A statement from the 57th St. Art Fair Team in support of the Black Lives Matter Movement
At 57th. St. Art Fair, our hearts ache with the black community and we stand in firm solidarity against racial injustice. The 57th Street Art Fair has been a free event open to ALL since its inception nearly 74 years ago in our beautiful and diverse community, Hyde Park. Our Fair celebrates creativity, which has no racial or gender boundaries. Artists come from all over the country and our attendees reflect the diversity of the South Side, City, and beyond. While we have hosted many artists of color over the years, it's never enough and we will continue to work to recruit a more diverse artist base for 2021 and beyond.
