Tom of Finland Festival (ToFF) will take place at Second Home, an indoor/outdoor space with a large garden “campus.” Art installations, performances, and presentations will occur in select “pods” and courtyards framed by lush landscape. This will be the first in-person ToFF since 2019, and it is expected to have a large turnout.

In a press release, ToFF Vice President & Curator S.R. Sharp said of this year’s event: “Tom of Finland would have been one hundred and one this year, so 2021’s educational theme is Tom of Finland 101. For this particular ‘course,’ RAW Anatomy, the artists are our instructors.”
