TOM House is hosting an expanded program, Tom of Finland Art & Culture Festival.
Situated on a quiet street in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Echo Park, TOM House is the site where the artist Tom of Finland lived and worked for the last decade of his life, producing the erotic drawings for which he was internationally renowned. Preserved in homage to Tom, the House is visited by fans from around the world. The House also remains a home for the operations of the Tom of Finland Foundation, whose archives comprise the world’s largest repository of erotic art.
