LA Art Overview

Angel City Brewery - Art Gallery | Bar | Brewery in LA

Everybody loves to party, but that doesn’t mean we have to devolve into cultureless slobs who think Dada is the sound a baby makes! That’s where all of the wonderful opportunities to experience Los Angeles art come into play. The city is brimming with some phenomenal local and international art at a host of top museums, small independent showcases, and niche exhibitions.

The Brewery Arts complex near Downtown is a must to check out the local scene, for this former Pabst Blue Ribbon brewery has been converted into a massive artist colony full of work studios, living lofts, restaurants, and galleries.

LA’s top museums would take weeks to explore, especially in the arts scene that awaits along Museum Row. Packed along these Central LA (Mid-Wilshire) blocks, the Row includes the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), the La Brea Tar Pits, and the Petersen Automotive Museum. But that’s barely the tip of the iceberg! Downtown, there’s the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), The GRAMMY Museum, and the Chinese American Museum.

Still not done? Okay, well there’s The California Science Center, The Getty Villa, The Getty Center Museum, Skirball Cultural Center, Fowler and Hammer Museums at UCLA, Museum of Tolerance, The Huntington, Hollywood Bowl Museum, Hollywood Heritage Museum, Hollywood Museum, Hollyhock House and, of course, the Griffith Observatory up in Griffith Park, which is also home to the Autry National Center.

Whew! And all of that doesn’t even include the hundreds of small art galleries in LA. Now get to work!
