The Harlem Fine Arts Show (HFAS) is the largest traveling African Diasporic art show in the United States. Inspired by the Harlem Renaissance, HFAS provides a platform for African Diasporic artists and American visual artists to exhibit and sell their works. This three-day event serves as an economic platform for the multicultural, general market and arts communities to empower and increase market share in numerous regions throughout the United States. From February 24-26, the Harlem Fine Arts Show will return to New York City to celebrate its 15th Anniversary in a new location ~ The Glasshouse in Chelsea.
A Letter from HFAS Founder, Dion E. Clarke:
To our Harlem Fine Arts Show Family,
The events of the past few months have shaken us to our core. We know now that we are at a pivotal time in history where we can all do our part to dismantle systemic racism and injustice in America. The senseless death of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and countless others must not be in vain. Each one of us must use our time, talents, and treasures to effect change.
As a Black-owned, family-run business, we remain committed to supporting our African diasporic community. HFAS believes we can make an impact through our arts & culture and educational programing while supporting our essential workers and healthcare heroes. To this end, HFAS renews our commitment to supporting the Black community through the following initiatives:
- Arts & culture programing – HFAS in NYC, DC, Atlanta, Chicago, and other cities, Live art events & virtual art events
- Community partnerships – Boys and Girls Club of America, National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Inc., American Heart Association
- Youth Empowerment Programing – Youth Empowerment Day, STEAM Initiatives
- Celebrating Black unsung heroes – African Americans in Medicine, African Americans in Education
HFAS believes that by focusing our resources in these ways, celebrates the cultural nutrition we have always provided this nation. We also believe that progress comes with all of us doing our part to push us toward a world where all are treated with dignity and respect.
Thank you for being a part of the HFAS family.
