KSMoCA is pleased to announce the KSMoCA International Art Fair. The kid-scale art fair is the culmination of nearly 60 hours of special training that a select group of K-6th grade MLK Jr students and PSU students receive on commercial art fair practices. Seventeen internationally recognized exhibitors will display original artwork available for purchase through a program that uniquely pairs each booth with students who participate as gallerists, artists, and assistants in sales and curatorial projects. Visitors can find works ranging from experimental publications by young artists to museum-quality paintings, sculptures, installations, photography, social practice, comics, and new media.

The fair runs from August 11-13, 2017 in partnership with Converge 45 and includes programmed lectures, panels, and performances throughout the weekend. It is organized by Harrell Fletcher and Lisa Jarrett, co-curated by Amanda Leigh Evans and Roz Crews, and is produced in collaboration with MLK Jr School students, PSU students, and community partners. To see the latest updates on the fair, visit this link.
