The Pasadena Art Alliance (PAA) celebrated another successful benefit event with its first-ever Fringe Benefit, held on Saturday, April 29th. The event promised an unforgettable evening “on the fringe,” and it did not disappoint.

The multimedia extravaganza featured fringe-themed art pieces created by the talented students and faculty of ArtCenter. The artwork was auctioned for sale, along with other themed items and experiences. The evening also included not-to-be-missed entertainment and festivities, with guests enjoying live music, delicious food, and drinks throughout the night.

All money raised by the benefit will go directly towards the PAA Grants Program and Impact Award, which fund projects for the arts and art education that make a difference in the community. The Fringe Benefit was a significant success, raising a significant amount of funds that will help support the next generation of contemporary artists and art education programs.

The PAA has been a driving force in supporting contemporary visual art in Southern California for over 65 years. The organization’s dedication to supporting visionary ideas and concepts in contemporary art has helped Los Angeles become recognized as an international leader in the field. Since 1976, the PAA has awarded over $7,500,000 to support contemporary art in Southern California.

The PAA’s mission is to support innovative, unconventional, and cutting-edge contemporary art. The organization is independent and volunteer-driven, and it raises funds by holding annual benefits, including its time-honored Art Auction and the legendary Treasure Sale, with all monies raised going directly to its grants and award programs.
