About the HFAS

The Harlem Fine Arts Show (HFAS) celebrates the African Diaspora by bringing together contemporary artists with the growing class of collectors. The goal of facilitating this coming together is to showcase cultural ideas and raise awareness of this extraordinary body of work created by these international, national and local artists.

As a result of sponsorship provided by numerous national and local businesses, HFAS travels to communities around the nation. It provides a platform for highlighting advances made in the arts, education, economics, healthcare, and generally throughout the communities to which it travels. Additionally, it recognizes and honors those who by working in these various sectors, have dedicated themselves to raising up their communities and those who live in them.

History

The Harlem Fine Arts Show (HFAS) is the largest traveling African Diasporic art show in the United States. Since its inception in 2009, HFAS has had over 80,000+ visitors, traveled to 10+ cities as well as showcased 100+ artists and galleries.

As the largest traveling African Diasporic art show in the United States, HFAS prides itself on its uncanny ability to bring people of all different backgrounds together to celebrate fine arts of the African Diaspora.  Inspired by the Harlem Renaissance, HFAS provides a platform for African Diasporic visionaries as well as American visual artists to exhibit and sell their artwork. The Harlem Fine Arts Show has also created economic empowerment, educational opportunities, and professional recognition within the multicultural community.

As the Harlem Fine Arts Show honors its past and embraces the history of now, HFAS will continue to impact communities and shape the future of the fine art world.

OUR WORK, OUR PLANS, OUR INVITATION, OUR MOVEMENT

Lecture Series

Our lecture series is an educational forum that offers insights from influential professionals in the arts, finance, and diversity sectors. Discussion topics focus on the national and international impact of arts and culture.

Youth Empowerment Day

Youth Empowerment Day (YED) is a S.T.E.A.M (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) program. Since art programs are being cut from schools, YED is an avenue for students to be exposed to the arts outside of the classroom. Students from participating schools are able to tour the art show for free, watch a play depicting multicultural experiences,  interact with artists about how the arts connects to science, and speak with sponsors about career opportunities. Thus, YED is a way for students to embrace the past and archive the history of now.
