The event will showcase Art Production Fund’s role in commissioning public art, emphasizing collaboration with LA nonprofits to amplify their crucial contributions to the city’s diverse communities.

Featured artists include Sharif Farrag, Derek Fordjour, Pippa Garner, Matt Johnson, Ryan Flores, and Cynthia Talmadge. The public can access “Set Seen” for free, with support from the City of Santa Monica extending the display of Johnson and Talmadge’s works beyond the fair until April 7, 2024.
