYC Erotic Art Fair hosted by the Tom of Finland Foundation this spring. The annual event which takes place about a week before Memorial Day each spring in New York won't be held this year. As a venue for many artists to promote their work the fair will be missed by many. I had planned to attend this year, having missed last years. A similar fair is held each October in LA.

The cancellation seems to be part of a series of cuts and restructuring at the ToFF in the face of the financial burden of operating such an organization. Hopefully they can get back on their feet, as the Tom of Finland Foundation is, as far as I am aware the only organization of it's kind in the U.S. primarily geared toward the preservation and promotion of homo-erotic art.

For more information and even to join and support the Tom of Finland Foundation visit,
