  The iconic West Chelsea Building will host the festival's programs and events along with participating galleries including the Caelum Gallery, the Spirit Del Art Gallery and the Pictor Gallery. The West Chelsea Festival of Art will highlight important contemporary artists and the public issues at the forefront of current creative discourse - supporting intersectional feminism, LGBTQ+ rights and representation, anti-violence, and anti-racism. The festival applauds art as a unifying force of community and the cultural power it holds. The WCFOA strives to be a space of inclusion.  


We encourage you to join in on the celebration of the esteemed art, artists and galleries that make up the West Chelsea district. The Festival stands as an ode to what has been the cultural center of contemporary art for over thirty years
