The Aaron Douglas Art Fair is an affiliate of the Topeka TurnAround Team, a grassroots non-profit established in 1993 for the enhancement and preservation of Central Topeka. Since that time, like-minded citizens have come together to improve the image and living environment in some of the city's older communities. The TurnAround Team has organized and implemented the Aaron Douglas Celebration Mural at the Aaron Douglas Art Park, the Washburn-Lane Parkway lighting project, the College Hill Redevelopment, yearly community and sidewalk cleanups, and bi-annual recognition programs. The Art Fair showcases diverse and emerging artists from Topeka and the surrounding region. The day long fair also features entertainment, food and children's activities. The Art Fair takes place at the Aaron Douglas Art Park, located at the southwest corner of 12th and Lane in the city's Tennessee Town neighborhood. The park is anchored by a mural which was organized, fund raised and painted by residents of Central Topeka in 2005. The mural recreates part of the Topeka artist Aaron Douglas's mural, "Aspects of Negro Life: From Slavery Through Reconstruction," depicting black Africans as they were taken from their homeland and brought to America as slaves. Douglas was commissioned in 1934 to paint the mural for the federal Works Progress Administration (WPA) at a Harlem branch of the New York Public Library.
