Wherefore Art Thou?

We checked out the Brewery ArtWalk in downtown LA this past weekend. Some really interesting work by over 100 residential artists. Here’s a little history from their website followed by some of our personal favorite shots from the day.

“The creation of the Brewery Arts Complex began in 1982 at the site of the Pabst Blue Ribbon Brewery. With the passing of the Artist-In-Residence code, artists could rent live/work space in industrially zoned buildings. We rented only to artists and that is our policy to this day.

In July 1997, the LA Weekly called us “the world’s largest artist-in-residence community” and in a March 1999 Los Angeles Times article The Brewery was quoted as the “world’s largest art complex.” These are true lofts, not apartments, in industrial buildings that are a part of what has become a uniquely vibrant and creative community.”
